Military families sacrifice a lot for our nation. We appreciate the loved ones of our active service members every month, but especially in November which is officially designated as Military Family Appreciation Month. During Military Family Appreciation Month and the Thanksgiving holiday season, we hope that our military families have a chance to be reunited with their loved ones and to spend some quality time together.
For many military families, this will require travel during one of the busiest time on our nation’s roads. According to the AAA Foundation, 51 million Americans traveled 50 miles or more over Thanksgiving weekend in 2017—45.5 million of these people traveled by car last year.
What to Do If You Are in an Illinois Car Crash
It can be overwhelming to be in a car accident away from home—particularly at a time when you want to be enjoying your family. As is the case after every car crash, it is important to get medical attention after a wreck. If you are traveling from out of state or from a different part of Illinois, you can do this by calling 911 or getting to the nearest emergency room.
Once you have received medical care, it is important to follow your doctor’s treatment plan. In some cases, you may be able to continue with your plans to see your family and you should if you have received medical clearance to do so.
Additionally, it is important to contact an experienced Illinois car accident lawyer. We are available to help you 24/7/365—even during the holiday season and even if you are from out of state.
