Hackettstown, NJ asked in Car Accidents for New Jersey

Q: What do I do if I receive a letter from an attorney in Chicago notifying me of a suit for an accident I wasnt in?

It gives me an address in Chicago where the accident happened, but I’ve never been to Chicago, nor have my vehicles. They want me to call them with my insurance or forward the letter to them. What do I do?

A: Much more information would be needed to properly answer your question such as was the accident a covered event under your insurance, Did someone drive your car to Chicago, Was your car stolen etc. Speak with a lawyer or if you have insurance for this event your insurance company. I suggest a lawyer in Illinois.
