How do I vacate a Collision involving personal injury on my driving record?

Asked 10 months ago - Chicago, IL

I was in an accident back in 2011. There was no personal injury for either party but for some reason, when i got my driving record from the DMV, it said "Accident" and then below "Collision Involving Personal Injury." This is making my insurance go up a lot. Is there any way to get this removed from my driving record?

    Answered . Did you have automobile insurance coverage at the time? I would contact or visit your local DMV and ask them for advise on how to proceed.

    Answered . Did you report it to your then-carrier?

    Did you let it go to judgment?

    Did you enter an installment agreement?

    Without knowing more, it's hard to answer.

    First step is talk to a traffic lawyer to see if there is anything to expunge or reconsider on your record. This may or may not affect insurance rates.
