How to Get an At-fault Driver’s License Suspended
If you have been injured in a car accident with an uninsured driver, there are steps you can take to get an at-fault driver’s license suspended. In Illinois, you simply contact the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) and identify yourself as the victim of a crash involving an uninsured motorist. You must provide them with Crash Report Number and and the name of the at-fault driver. If you do not have a Crash Report Number, one will be assigned.
After you have a Crash Report Number, you prepare a letter to the IDOT citing the Crash Report Number, your information and the information of the at-fault driver from the police report. If you have been injured, you must provide the evidence of your injury by including the portion of you medical records with your diagnosis and CPT codes used by a medical provider.
In your letter, describe the accident and your injuries and request that the uninsured, at-fault driver has his/her license suspended. At least you will feel that some justice has been served.
