Do not assume that you have to pay out-of-pocket for the damages caused by a driver who hit you and sped away. The Chicago hit and run injury attorneys of The Horwitz Law Group help people harmed by drivers who caused damage, but left the scene of the accident. We can help you obtain the financial compensation you deserve.
Careful Analysis and Investigation
Our Chicago car accident attorneys will investigate the accident to determine whether any witnesses may have identified the driver who hit you. If we can track down the driver, we will pursue financial compensation from him or her. We will also explore other possible sources of financial compensation. For example, did a dangerous or defective roadway cause or contribute to the accident? Was another driver involved? Did a defective airbag or seatbelt fail to provide the protection it should have?
If no other liable parties can be identified, we will turn to the uninsured or underinsured provisions of your own insurance policy. Illinois requires drivers to carry uninsured motorists coverage, yet many drivers do not know that these provisions cover damages caused by hit-and-run accidents.
Your UM/UIM coverage applies whether you, a passenger or a member of your household was injured in the accident. You do not have to be driving. Your vehicle does not have to be involved. Your auto insurance still may be able to cover the damages.
