Hit and Run Accident Attorneys – The Horwitz Law Group

As a major city, Chicago has many sidewalks and walking paths that allows for many to walk on regular basis. When drivers fail to pay attention, collisions may occur. Roughly 4 people die every day because of a hit and run accident. There are specific procedures that must be followed depending on the type of accident that occurred such as causing damaging only property or injuring or killing another person. The law requires the drivers involved in an accident stop in order to exchange contact information.

There are many reasons drivers leave the scene after an accident. It could be the driver is intoxicated and do not want to be arrested for a DUI. Some other reasons are the driver is driving without a license or insurance. Leaving the scene can prove dangerous as the victim may require medical attention but are unable to call for help themselves. Hit and run accidents often result in death. Even if death is not involved, the injuries can be severe and life altering. These injuries include brain or spinal injury or amputation. If you have uninsured motorist coverage your insurance company should cover the damages of any injuries obtained. However, they may be reluctant to pay if they think the culprit can be found. It is important to hire an experienced lawyer that can get all the evidence necessary to get the maximum compensation.

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?

Each case is different and needs to be assessed by a lawyer who understands the intersection of personal injury law and insurance coverage. There is no charge to learn if we can help.
