Hit & Run / Uninsured Motorist Claims
Hit and run accidents reveal a lack of humanity in others. In Illinois, a person who flees the scene of an accident involving an injured person has committed a serious crime, punishable by imprisonment.
Accidents involving pedestrians and cyclists (bicycle accidents) often result in devastating injuries, and sometimes fatalities. If you have been injured in a car accident, or have been struck as a pedestrian or a cyclist, and the at-fault motorist left the scene of the accident, you may have an important legal claim as an “uninsured motorist,” which can be brought against your own insurance carrier.
