Helping injured pedestrians in Chicago and throughout Illinois
The first thing we try to do is identify the driver of the vehicle that hit you. That is why it’s important to file an accident report with the police, who can then investigate. A witness may be able to provide information about the vehicle. In some cases, the accident may have been captured by a traffic camera.
If the driver is identified, we can help you pursue a claim for financial compensation with that driver’s insurance company. Even if the driver is arrested and charged, an insurance company may still try to minimize your compensation. Their main concern is keeping their profits high.
A hit-and-run accident can cause very serious injuries. Pedestrians may suffer broken bones, head or brain injuries, neck injuries, back or spinal cord injuries or internal injuries. You may need surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy and medication. Recovery can take months or even years. In some cases, pedestrians are left with a permanent disability.
Medical expenses can soon become overwhelming and have a significant financial impact. If you can’t return to work because of your injuries, there is less income coming in. Our attorneys know what you are going through. That is why we fight to help you recover the financial compensation you need and deserve.
