Fighting For Your Rights After A Hit-And-Run Accident

After a hit-and-run accident, you may wonder what to do next. Without knowing who the at-fault driver is or their insurance information, obtaining compensation for your injuries can be even more complex. Our hit-and-run car accident attorneys at the Orzoff Law Offices have the experience and knowledge necessary to help you recover.

For over 55 years, injured accident victims in the greater Chicago area have trusted our lawyers to fight for them. We provide a boutique law firm experience, with the personal attention and tailored representation you deserve along with the experience and knowledge of a big law firm.

You Have Options To Recover Compensation

A hit-and-run accident happens when the at-fault driver flees the scene of the accident without giving you their information or waiting for the police. Although it is illegal in Illinois to flee the scene of an accident and can even result in a felony charge, hit-and-run crashes are still common in the Chicago area.

The first step we will take after a hit-and-run accident is to try to identify and find the at-fault driver to file a claim against them. Unlike in a regular car accident personal injury claim, you cannot recover damages from the at-fault party’s insurer in a hit-and-run case if you cannot locate the driver. Instead, you must rely on your uninsured motorist coverage through your own automobile insurance.

Depending on the circumstances of your case, you can obtain damages for your economic and noneconomic damages resulting from your accident. Economic damages include compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, lost future income and rehabilitation costs. Noneconomic damages include pain and suffering and compensation for any permanent disfigurement or disability.
