Illinois Hit-&-Run Crashes
Few things are as traumatic as being injured in a hit-and-run. These crashes overwhelmingly involve pedestrians and cyclists who are unable to pursue their assailants. Sadly, many pedestrians lose their lives in hit-and-run crashes.
Hit-and-runs happen with alarming frequency across Chicago. 41 percent of fatal pedestrian crashes in the city in 2014 involved hit-and-run accidents. Those impacted may feel that they lack legal recourse after a fatal hit-and-run.
