Illinois Hit-&-Run Crashes
Hit-and-run collisions have reached an all-time high in the United States. Since 2006, there have been an average of 682,000 hit-and-run crashes each year. Hit-and-run fatalities have risen by 7.2% since 2009.
Dealing with the aftermath of a serious crash is a long and frustrating process. The financial impact of medical care, repair bills, and lost wages can be extremely disruptive to our lives. Sadly, when victims depend solely on insurance companies, they often feel even more alone and confused.
