Chicago Hit and Run Accident Lawyer

Were You Seriously Injured By A Fleeing Driver?

Car accidents can be incredibly devastating. More than 35,000 people were killed in car crashes in 2015 alone, and hundreds of thousands more were seriously injured. As terrible as these crashes may be, they can become even worse when the at-fault driver chooses to flee the scene without reporting the incident or checking on the other person(s) involved – whether they are another driver or a pedestrian, bicyclist, or motorcyclist. This is a criminal offense, and an experienced attorney can help you identify and bring the negligent driver to justice.

Filing a lawsuit to secure compensation to cover your medical bills and other damages incurred as a result of the crash is already complicated, and when the at-fault driver flees the scene and does not cooperate in the investigation, it can become even more difficult. At Power Rogers, our hit and run accident attorneys in Chicago have the knowledge and experience necessary to find the driver in question and bring them to justice, as well as help victims seek compensation through other avenues. Contact us today to tell us more about your situation.

Call us at (312) 313-0202 to discuss your case with an experienced hit-and-run accident attorney today.

What Should I Do After a Hit And Run Accident?

Car accidents can be incredibly disorienting, but it’s important to take steps right away in order to protect your rights:

  • Call 911 to report the incident.
  • Seek medical attention as soon as possible.
  • If you can, note the make, model and license plate number of the car that hit you.
  • Take photos of your car from all angles to document the damage, and mark down the time and location of the accident.
  • Note any new injuries sustained during the crash.
  • Take photos of the scene of the accident if you are able to do so safely.

  • Success

    Power Rogers has won more than $4 billion in verdicts and settlements for its clients – that’s $900 million more than our closest competitor since 2000. These results include many record-setting and regulation-changing outcomes as well, including a $100 million settlement for victims of a trucking accident – Illinois’ largest injury award to a single family.

  • Contingency Fee

    Victims of tragic and life-altering accidents are suffering – physically, emotionally, and financially. We take the financial burden off victims by working on a contingent fee. This means that you do not pay unless/until we secure a financial recovery for you. You focus on healing. We’ll take care of the rest.

Common Car Accident Questions

  • What Should I Do After a Car Accident?

    A: File a police report, gather as much information as you can about the accident, and get in touch with a lawyer. The sooner you speak with a car accident attorney, the faster you can pursue financial compensation for your damages.

  • How Long Should I Wait to File a Claim?

    A: Generally, it’s best to file your claim as soon after the accident as possible. There are a few reasons for this, including the statute of limitations. In short, the statute of limitations is the legal “window” you have to file a claim. This time frame varies from state to state. Additionally the nature of your claim can influence the time you have to file.

  • Do I Need an Attorney?

    A: You are not legally obligated to seek representation from a lawyer; however, car accident claims and lawsuits can be complex. The insurance company is not on your side, so working with an attorney can provide valuable insight and guidance throughout the duration of your claim or lawsuit.
