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.

What Should You 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.
