Hit & Run

Were You Injured in a Hit and Run Accident?

When you find yourself involved in a car accident, you wouldn’t flee the scene, even if you were not at fault. However, there are people who do.

Hit and run accidents are different from your typical car accident, in that the person to blame is unable to be held accountable, unless he or she is caught. When you are a victim of a hit and run, you should never be held responsible for the damages involved. These costs can include medical expenses, lost wages, and more. At Shea Law Group, we are experienced in representing victims of hit and run accidents, whether you were a pedestrian, motorist, or bicyclist.

Recovering Damages

In Illinois, they have a high success rate of finding the culprit of a hit and run accident, and there is no statute of limitations to prosecuting the driver. However, for insurance purposes, the claim should be filed as soon as possible. This is where Shea Law Group can help. We will be able to help you in the process of recovering damages from either your insurance company or, assuming the driver is caught, the perpetrator’s insurance company.

An experienced car accident lawyer will be able to help you with these claims. Insurance can be tricky, especially when it comes to hit and run accidents. If your auto insurance policy includes uninsured motorist coverage, your insurance ought to cover any damages. Unfortunately, with hit and run accidents, some insurance companies will hold out on paying you the compensation you deserve. This is due to the fact that they want to wait to see if the driver can be found. Shea Law Group will be able to work with your insurance company to ensure that you get your costs covered.
