Chicago Hit-&-Run Accident Lawyers
If you were injured in a hit-and-run accident, you may not know where to turn to obtain compensation for damages such as medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. At a time like this, an experienced personal injury attorney can help.
At the law firm of Trapp & Geller, we have been helping pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists obtain compensation for injuries suffered in accidents for over 30 years. We understand the difficult position you can find yourself in when you are struck by a hit-and-run driver. Let us deal with legal and financial issues you are facing, so you can concentrate on getting better.
Who Will Pay for My Damages?
When the other driver leaves the scene of the accident, it may be possible for police to find the other driver eventually. In the meantime, our lawyers are skilled at identifying and effectively pursuing other sources of compensation. One source may be your own coverage for uninsured and underinsured drivers.
It is an unfortunate reality that many drivers leave the scene of an accident because they do not carry insurance. They may not have a driver’s license, or their license may have been suspended due to driving under the influence. In these cases, your UM/UIM coverage will step in. Unfortunately, the interests of your insurance company will not be the same as your interests. It will seek to minimize the amount of money it has to pay you. It may even look for ways to avoid paying your claim.
Our lawyers will protect your interests every step of the way. We will deal with the insurance company so you can concentrate on getting the medical care you need to get better.
