Family Law and Personal Injury Attorneys
When auto accidents happen, most drivers respond appropriately by stopping, assessing the situation, and providing their contact and insurance information to the police and other involved parties. Sometimes, however, a driver involved in an accident leaves the scene, often in an effort to avoid responsibility for the situation. Leaving the scene of an accident, also known as a “hit and run,” is against the law in Illinois.
For those injured in a hit and run accident, or who have suffered any type of loss due to such an accident, recovering damages can be extremely difficult. At the Law Offices of Martoccio & Martoccio, we understand the challenges a hit and run accident can present and are equipped to help you.
When you have been injured in any type of accident, your first priority should be your health. It is important that you receive the medical treatment and care necessary to get back on your feet. Then, with the help of an experienced personal injury attorney, you can look toward recovering compensation for your injuries.
A driver who leaves the scene of an accident often has something to hide. He or she may have been driving illegally, driving under the influence, or wanted in conjunction with other proceedings. It is also possible that he or she felt responsible for the accident and was afraid of dealing with the consequences.
Our attorneys, however, recognize the importance of finding the hit and run driver and ensuring he or she is held liable for his or her actions. We are prepared to work with law enforcement and insurance companies to investigate your case, doing whatever is necessary to identify the responsible driver.
While injuries to other drivers and passengers are common in hit and run accidents, a hit and run claim may also include injuries to pedestrians and cyclists, in addition to various types of property damage. Whether you were in another vehicle during the accident, or a driver hit your parked car and fled the scene, you may be entitled to seek compensation for your loss.
