Illinois Hit and Run Laws
According to Illinois Compiled Statutes 625 ILCS 5/11-402, any person involved in an auto accident who does not remain at the scene until emergency personnel arrives is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor. If the accident involved certain aggravating circumstances, such as serious bodily injury, death, or substantial property damage, the charges may be upgraded to a higher class of misdemeanor or even a felony. The person who hit your vehicle and took off is a criminal and should be held accountable for their wrongdoing. We have investigative resources that have been very successful in tracking down hit and run drivers who have injured our clients.
When we conduct your free case evaluation, we will ask you questions about the accident itself, and what you remember about it and the vehicle that hit you. Ideally, we will track down the at-fault driver, hold them liable, and extract compensation from them and their insurance company. But even if they prove impossible to track down, we have a number of ways to pursue the same level of compensation on your behalf. We want to make sure you are not on the hook for accident-related losses that are not your fault.

We Take on the Insurance Companies
Regardless of whether or not we ultimately track down the hit and run driver who injured you, the compensation for your injuries is most likely to come from an insurance company—either yours, the other driver’s, or both. You may wish to have a legal team on your side that is adept at insurance company negotiations and will fight for full and fair compensation.
At The Kryder Law Group, LLC, our attorneys have a long track record of fighting and winning against the insurance companies. Insurance representatives have a financial interest in paying out as little as possible—or, ideally, nothing at all—but we may be able to approach them with a case for why you deserve more. We are very familiar with how they work and the negotiation tactics they use, and we will be prepared for anything they throw our way.
If your insurance company contacts you after a hit and run accident, do not answer any of their questions until you have spoken with a legal professional, and beyond that point, steer them to your attorney to discuss the details of the collision. Assume that anything you tell an insurance company adjuster could get twisted and taken out of context and used against you in their mission to reduce or deny your claim. Let an Aurora hit and run accident lawyer from our team be your liaison with the insurance company and help you get the fair compensation you deserve.
