Hit & Run Accidents

A "Hit & Run" accident occurs when a driver flees the scene of an accident. When there is an automobile accident in Illinois, the driver of each car should stop after an accident and exchange information with relevant parties, such as the other driver and all property owners affected. It is a crime for a driver to flee the scene of an accident.

Many "Hit & Run" accidents include drunk drivers. These drivers flee the scene as they do not want to be arrested for drunk driving, or otherwise be held accountable for their actions.

Other "Hit & Run" accidents involve drivers who fear the ramifications of being involved in accidents, and therefore, flee to avoid involvement.

While many of these accidents involve automobiles, some can include cars colliding with pedestrians as well as bicyclists or motorcycles.

If you are the victim of a "Hit & Run" accident, please contact our offices so we can help you assess your legal options. As we work entirely on a "contingency" basis, there is never a charge for our services unless and until we secure you a monetary award.

Client Reviews
I hired Tony after a car accident in 2014. This entire experience has been handled with the utmost care and attention. One of the most valuable aspects of the working relationship was Tony's ability to explain this complicated legal process and set realistic expectations. I'm very happy with my settlement!

Mr. Elman represented my wife and me after a car accident. A driver ran a red light hitting us, causing us to collide with 2 other cars. The Elman Law Group was very professional, courteous, thorough, and caring. The net result was 2 very fair settlements for my wife and me. Thanks Tony!!! Walt and Paula
I hired Anthony (Tony) Elman after the car I was riding in was hit by a driver that fell asleep, crossed the median and flipped over onto our car. That driver was underinsured. Tony was responsive and his follow-through exemplary, resulting in two settlements. Cindy
