40% of all pedestrians struck last year in Chicago were victims of hit-and-run crashes.

Did you know your auto-insurance policy can provide coverage even when you’re not in your car?
Pedestrians who are struck by hit-and-run drivers should be able to rely on that policy for assistance.

That’s a longstanding public policy in Illinois dating back to 1977, but it doesn’t mean you’re automatically covered.

We represented Carmen Galaraza, a pedestrian struck in a hit-and-run accident, whose insurance company refused to pay. We fight for clients like Carmen every day whose lives are changed due to accidents that weren’t their fault.

Thanks to ABC7 news for telling this story.
