Fatal Hit-and-Run Crashes in Chicago
Pedestrian deaths in the United States have increased by about 40% in recent years, with many of these incidents being the result of hit-and-run drivers. Chicago and Springfield, two of America’s most populated and walkable cities, are both located in Illinois. Pedestrians also stand a higher risk of death or serious injury on the streets of these highly populated areas.
However, other motorists might be impacted by hit-and-run accidents, in which a driver crashes another vehicle and then flees the scene.
Victims of a catastrophic catastrophe may feel helpless in the face of ongoing physical pain, intense mental anguish, and/or substantial financial commitments. Many people who are involved in accidents don’t make it, leaving behind mourning loved ones and funeral costs.
