The Chicago Tribune reports this morning that at about 2:30am four people were seriously injured in a hit & run car crash. Police report that one car fled the scene after causing another car to crash into a pole. The incident occurred at W. 155th St. and S. Torrence Ave. on the South East Side. Chicago Fire Ambulances arrived on the scene and took the serious to critically injured victims to both Cook County Stroger Hospital and Advocate Christ on 95th.
My hope in learning about a crash like this is not only that the victims recover soon, but that the owner of this car has auto insurance. Illinois requires policy holders to have and insurance companies to provide what's called uninsured motorist provisions, commonly known as "UM" in their policies.
I'm very experienced at prosecuting UM/UIM claims on behalf of those injured in hit & run car crashes and those hit by individuals with insufficient policy limits.
