Do Most Hit-and-Run Drivers in Chicago Get Caught?

Published on Apr 23, 2018 at 7:10 am in Car Accidents.

Hit-and-run accidents are more common in Chicago than in many other U.S. cities. When a driver intentionally leaves the scene of a crash without providing contact information, this counts as a hit-and-run accident. This situation happens more often on our streets than most of us would like to believe.

The statistics don’t lie. Between 2005 and 2014, 41% of fatal pedestrian crashes and 22% of fatal bike accidents in Chicago involved hit-and-run drivers. In 2015 alone, there were 53 fatal bicycle and pedestrian accidents in Chicago. A whopping 28% of those fatalities involved a hit-and-run driver. New York City, another major city where you’d expect these numbers to be high, saw more pedestrian/bike fatalities in 2015—133 total—yet only 18% of those crashes involved a hit-and-run.

When an individual, corporation, or group engages in a negligent, reckless, or careless action or inaction– whether it’s a driver who gets behind the wheel and causes a crash while drunk, a negligent pilot who lands an airplane incorrectly, or a hospital that fails to treat a suffering patient in time– individuals and families are often able to file a civil lawsuit against that person or institution that acted wrongfully. Doing so can allow victims to obtain financial compensation as well as answers to why they were injured and what happened. Answers can bring closure to a horrific event.
