An 11-year-old girl was hit by a car on Chicago’s far South Side neighborhood of Altgeld Gardens yesterday. She was transported to Advocate Christ Medical Center in critical condition following the car accident.
In some situations when the person responsible for a car accident does not have insurance or is under-insured, or in a hit-and-run situation where the responsible party speeds off before being identified, an injured victim may have a claim for compensation against his or her own insurance company. In these types of situations, an insurance company will be in the position as if it were the responsible party and the relationship between the injured person and his or her insurance company becomes adversarial. In those types of circumstances, it is recommended that the car accident victim seek advice from an experienced injury attorney.
