Chicago and its surrounding metropolitan area are always bustling with activity. Many people rely on their own personal vehicles and public transportation in order to get from one place to another. Unfortunately, car accidents do happen, and when an accident is a result of another person's negligence, victims who are injured, or families of victims who have been killed, may be eligible for compensation.
About 25 miles from downtown Chicago, a family in Gary, Indiana may have a more difficult time suing a driver that recently killed a 13-year-old boy and injured another boy, because the driver took off after the accident. The dark-colored vehicle apparently drove off of the road and onto the curb where it struck the two boys.
