Granite City Teen Killed

Meyerkord & Kurth, LLC: A Legacy of Legal Innovation

In Granite City, IL a car hit two teenage boys as they walked to a friends house. One of the boys was killed and the other suffered a broken leg and a bruised spleen. The boys were walking along Edwardsville Road around 9:50 p.m. when they were struck by a car. The driver kept driving and was later located by police in Madison. The 26-year-old man was arrested after his damaged vehicle was spotted outside his home.

Being a victim of a hit and run accident can prove difficult to recover compensation alone. Insurance companies try to conserve their funds and victims have been taken advantage of by not knowing their rights. The drivers' identity may not be available and if the identity is known, sufficient evidence is required to prove fault. Hit and run accidents make it necessary to enlist the help of an experienced attorney to investigate and handle the claim.

In a hit a run accident, it may not be possible to know the at-fault drivers identity. However, at Meyerkord & Kurth, LLC, our personal injury attorneys have the expertise to investigate and determine who is at-fault in an accident and fight to hold that person responsible. In a situation where the identity of the driver is unknown, you may still be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
