Hit and Run Accident
The law imposes a duty on a driver involved in a car accident to remain at the scene of the accident. Drivers involved in a car crash are required to provide license and insurance information to the person that was hit. Unfortunately, some drivers do not obey the law and leave an accident scene before identifying themselves or providing insurance information to injured people.
Statistics involving hit and run accidents are alarming. In 2012, there were 48,000 hit and run accidents in British Columbia, and 2,000 resulted in personal injury. After a hit and run accident, the police will often do little or no investigation. The victim of the accident is at the mercy of ICBC and has to prove the unidentified driver is at fault and that they have a valid claim. While victims of hit and run accidents have a right to claim compensation from ICBC, the claims process for a hit and run accident is complex and has strict time limits. ICBC has no legal obligation to help you make a hit and run claim.
