Hit & Run Accident Injury

Being involved in a motor vehicle accident is troubling and upsetting, but matters are made worse when you are the victim of a hit and run accident.  The Motor Vehicle Act requires every person who is directly or even indirectly involved in an accident to render assistance and provide in writing his or her name, address and driver’s license and insurance particulars to any other driver involved in the accident.

If you are hit by a car, truck, or other vehicle, either as a pedestrian or as a driver, you must make reasonable efforts to try to determine the identity of the owner and driver of the vehicle that caused the accident.

You should call the police immediately.  You should report the accident to ICBC in a timely manner.  You should make every effort to identify witnesses and get their names and contact information as soon as possible.   You should post signs at the scene later and advertise for any witnesses as well.   If you have a mobile device, take pictures of the scene and vehicle license plates.

If you are injured as a pedestrian or a driver in this situation, you still may have the right to pursue a claim for any injuries you sustained in the hit and run accident.  This can include common injuries such as neck and back pain, as well as headaches or injuries to legs or arms.
