If you were injured by a hit and run motorist, there are a number of steps that you must take immediately. If you don’t take these steps, you may lose your entire ICBC injury claim.
It’s not enough to show that you were injured as a result of a careless driver. You must also make best efforts to identify the driver.
This means you should make best attempts to take down the driver’s license plate number. You also need to call the police and report the accident. A classified advertisement and/or the posting of signs near the accident scene should be done as well.
Furthermore, you must make a written report with ICBC as soon as possible and not more than six months following the date of the accident.
Problems occur when your injuries make it difficult for you to take these steps to identify the driver. If you are confined to a hospital bed or suffer from depression or brain injury, it may be overwhelming. That’s why you need great legal counsel like us on your side.
