Hit and Run Accidents
As if being in an accident isn’t bad enough. Imagine that the other driver takes off without stopping or leaving any contact information!
As frustrating as this is, there’s no need worry. There is insurance in place for these situations.
Personal Insurance Policy
In Nova Scotia, through your own personal insurance policy, you are entitled to make a claim when injured as a result of an unidentified driver. This is often referred to as a “Section D” claim. This particular section of your policy will respond to your claim if you are injured in a hit and run accident.
If you have been involved in an hit and run accident, it is important to report the accident to the police as well as your own insurance company as soon as possible.
