Uninsured Motorist Accidents
Many people assume that if you are injured by an uninsured driver that you are unable to make a claim for your injuries. That’s not the case.
In Nova Scotia, through your own personal insurance policy, you are entitled to make a claim when injured as a result of an uninsured or 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 or if the other driver was not carrying valid insurance at the time of your accident.
If you have been injured by an uninsured or unidentified driver it is important to report the accident to the police as well as your own insurance company as soon as possible.
