A car crash that involves an unidentified driver often requires immediate attention from a skilled and resourceful lawyer. If the driver has fled the scene, investigations and the process of gathering witness statements must begin as soon as possible. It is in your best interests to seek counsel from an experienced lawyer.
At McLeish Orlando LLP, we offer the experience, knowledge and expertise necessary to help our clients obtain the compensation, rehabilitation and medical treatment they need to recover from injuries suffered in a hit-and-run collision, motor vehicle crash or other personal injury matter.
Insurance Policies and Unidentified Drivers
In Ontario, most individuals have coverage in their auto policy for underinsured/uninsured or unidentified drivers. This part of a policy is called a family protection endorsement. Our firm can assist in determining if this is part of your auto policy.
Under this part of a policy, the testimony of an independent witness or non-family member, or tangible evidence such as a broken tail light, can provide objective evidence in an accident situation. If physical evidence or independent witness evidence is not discovered, you could be precluded from obtaining compensation under that portion of the policy.
At McLeish Orlando LLP, we take immediate action and work to make certain that all sources of insurance compensation and rehabilitation are pursued. We work with investigators, gather information from engineers and gather witness statements in order to conduct the most thorough investigation. We review documented markings on the street and work with accident reconstructionists to assist in the information gathering process. Our lawyers will also review police statements and consult with police officers in obtaining additional evidence.
