What if there is no insurance on the car which hit me or the other driver flees the scene of the accident - do I still have a claim?
If the accident occurred in Alberta you may be able to recover damages for your injuries from the Alberta Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund (MVACF). The MVACF does not cover damages to your vehicle. If you are involved in an accident involving an uninsured driver or hit and run driver you must give the MVACF notice of the accident within 90 days of the date of the accident. Recovery from the MVACF is limited to a maximum of $200,000.00. Every year we handle many claims involving the MVACF. Call James H. Brown & Associates for a free consultation.
