Toronto Hit and Run Accident Lawyer
Accidents are stressful any time, but they can be especially difficult in cases of hit and run accident. If you have been injured in a car accident caused by a negligent driver who has fled the scene and is never located, you may be wondering whether you have any recourse. Many victims of Ontario hit-and-run accidents believe that their options and sources for obtaining insurance coverage and compensation are limited to accident benefits.

Following a serious hit and run accident you may need to file multiple insurance claims. Accessing the uninsured motorist insurance coverage is complex and there are strict deadlines.
An experienced Ontario hit-and-run accident lawyer can help you pursue the insurance coverage you are legally entitled to receive. In many hit-and-run accident cases, there may be compensation available through your own insurance, which provides coverage for unidentified vehicles following a hit-and-run car accident.
