There are strict requirements and procedures for identifying the offending vehicle after an accident, in particular when an accident is a hit-and-run. A person injured in such an accident must take a number of steps to protect their claim, including giving ICBC written notice of the accident as soon as reasonably practicable, and in any event within 6 months of its occurrence, as well as making reasonable efforts to find out the identity of the driver of the other vehicle. Without meeting this obligation, your claim will likely fail. Many of the requirements that must be met after a hit-and-run accident, including what is meant by ‘reasonable efforts’ to identify the other driver, can be difficult for a layperson to fulfill, and it is strongly recommended that you speak with a personal injury or ICBC lawyer as soon as possible after you are involved in such an accident to ensure all the steps necessary to protect your claim are taken.
