What happens if you are in a car accident and the other driver doesn’t have insurance?

You have just been in a car accident. You are stunned, you’re a little dazed and you look around to get your bearings and as you do so, you watch the driver that caused the accident flee the scene – don’t worry – you have options.

You also have options if the person stays at the scene, but for some reason, it turns out they don’t have insurance.
Obviously, you still want to collect as much information on the other driver as you can. Collect witness statements and as much detail about the accident as possible.

In Nova Scotia, if you have a valid policy of insurance it carries with it protection for you when an accident and damages are caused by another person who doesn’t have insurance or doesn’t have enough insurance to cover your damages.

This means if the other driver has the minimum insurance of $500,000.00 and you have a policy of 1 million, then you can tap into the overage of your policy if the damages dictate a need for same.
