What hit-and-run victims need to know

It’s a sad fact, that the months with the most fatalities and injury collisions on our roads are June, July, August and September. That’s according to the Ontario Ministry of Transportation’s 2016 Ontario Road Safety Annual Report.

And nearly every day in the news we hear about wrong-way collisions on major highways, road rage incidents and even violent car thefts causing injuries.

The higher prevalence of dangerous collisions on our roadways is partly due to the seasons, and law offices typically see an increase in traffic collision claims in the summer months, as there are more people out and about and on the streets. Roads are quite busy and there is an increase in pedestrians and cyclists on streets.

Not surprisingly, with more people on the roads in general, more accidents are occurring. According to

Transport Canada

data on all reportable motor vehicle collisions, in 2021 there were 108,018 total injuries, an increase of 3.6% from 2020, when there were 104,286.

While all accidents on our roadways are sad and unfortunate, the most tragic tend to be hit-and-run incidents. Even if victims survive, they are often in a tough spot, as they are injured and left with medical bills and possibly property damage to pay on their own.
