Calgary Hit and Run Car Accident Lawyer

Hit and Run Car Accidents

In Calgary, when a driver is involved in any type of traffic accident with injuries, or when vehicle damage exceeds $2,000, they should stop and wait for police to arrive. You can find more details on this at the Calgary Police Service’s website.

Unfortunately, some motorists choose to flee from the scene of an accident. This is referred to as a hit and run and it is a criminal offense. If you are the victim of a hit and run, you will need an experienced lawyer to defend your rights. We are highly experienced lawyers, having practiced personal injury law for over 20 years.

What Amounts to Hit And Run?

Hit and run accidents are when one of the parties to an accident fails to stop or leaves the scene without providing the right information and documentation. This is an accident that may involve moving vehicles, parked vehicles, or even damage to personal property. 

The general idea that people have of a hit and run is escaping from the scene.
However, even if someone does not run away but does not provide accurate contact information for follow-up, this counts as a hit and run.

We will investigate your case and try to identify the guilty party. Often, the Alberta government will stand in as the defendant and provide compensation for your injuries.

Our office has dealt with many cases involving hit and run accidents, or when the other side does not have insurance, and we are very familiar with what steps to take to get our clients’ compensation.

All positive reviews I had read before about Dale from SL came out to be true. Dale's long term service dealing with injured people and transacting with insurance companies has put him in the category of the best experienced lawyers in our society. After my car accident l suffered quite a bit including financial setbacks. I couldn't do my physical challenging jobs, and that meant bills pilling up on my bed side table. Then Dale got me a good settlement which paid all my bills, plus compensation for my prior injuries. I will, when given a chance, recommend Dale to my family and relatives including my friends.
