Hopefully someone will be able to provide some help here...
A few weeks ago i was involved in an accident where i slammed into a van who pulled out from a crossroad without warning. Got banged up, few fractured ribs, peanuts compared to some of the people here who have had accidents recently so def count myself fortunate for that.
The person driving the van has a bc drivers licence but her vehicle was insured through Ontario with Ontario plates (not sure how that works as vehicle is registered to her.. i know students get exemption but she shoudl have ontario licence as well ...either way diff topic). She was at fault and cited by police for failure to yield or something like that.
I started the process through ICBC and almost 3 weeks later i called to find out the status as i hadn't heard anything back and haven't seen the bike or know its condition. The ICBC adjuster i talked to said she asked the other driver for insurance but couldn't do anything more then that because it was out of province and through a private insurer. I asked what happens if she doesn't ever provide it and she said she couldn't do anything about that.
So that baffles me if it is true... this means that unless she voluntarily provides her insurance info i am S.O.L unless i get a lawyer to do battle for me?
Just wondering if anyone has any experience with this type of situation or what my options might be.
Thanks in advance...
