What is the Motor Vehicle Administration Claims Fund and how does it work? Let's find out by asking Calgary lawyer Steve Grover for this Ask The Lawyers Quick Question.
In Alberta, we have the Motor Vehicle Administration Claims Fund. It's set up by statute, by legislation. And if you or yourself were injured in an accident, where it's a hit-and-run accident, where the party hits your car or strikes you as a pedestrian or as a bicyclist or a motorcyclist and takes off, or the other party unfortunately doesn't have insurance... It is a law in Alberta to have insurance, then your lawyer has 90 days from the day of the accident to notify the Motor Vehicle Administration Fund in Edmonton, and that's just set up as a reserve fund. Every time you register your car or truck in Alberta, there's a portion of that money that goes to this fund in Alberta for hit-and-run claims or if the other party doesn't have insurance so you have to hire a lawyer to make a claim against the fund, and the most money you can recover against the fund in Alberta is $200,000.
