Q: How do i get insurance information. From a business vehicle when they will not give me information no police report

I was the victim of a hit and run. Witnesses saw truck hit my car and not leave a note it was a company vehicle I contacted the company of the driver that hit my vehicle and they will not give me their insurance information without seeing it on video. I do not have video. It took me a couple days to track down who actually hit my car I contacted the police they would not make a report they told me it was a civil matter that I would need to contact my insurance to get the other vehicles insurance information I'm thinking about taking the driver and the business to small claims court who can I sue driver or the company who owns the vehicle? But more importantly, what can I do to get the businesses automobile insurance information so I can file a claim. The business has refused to give me any information so I can file a claim and of course the driver is denying fault because he doesn't want to lose his job for a hit run

A: A Missouri attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. As a general matter nationwide, insurance information could be requested in the course of the discovery, or fact-finding, process of a lawsuit. A local attorney should advise here, since different tiers of state courts (from small claims courts to courts of unlimited jurisdiction) could have different rules for this. Good luck
