Hit and Run Accidents

If you have been injured as the result of a hit an run accident you may still be able to make a compensation claim.

Hit and Run Accident Compensation Claims

If the person responsible for causing the accident is untraceable such in a hit and run accident compensation can be claimed from the  Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB). The Motor Insurers’  Bureau is an organisation that helps innocent members of the public who have been injured or had their property damaged by an uninsured or untraced driver. You may choose to deal with the Motor Insurers’ Bureau directly, but is is time consuming and complicated. Usually people prefer to have an experienced personal injury solicitor help with this. If you can possibly get the registration number of the vehicle that caused the accident it will make you claim much more likely to succeed. If the police cannot trace the driver responsible for the injury or damage it may still be possible to make a claim. It is important to call us as soon as possible so we can help and advise you as this is not a simple situation.

How to start a Hit and Run or Uninsured Driver Claim

As with all personal injury compensation claims, you will need to prove that another person was responsible for your injury. Be sure you have a record of any witnesses including names, addresses and telephone numbers. Take photographs of the accident if possible and the accident location, showing different angles and views. If the third party driver has no valid insurance, leaves the scene or admits to driving a stolen vehicle, you should contact the Police immediately and report the incident. Always record at least the number plate of any vehicles involved.

If you are intending to claim expenses such as prescription costs and travelling expenses, remember to keep receipts as evidence.

Call us and speak to one of our experts. There will be no charge and we can advise you on whether you can make a personal injury claim. We can usually work on a ‘no win no fee’ basis so there are no up-front or hidden charges. We will make every effort to settle your claim quickly and in most cases you do not have to go to court. The process may seem complex but we will undertake all the hard work and keep you informed on the progress of your claim.
