Being involved in any kind of road accident can be a traumatic experience. If your road accident is a hit and run, this trauma can be further compounded.
Making a claim for a hit and run road accident is possible in many instances even if the driver of the vehicle that fled is not traceable. If the driver is not insured or cannot be traced then it is possible in many cases that you can claim through the Motor Insurers Bureau.
If the driver is traced by the police and has insurance then your claim can be pursued in the same manner as other road accident claims.
The personal injury solicitors at First Personal Injury are on-hand to help you with your claim. Please get in touch today on 0800 808 9740 or contact us online.
In all accidents, it is important to ensure you report the incident to the police as soon as you can.
The MIB is an organisation that exists to help people who have been innocently injured in road accidents by providing compensation in cases where the blameworthy driver does not have valid insurance or is untraceable by police.
If you or someone you know has been involved in a hit and run accident and they or you have suffered injuries because of third party negligence then you could be able to make a personal injury compensation claim.
An accident may have left you in a position where you have been unable to work and have therefore suffered a loss of earnings. Your injury could have also caused you significant physical and psychological pain and suffering and you may also have had to pay for medical assistance such as physiotherapy or walking aides.
Evidence such as photographs of the accident, vehicle and driver details and any details of witnesses who may have observed your hit and run accident are also helpful in personal injury claims. If you have received medical treatment in relation to your injury then please keep all receipts as it may be possible to claim back for these out of pocket expenses.
