If you have decided to make a compensation claim following a personal injury then you may be wondering where to…
Going through a hit and run road traffic accident can be traumatic and distressing. The cost of a personal injury and vehicle repairs can leave innocent parties significantly out-of-pocket. Being involved in a road accident is bad enough, but it is even worse when the responsible driver breaks the law by fleeing the scene without providing their details.
If you’re making a hit and run compensation claim, you will receive your payout through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau. This fund was set up by insurance companies to cover the cost of compensation claims for people who were involved in car accidents involving untraceable drivers.
Many times, the perpetrator in a hit and run is later identified and arrested by the police, although in other situations they are never traced. In all these cases, we should be able to claim for compensation for you.
You may require evidence in the form of police reports, photographs and witness statements to support your claim, so you should call the police as soon as possible after being involved in a hit and run.
We can help you receive the right compensation for all of the expenses you incurred, from lost wages and medical bills to car repairs and alternative transport, while your personal injury compensation should also deal with the pain and distress you suffered in the accident.
