If you are involved in a road traffic accident and the driver of the other vehicle fails to stop, you will still be able to make a claim for compensation if you have suffered any personal injuries.
The Motor Insurers’ Bureau untraced drivers’ agreement offers protection to victims of uninsured or untraced drivers to help them to claim for compensation. This is what happened when our expert personal injury solicitors were recently able to secure compensation for personal injury for the victim of a hit and run.
The 35-year-old groundworker was driving his car when another vehicle collided with him head on. Instead of stopping to check if he was injured and to exchange insurance details, the driver of the other car sped off from the scene of the accident. The accident left the groundworker with severe ongoing pain in his neck and elbow.
When he came to Bartletts expert personal injury solicitors in Wrexham he had been suffering from pain to the neck and elbow for over two years, despite receiving a course of physiotherapy. The pain had been making it difficult to work so the self-employed groundworker had been forced to hire assistance.
Our solicitors successfully made a claim through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau untraced drivers’ agreement for compensation for personal injury, the cost of care and assistance, the cost of hiring assistance at work and travelling expenses for journeys to and from physiotherapy and medical appointments.
