Thankfully, your compensation will reflect the full nature and extent of your injuries and suffering to ensure you receive a fair amount of compensation. To get started on your claim, you just need to give us a call on 0800 0511 511. When we speak with you, our friendly advisers will take a few details about how you were hit, the injuries you have suffered and the impact on your life.
They will then help you access free specialist legal advice from experienced injury lawyers, who will give you a clear picture of how your claim can then proceed.
If the driver is known (or eventually traced) and it turns out they were not insured, you need not worry because you can still make a claim. The law recognises that pedestrians who are injured in such circumstances should not be penalised for criminal behaviour such as driving without insurance or failing to stop at the scene of an accident.
So, you can still make an injury claim and this will be made to an organisation called the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) (your solicitor will be able to do this for you). However, it is an MIB requirement that the police have been informed of the accident, so if you are the victim of a ‘hit and run’, you must notify the police as soon as you can to get it on record.
It is important to get in touch with our advisors now while the accident is fresh in your mind. The sooner you call us, the quicker we can partner you with the right specialist lawyer and your claim going.
You can count on our support from the outset. Our aim is to make the compensation process simple and straightforward for you, removing the stress as much as we can.
