If you were hit by a vehicle who drove away or a driver who told you they weren’t insured what would you do?
There is a common misconception that to be able to claim for an accident on the road you must have someone’s full details and that person must be insured.
In actual fact that is not the case.
The Motor Insurers Bureau offer compensation for those people hit by an uninsured or untraced driver to make sure you are not out of pocket and are properly compensated for your loss after an accident that was not your fault.
Don’t worry these claims are not funded by the tax payer but in actual fact by all motor insurers who must contribute by law to the fund.
How can this help you?
Well firstly if you have been injured you can claim for that much needed treatment and medication to get yourself back to full health. You can claim back your hefty insurance excess or if you haven’t been able repair your vehicle you could even claim back the full cost of repair. Any lost earnings you have suffered due to time off work can also be included in your claim. And finally you can claim for the pain and inconvenience you have suffered due to the careless actions of someone else.
Some top tips to make sure you have the best chance of success
- Make sure you report the accident to the police – whatever information you have could help to catch the uninsured or untraced driver and stop them from doing the same to someone else!
- If you are injured seek medical attention – either your GP or Hospital will be able to help to advise on how best to cope with the ongoing pain
- Keep evidence of your losses – any receipts for painkillers, vehicle damage, excess, loss of earnings etc will help to ensure you get back all the money you have lost
