Compensation claims for a hit and run accident with an uninsured driver

If you have been involved in a road accident with an uninsured driver who then fails to stop and without helping, then you could be eligible to make a claim against them for compensation. If this has affected you then you should report the incident within five days of its occurrence so they can attempt to trace the other driver. In order to make a successful claim for compensation where the other driver is uninsured, it is vital that you gather as much details as possible with regards to the accident.

If possible, you should consider noting down useful information such as their name and address, the vehicle’s model and registration number, details of vehicle damage and the details of any witnesses at the scene. All of this information will help your case in a court of law and further increase your chances of success.

What scenarios might I be eligible to make a claim?

When it comes to making a successful claim for compensation it is important to understand what instances you may be eligible following a hit and run with an uninsured driver. Some common examples of this may include:

·         Accidents which were caused by excessive speeding

·         Claims if you were the driver or passenger in a vehicle that was hit by a driver who then fled the scene

·         Claims if you were a pedestrian who was knocked down by a hit and run driver

·         Claims if you were on a bicycle or motorbike that was involved in a hit and run accident

·         Claims if they have failed to stop and help you.

Who could I be eligible to make a claim against?

In general, if you believe that you have been a victim of a hit and run accident then you would most likely make a claim against the driver of the other vehicle. Because of the severity and complexity of a case such as this, you could be entitled to a large settlement because you could be left with life-altering injuries. Being involved in a hit and run accident can be one of the most traumatic and severe experiences you could encounter while on the road, so whether you are a pedestrian or a motorist, a hit and run can be just as severe and if you believe that this has affected you then you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence.
