Just imagine how you would feel if the driver who had just caused your motor accident decided not to stop at the scene. As well as being badly shaken by the whole experience you would feel pretty angry and quite rightly so. This is something that happens every day on our roads and dealing with the aftermath can be very difficult indeed.
Why does this happen?
It would be great if everyone on the roads were as honest as most of us, but sadly this just isn’t the case. There are scores of uninsured drivers out there plus many who do not have the correct documents to make their vehicle legal. Perhaps the person who caused your accident was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Whatever their reason, they probably realised that if they stopped, they would be in serious trouble. They are careless individuals who make life that much more difficult for the likes of you and me.
How we can help
At Accident Advice Helpline, we know all about this type of scenario and will always do our best to help law abiding motorists in the UK. Thankfully we have a process in place that may help you to claim for untraced driver injury compensation. So all is not lost, but in order to maximise your chances of making a successful claim, you will need to follow certain procedures correctly.
What to do next
To make it possible for your claim to be a success, you really need to gather as much evidence as you possibly can. Witnesses are vital, although you may have not seen any at the time, revisit the scene of the accident and knock on a few doors if you have to. Even a few posters may jog some memories.
Take some photos of the accident damage to your car and any surrounding areas that may have been affected. To achieve a successful claim, you need to have as much evidence as you can.
