    Who would pay my hit and run compensation claim?


    Who would pay my hit and run compensation claim?

    Being involved in a road traffic accident where the other driver flees the scene can be a traumatic experience which can leave you feeling shaken. You could be involved in a hit and run accident as a pedestrian, driver, cyclist, passenger or motorcyclist. The good news is that if you’re injured as a result of a hit and run accident, you could be eligible to claim for compensation.

    What happens next?

    Hit and run accidents always need to be reported to the police, who will then make efforts to trace the missing driver. The outcome of your claim for compensation will depend on whether or not the police can trace the driver of the other vehicle. If the driver can be traced and they have valid motor insurance in place, then your claim will take place as normal to the driver’s insurance company. If they can be traced but they are uninsured, or if the police are unable to trace the driver at all, then you could claim through the Motor Insurer’s Bureau’s (MIB) Uninsured Driver Scheme.

    Claiming for compensation

    The MIB deals with claims if you’ve been injured by an untraced or uninsured driver, but it can be a complex and lengthy process dealing with them directly. Many people prefer to seek specialist legal help and this is where Accident Advice Helpline comes to the rescue.
