Having an accident on the road can be a horrific experience to go through. Though the outcome in regards to injuries can vary on a large scale the experience can still give you a nasty shock. If you’re involved in an accident that is not your fault you could be entitled to some compensation.
Going through the standard procedure of swapping insurance details at the side of the road is easy but what if it turns out that driver is uninsured?
On discovery that the other party is uninsured its essential that you stay calm. Do not panic because you still have a chance of making an Abertridwr no-win, no-fee* accident claim. Just because they are uninsured does not mean that cannot make a claim.
Uninsured drivers are on the road for a number of reasons. It could be that the vehicle is not roadworthy or it is stolen. Whichever reason it is you need to be smart and work fast to catch them in case they try to flee from the scene quickly.
Uninsured drivers and an Abertridwr no-win, no-fee* accident
Making a claim against false details or credentials is not unheard of. For uninsured drivers to remain undetected they give out false names and details to cover their trail. However there are ways of tracking them down.
At the scene of the accident is the best time to catch them. At any accident it is normal to take photographs so take this opportunity to get some photographs of the damages to both vehicles. In your photographs try to be subtle in getting a picture of the number plate and of the driver of the vehicle. By having their mug shot there is a good chance of them being located fairly quickly.
Making an Abertridwr no-win, no-fee* accident claim against an uninsured driver is not a lost cause. If you find yourself in this situation just carry on as usual and don’t get frustrated that you won’t get anything out of them. By following the normal procedure you will stand a good chance at finding the other driver and hence get your claim under way.
