    Have you been a victim of a ‘hit and run?’

    If you need an accident lawyer in Birchington, then here at Accident Advice Helpline, we help thousands of people to claim compensation for their injuries, both physical and emotional, after hit and run accidents.

    What is a hit and run?

    A hit and run is when the driver of a vehicle makes contact with another, but unlike other people, does not hang around to swap insurance details. They may realise that they are in the wrong but they swiftly leave the scene unnoticed in the commotion.

    Unfortunately, on occasions, this driver cannot be traced. But how can you make a compensation claim if you don’t know who to claim against? With the expert help and knowledge of your specialist injury lawyer you can lodge your compensation claim with the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB), but you may find that the driver is found and this won’t be necessary.

    Victims of hit and run accidents can be:

    • Pedestrians hit by a vehicle whilst crossing the road or walking on the pavement;
    • Cyclists knocked from their bike at a junction when the driver did not stop;
    • Motorbikes riders – drivers and passengers – hit by a car, with the driver of the vehicle leaving the scene of the accident; and
    • The driver and passengers in a car hit by another vehicle.

    There are many instances of hit and run accidents. Thankfully, many people only receive short term or minor injuries, but on occasions some are left with devastating injuries.
