About claims involving untraced drivers
Being involved in a road traffic accident can be devastating, but perhaps especially so if the driver responsible left the scene.
A hit and run accident can leave you with many serious injuries, and potentially left to foot the bill if the driver that caused it fled afterwards. It can be a frightening experience, and many motorists are unsure of the next steps to take in such an eventuality. It’s important firstly to always report an accident of this nature.
The police report can help confirm that another driver caused an accident and then fled, something that can prove important later on in your bid for compensation. You should also collect as much information as possible, such as doctor’s notes and photographs, that can act as supporting evidence in your claim.
If you want to make a claim for an accident involving a hit and run driver, contact us here at Accident Advice Helpline.

How can I receive compensation from a hit and run driver?
The police will work to attempt to trace the driver. Even if they are not successful, it is still possible to receive a settlement. Rather than attempt to go this route alone, our experienced Dundee law firm can help you make a claim. With over 16 years of experience behind us, we know how to put together a strong case that ensures you get the best possible settlement.
If you have been involved in a hit and run accident, you may find yourself having to pay for things like medical treatment or other expenses out of pocket, which shouldn’t be the case. If you weren’t to blame, make sure you are not made to pay with the help of Accident Advice Helpline.
