At the scene of a road traffic accident, the first help that you should get is medical help. This applies if you are a driver, passenger or pedestrian. It is also true if you are a motorcyclist or if you were on a bicycle at the time of the accident. If you are badly hurt, another person will probably call for an ambulance on your behalf.
However, if the accident was not your own fault, there is other help that you need as well. You need help to start a personal injury claim. You will need to collect some evidence at the scene to use in your claim – then we here at Accident Advice Helpline can assist you with the legal process. You will need to provide us with as much information as you can about what happened.
Some road traffic accidents are made even more complicated when the driver at fault was not insured. It is important that you know how to get help after an accident with an uninsured driver.
Getting legal help after an accident caused by an uninsured driver
Sadly, there are thousands of uninsured drivers on our roads and some of them end up causing accidents. It is still very important to make a note of the driver’s contact details and registration number if they have not fled the scene. It is an offence to drive without insurance and so you should also call the police. They will help to investigate the scene of the accident and work out who was to blame. They may take photographs and make measurements. You can also take photographs if it is safe for you to do so. You can use the findings of their investigation as part of your claim.
You then need to find a good personal injury lawyer with experience of handing claims involving uninsured drivers. You will be making a claim with the Motor Insurers’ Bureau. Here at Accident Advice Helpline we are highly experienced in this sort of claim.
