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

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, do not hang around to swap insurance details. They may realise that they are in the wrong and, if the accident looks serious, they swiftly leave the scene – in the commotion, they can slip away unnoticed.
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 you specialist injury lawyer in Birchington, 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.
