If you knew tomorrow morning you would wake up as usual, have breakfast and walk out of the door and into an accident, you would no doubt stay in bed and make no attempt to leave the house until a new day dawns. Sadly, none of us can receive a tip off which will alert us to the date and time that an accident will happen. When the inevitable does occur those responsible for such an accident may behave irrationally and become so terrified that they leave the scene in a mad rush. Whilst the reaction to want to get away is natural, this could be the worst mistake that they make. If you were knocked down by someone who refused to remain at the scene, you should seek the help of a solicitor as soon as possible with a view to making a claim for compensation.
