The words uninsured driver hit many negative tones as soon as they are spoken. Having an accident with a driver who shouldn’t legally be on the road can sound like a headache and there is that gut feeling that you are going to have to pay out all of the costs with no compensation at all.
The truth is that a solicitor in Monument can still process a case on your behalf even though the individual is uninsured.
Uninsured Drivers And A Solicitor In Monument
Solicitors have many resources at their fingertips which can help in building a case against an uninsured party. Being able to work alongside the police and other emergency services your solicitor in Monument can access information which will provide useful in your claim.
In many cases drivers are uninsured for a reason. Whether it is because they have previously been involved with the police or they have a vehicle which is not roadworthy, the fact they are uninsured does not prevent you from making a claim for compensation with your solicitor in Monument.
What To Do About Uninsured Drivers
After having an accident on the road the standard practice is to first of all make sure that yourself and your passengers are out of danger. The usual occurrence following any accident is that both parties exchange insurance details.
In a scenario involving a party which does not have any details to give it is wise to collect their contact details so they can be contacted at a later date.
A harsh reality is that there is a good chance that you may be given false information so that they cannot be tracked. A measure to be taken as a precaution of this happening is that whilst taking photographs of the scene of the accident and damage to the vehicles try to get a photograph or two with the other party in the frame. By subtly getting their mugshots you are giving your solicitor and the police a chance to trace them.
