Car accidents are a frequent occurrence on the roads. With more and more drivers appearing on the road every day the amount of accidents is relative.
Having an accident can cover a range of injuries and circumstances depending on the severity of the accident. Although there are standard practices of swapping insurance details after the accident there can be situations which mean this is not possible. Other than injuries solicitors in Cark in Cartmel also indicate that other circumstances mean that details cannot be obtained.
Uninsured Or Untraceable Drivers
Being uninsured is a phrase good motorist groan at. The misconception immediately appears leaving innocent drivers thinking that they stand no chance in getting any form of compensation for the damages.
It is the same with untraceable drivers. Just because you don’t have their details it doesn’t mean your cause is a lost one. Solicitors in Cark in Cartmel have many resources and abilities in which to gain information using whatever information you are able to provide.
Solicitors In Cark in Cartmel And Absent Drivers
Drivers can be uninsured or untraceable for a reason. Many of those reasons being that they are not supposed to be on the road in the first place. In these situations it is likely that driver will flee from the scene so no details can be retrieved.
Fleeing from the scene of an accident is not always a wise cause of action to take as there will still be eye witnesses at the scene who saw what happened and give statements as to what the vehicle looked like. Eye witness accounts are highly beneficial in these scenarios so if this happens try to obtain the contact details from the witnesses in order to give solicitors in Cark in Cartmel a head start on tracking them down.
Acting quickly is essential after any accident. As long as no one in your vehicle is in danger take some photographs on your mobile quickly to get the license plate of the other vehicle and even shots of the driver to help track them down.
