Not all claims for a car accident are plain sailing. After any accident the standard procedure is that both parties exchange insurance details and then go from there. However there are many scenarios in which this is not possible.
The words uninsured driver are the 2 words that make any driver groan. However just because that driver is uninsured doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t make a claim for compensation with solicitors in Wheathampstead.
Ways to deal with uninsured drivers
The best thing to do with any uninsured driver is to treat them in the same way you would to any other driver. There are many reasons why a driver may be uninsured so it is best to treat them in no different manner and act quickly.
Scenarios have been known where other drivers flee quickly from the scene so first off you need to get some photographs. Subtly if you can it is advisable to get a photograph of the driver themselves and the number plate in case they do decide to flee the scene.
By having these photographs your solicitors in Wheathampstead can still track down the driver even if they provide you with false information.
