If you suffer a whiplash injury in Chatteris, and the other driver that drove into you “does a runner”, all is not lost – well at least not when you appoint Accident Advice Helpline that is.
Dealing with cases of hit and run whiplash
If you’ve been injured by a “hit and run” driver it will of course complicate any claim for compensation that you may be considering raising. But here at Accident Advice Helpline we’ve successfully handled a number of cases that involve either uninsured or unidentified drivers, whereby they fled the scene. In all such cases we deal with the Motor Insurer’s Bureau, a body that was founded back in 1946; and it’s through this body that all claims for uninsured motoring injuries are processed.
The burden of proof relating to a hit and run whiplash injury in Chatteris
Wherever anyone is pursuing a claim for compensation, whether it’s for whiplash injury in Chatteris, or an injury sustained in the workplace, having proof to back up any claim is always an advantage.
If we’re talking about an injury that is sustained in the workplace, the injury victim needs to be able to prove that the blame for the incident, or the circumstances that brought about the injury, are attributable to the employer. In the case of whiplash, where the other driver has absconded, the way of proving that the blame is attributable to a third party, is by taking photographs of the damage done to your vehicle, taking a photograph of the fleeing vehicle, if you’re fast enough; and checking around for witnesses, and if you find any, by making a note of their names and contact details.
The necessity of gaining medical proof of whiplash injury
Claiming compensation for whiplash injuries is quite “trendy” at the moment. This is not said when any flippancy, but relates to the fact that there are many fraudulent claims being raised. It’s therefore important (especially when we’re talking about a hit and run whiplash injury incident) that you must have conclusive medical proof that you have indeed suffered a whiplash injury in Chatteris.
