Uninsured drivers are two words which make many drivers reach the edge of despair. This issue is unwanted by any innocent party in an accident and often leads to drivers not claiming for their accident. The fact is that compensation claims can still be possible if the responsible party is an uninsured driver. With a no win no fee* Highgate Hill claim you may be able to win the compensation you are owed from the guilty party.
Uninsured drivers on the road
Uninsured drivers are on the road for many reasons. One of the most common reasons is that the driver is in a relative’s vehicle. Whether or not they are legally allowed to drive, they are not entitled to drive in that vehicle unless they are insured to do so. In this circumstance the compensation claim from the accident is likely to revert to the individual who owns the vehicle in question.
Another common reason is that the vehicle should not be on the road at all. A no win no fee* Highgate Hill lawyer will tell you that a stolen vehicle may be involved in your accident and won’t want to be caught. This means the driver may move away from the scene at speed, but you can react to catch them.
No win no fee* Highgate Hill claim and stolen vehicles
If you are involved in an accident with a stolen vehicle you may need to act quickly. Depending on your condition after the accident you may not be able to react, but if you are able to, there are things you can do which will help.
Photographs are one of the best pieces of evidence in claims. Having a photograph of the other party makes it very difficult to put up a defence. Even if you just manage to get a snap of the number plate and a mug shot of the driver, these photographs may be enough to strengthen your compensation claim.
Being in an accident with uninsured drivers is not a new problem. Although there may be vehicles being watched by the police or other authorities, some accidents cannot be stopped in time. If you have been in such an accident call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
