Road Accident Claims Merseyside

A hit and run accident occurs when someone hits your vehicle and flees the scene. An increasing number of drivers simply fail to stop after involvement in an accident leaving the scene before they can be traced. Some drivers give false particulars especially if they are driving a stolen vehicle. Road Traffic Act 1988 section 170, requires a driver to stop when involved in a road accident resulting in injury to someone else or damage to his or her vehicle. The driver must also give details of his or her address and vehicle registration number if requested on reasonable grounds otherwise he or she should report the accident to the police. Pursuing a civil claim against a hit and run or untraced driver is not possible because there is no identifiable defendant. Fortunately it is possible to apply for compensation from the Motor Insurers’ Bureau under the Untraced Driver's Agreement.

After being struck by a hit and run driver, it is best to remain in control and try to immediately record as much information as you can about the incident and contact the police. Also if you have enough information that can be used to eventually identify the guilty party you can gain that person's car insurance information via the police or your insurer. You need to contact the carrier and file a claim with them and attempt to collect money for your expenses. Even if you can't recall any of these bits of information at least write down the location and time of the accident and as many other details about the sequence of events as you can. If the police do not manage to trace the driver responsible for your accident at all then your only option may be to approach the MIB directly to see if they can help you. It is very important to report any hit and run or untraced driver’s accident to the police within 24 hours from the time of accident as failure to do so can cause difficulties in making a claim through Motor Insurer’s Bureau.
