Untraced Driver Case Study – £17,000 in Compensation
Our client was walking her dog along a country road, when a driver hit her from behind at speed.
The collision knocked our client to the ground and she suffered a fractured left shoulder, numerous tissue injuries, a head injury, and cuts/bruises.
Despicably, the driver never stopped and, unfortunately, the police were unable to trace them. Our client was due to go on holiday within days of the accident happening. To add insult to injury the accident spoilt her holiday.
Despite the driver being untraced, we advised our client that she could still claim compensation. Our team helped our client to submit her claim to the Motor Insurers Bureau, who compensate victims of uninsured and untraced drivers. We also obtained medical evidence, and calculated the financial losses our client had suffered.
We were very pleased to recover £12,000 for our client’s injuries and over £5,000 for out of pocket expenses.
If an untraced driver or an uninsured driver has hit you, you may still be able to make a claim for compensation. Our experienced solicitors would be happy to assist you.
