Unfortunately, we regularly handle cases in which drivers have hit a pedestrian but then left the scene, or maybe the other driver simply wasn’t insured.
If this has happened to you, we can still help you claim compensation under the Motor Insurance Bureau.
This organisation provides compensation payouts when someone has been injured in a road traffic accident when the other driver was either uninsured or untraced.
