If you have been involved in a road traffic accident and you have been injured you may be eligible for compensation. Victims of road traffic accidents can include:
- Passengers in cars, buses or coaches
Injuries sustained from road traffic accidents can vary from minor bruising to more serious spinal injuries or paralysis. No matter what injury you sustain Josiah Hincks personal injury department will be able to offer sympathetic, honest and confidential advice and help you obtain the compensation you are entitled to.
Whilst it is illegal to drive a motor vehicle without appropriate insurance, it is a sad fact that there are many individuals who take it upon themselves to put not only their own but other people’s lives at risk by driving without insurance. If you are injured in a road traffic accident where either the driver was not insured to drive the vehicle or indeed if the vehicle leaves the scene and you do not have any information regarding the driver, you may still be able to pursue a claim via the Motor Insurers Bureau Uninsured or Untraced Drivers scheme. Our specialist lawyers will be able to guide you through this process, ensuring that you receive the compensation to which are you entitled. Our advice would be to immediately report the incident to the police, ensuring that you give them as much information as possible and that you are provided with a crime reference number.
