Hit and Run Bicycle Accidents
If you are a victim of a hit and run driver when Cycling then provided you act quickly you can still Claim Compensation. We run through here what you need to know if you find yourself in this awful situation through no fault of your own.
They Don’t Care about You
Sadly hit and run bicycle accidents where the offending driver fails to stop following the accident are not at all unusual.
It may mean that the rogue driver has no valid policy of insurance or may even be driving a stolen vehicle.
More unusually in some hit and run bicycle accidents the driver concerned may be oblivious that an accident has even occurred but it’s probably fair to say that the majority of hit and run bicycle accidents occur when the motorist realises their error and then speeds away in an effort to avoid being caught
There are significant numbers of these types of claims where the Police are unable to trace the motorist concerned.
Thankfully this does not mean there is no remedy for the injured cyclist (or indeed any other road traffic accident victim).
Hit and Run Bicycle Accidents – What’s the Solution for You
There is an organisation known as the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB) which will compensate the victim provided certain conditions are met. You need to know though that:
- There are very very strict time limits in terms of reporting the accident to the Police and also in relation to submitting the application to the MIB.
- If you fall foul of the rules then unfortunately the MIB will refuse to deal with your cycling accident claim with no “ifs or buts!”
- It’s clearly important that you obtain the right advice from a specialist solicitor in this respect so that your interests can be fully protected.
If you have been involved in a Cycling “Hit and Run” accident then we would be happy to hear from you so we can help bring your cycling accident claim under the MIB Untraced Scheme.
Please remember it is so important that the MIB requirements are met within the relevant strict timescales so please do not leave it to chance and get in touch straight away.
