I have been injured as a result of a collision with a third party vehicle who then left the scene. Can I claim for vehicle damage and personal injury?
The Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) can deal with your claim under the 2003 Untraced Driver’s Agreement (as amended). The claim must be brought within the usual three year limitation period.
Property Damage Claims
Compensation for property damage is a feature of the Agreement granting compensation for damages with an excess over £300 (Clause 1).
If you wish to claim for property damage (e.g. vehicle damage) you will need:
Personal injury claim
You must report the accident to the police within 14 days. However where there is property damage this is reduced to five days or as soon as reasonably possible.
You will need proof of the fact that you reported your accident to the police.
Exclusions from the Agreement
We would represent you on a Contingency Fee Basis whereby 25% of your damages is deducted as a contribution towards legal costs.
