Hit and Run

"Hit and run" refers to a situation in which a driver is involved in a collision with another vehicle, a pedestrian, or a cyclist and then leaves the scene without stopping to provide their details, offer assistance or notify the police.

This is a criminal offence and can result in severe penalties for the driver, including fines and even imprisonment.

If you have been injured in a hit and run incident and the driver is not identified or located, you (the claimant) may still be able to make a claim for compensation through the Motor Insurers' Bureau (MIB).

The MIB is a not-for-profit organization that was established to compensate victims of accidents caused by uninsured and untraced drivers.
