Hit and Run, Uninsured or Stolen Vehicle Claims Manchester and Lancashire

The consequences of a road traffic accident can be traumatic enough. But if the person at fault for the accident drives away without providing you with any details or it turns out that they are not insured or the vehicle they were driving was stolen, the whole incident can become even more distressing.

At Curtis Law Solicitors, our expert Road Traffic Accident Solicitors provide legal representation to those who have suffered as result of accidents involving hit and runs, uninsured or stolen vehicles.

If you are unfortunate enough to be injured by a hit and run, uninsured or untraced motorist either as a driver, passenger, cyclist, motorcyclist or pedestrian you could be entitled to compensation. With one of the most experienced Road Traffic Accident departments in the North West of England, we can make sure you’re taken care of every step of the way. 

Many people assume that they are unable to make a claim but thankfully, that is not the case. You can pursue a claim for compensation but the way in which you make your accident compensation claim may be slightly different than normal.

Your claim will be dealt with by the Motor Insurer’s Bureau (MIB), a government organisation which handles claims for innocent members of the public who have been injured by a hit and run, uninsured or untraced motorist.

At Curtis Law Solicitors we are here to make your claim for compensation run as smoothly as possible and deal with the MIB on your behalf.

Conditional Fee/Damages Based Agreements

We undertake risk assessments on all such matters and aim to complete the same within 24 hours of receipt of instructions on straightforward matters, or 72 hours of receipt of substantial papers, if applicable. The length of time taken on the risk assessment will vary according to the instructions and papers but we would expect to spend in the region of 30 minutes on straightforward matters. A more accurate timeframe can be given on a  case by case basis if required. We do not charge for the initial risk assessment.

If a matter is accepted it would, as a rule of thumb, be subject to a 25% Success Fee and After the Event Insurance (ATE) Premium deduction. The level of Success Fee and ATE Premium will vary depending on the nature and complexity of the case and the exact Success Fee as a percentage of damages and ATE Premium will be confirmed to you before you sign any retainer with us.

Under the terms of a Conditional Fee/Damages Based Agreement, you would ordinarily only have to pay the Success Fee and ATE Premium yourself. If however, you breach the agreement you would then become responsible for our full costs.
