If you or a loved one is involved in an accident with an uninsured or untraced driver, you may be concerned about the complexity of making a claim. Our experience in claims against uninsured or untraced (hit and run) drivers allows us to assist you in every step of your claim for compensation and ensure your claim will run smoothly all the way to receiving your compensation.
Road Traffic Accident Compensation Against Uninsured Drivers
In this area of the law we work with injured Road Traffic Accident victims in order to secure their fair compensation against the Motor Insurers’ Fund (MIF). Cyprus motorists are required to obtain adequate motor insurance to legally drive a vehicle on our roads. There are however road users in Cyprus that choose to drive without insurance. If you are hit by an uninsured driver there is no insurance company to claim compensation against for damage to your vehicle or personal injury. This does not mean that you are unable to recover your losses. We ensure that our clients’ cases against uninsured drivers are enforced against the MIF.
Road Traffic Accident Compensation Against Untraced Drivers (hit and run cases).
This is a worldwide phenomenon, and unfortunately it happens in Cyprus as well. Hit and run incidents take place every year on Cyprus’s roads. If you are hit by an untraced driver there is no insurance company to provide compensation for your losses. This does not mean that you are unable to make a claim. Provided that you meet the criteria we can recover your compensation for your personal injuries and financial losses and ensure that you will be compensated for your losses and injuries.
What to Do if you are Hit by an Uninsured Driver or a Driver that Cannot be Identified
If you are involved in a road traffic accident with an uninsured or untraced driver, it is essential that you contact the police as soon as possible. If you do not inform the police it may not be possible to make an uninsured or untraced driver claim through the Motor Insurers’ Fund (MIF). It may also help if you make a note of any witnesses and take photos of the scene as evidence. The police must ensure that your claim will investigated properly. It is very important at an early stage to appoint an experienced Road Traffic Accident lawyer that has successfully dealt with such cases in the past to ensure everything runs smoothly in your case.
