Commonly asked questions about pedestrian accident claims

A hit and run accident is where a pedestrian or cyclist, or the driver of another vehicle has been hit by another driver of a vehicle, who then drives away without stopping, and without giving their details to the injured party. If you have been involved in a hit and run incident, then you are still eligible to claim compensation  – Your Stacks lawyer will advise you on the best course of action, and may file a claim under the Nominal Defendant scheme. The same applies if the driver was driving an uninsured vehicle.
