“Hit and runs” are when someone has been injured on the road and the vehicle that caused the injury cannot be identified.

The fact that the vehicle that caused the injury cannot be identified does not mean that the injured person cannot make a hit and run accident claim for legal compensation.

Motor accident compensation scheme

Under the motor accident compensation scheme, a person injured in a hit and run is entitled to receive compensation for their injuries and to have their claim for compensation dealt with by the Nominal Defendant.

If you have been injured in a hit and run, there are a number of additional steps that you have to take to ensure that you receive your hit and run accident compensation entitlements.

This includes showing the Nominal Defendant that you have made “due search and inquiry” to identify the vehicle that caused the accident.

Process

Getting the most from your claim

At Gerard Malouf and Partners, we understand the requirements for making a hit and run car accident claim against the Nominal Defendant, including the evidence that needs to be provided to show that you have made “due search and inquiry” to identify the vehicle that caused the accident.

This can include placing advertisements in local newspapers, asking any witnesses who saw the accident to come forward, as well as obtaining statements from people, who were at the scene of the accident and talking to the police officers in charge of the investigation.

Each hit and run accident lawyer of ours has been involved in a large number of successful claims for hit and run accidents against the Nominal Defendant where our clients have received compensation for some, or all, of the following:

  • Reimbursement of the hospital, medical and rehabilitation expenses
  • Compensation for future medical expenses in relation to injuries sustained in the accident
  • Compensation for past economic loss such as loss of wages while recovering from the accident
  • Compensation for future economic loss where the working life is reduced as a result of the injuries
  • Lump-sum compensation if there is a permanent impairment as a result of the injuries
  • The lump-sum compensation for pain and suffering
    Payment of legal costs in relation to the claim for compensation
