What if the driver of the vehicle is not insured or did not stop?
Even if you have suffered a personal injury in an accident where the driver of the vehicle was not insured, or did not stop to give their details, we may still be able to help you make a claim.  The Motor Insurers' Bureau is an organisation that compensates victims of uninsured/untraced drivers.
What compensation will I receive?
By pursuing a claim for compensation with Coles Miller Claims UK, we will help you to recover:

Compensation for personal injuries

Loss of income, both past and future

Expenses incurred as a result of the accident (e.g. medication, travel expenses etc.)

Damage to your car and personal property

Cost of replacement vehicle hire

Insurance policy excess

What is the MOJ Portal Scheme?
From April 2010, the Ministry of Justice launched a Road Traffic Accident Portal Scheme for Road Traffic Accidents valued between £1,000 and £10,000.  The new scheme provides a swift secure exchange/transfer of information between solicitors and insurers meaning the process of these claims have become a lot quicker.

With tighter deadlines we see a revolutionary shake up of the way claims for motor vehicle accidents are filed and processed reducing the average time frame for these claims to be settled from 12 months to 5 months.
How much will it cost me to make a claim?
Coles Miller Solicitors offer a ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreement, meaning you pay nothing whether you win or lose your claim.
  • If you win, you may have to pay your solicitor a limited success fee/capped at 25% of the compensation for general damages and past losses.
  • If you lose, you pay us and the other side nothing as long as you have been honest.
What Is No Win No Fee?
A ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreement, which can also be known as a conditional fee agreement, gives you security and peace of mind when making a personal injury claim.

If the claim is unsuccessful we will not be paid and the costs of any other party will be paid under an insurance policy which we will take out on your behalf.
How Long Do I Have to Make a Claim?
Under English law, in most cases that time limit is 3 years from the date of the accident giving rise to your injury or the date of knowledge (if later) of the injured person.

These time limits do not apply to children (who can proceed at any time before their 21st birthday) and people who are unable because of mental incapacity of managing their legal affairs.
