Motorcyclist from Bolton injured in hit and run awarded compensation

Our client was riding his motorcycle in Bolton when a motorist failed to stop and give way at a junction and collided with our client. The defendant driver did not stop at the scene and fled. As a result of the accident our client suffered injury and loss. Our client did manage to take the registration number of the defendants vehicle and reported the matter to the police.

Our Client’s Injuries: Fractured wrist and soft tissue injury to both shoulders.

How Hayward Baker helped:  One of our Personal Injury Specialists made the claim through the low value Accident insurer’s online portal.

The defendant’s insurer was not known even once we were in receipt of the police report so the claim was aimed at the Motor Insurers bureau for them to investigate. The Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) was founded in the UK in 1946 as a private company limited by guarantee and is the mechanism in the UK through which compensation is provided for victims of accidents caused by uninsured and untraced drivers, which is funded by an estimated £30 a year from every insured driver’s premiums.

The Valuation:

Hayward Baker claimed for our client’s travel expenses to and from medical appointments and a nominal amount for postage and phone calls.

Once all sufficient medical evidence was given and full details of all of our client’s losses due to the accident were provided, Hayward Baker negotiated a settlement.


Our client’s claim was finally settled in full for just over £4,300.00
