Go to http://www.askmid.com and check if they are insured?

Get back in touch with the police and insurance and ask them what progress has been made on identifying the other driver. They won't give out the details to you, but they should be able to indicate what's going on and what steps you can be taking.

Good luck-hope you weren't too badly hurt.

What goes around comes around, as they say...

You really need a witness as it will be your word against another.

The police can and do give tp details, the info commissioners office has said as much, as a police officer I always give the tp details

Keep at them, day and night if you must. This is the best way to get a result. If they can't trace the driver I think there is a victim fund that should pay out. Have you got a crime number and have you tried citizens advice ?

insurers act very slowly and so do the police for non urgent matters.

give the insurer 30 days then contact them again. you can also consider calling these companies that are always cold calling asking if you have had an accident and want compensation.

You are a credit to your profession.

Are you fully comprehensive? If so then speak to your insurance about a hire vehicle, as its not your fault other party will be liable to costs. Also ring your insurance company and ask why they are not keeping you up to date as to the claim, and do not let them fob you off. Who is your insurance company.

Yes. I am fully comp the insurance company wrote to dvla to retrive the detail of third party dvla have. Now declined to provide detail this is what my insurance company are saying and its admiral. But they have confirmed that the third part are insured and with axa. Am calling the police nearly every day and yes they returned my call today and said we can't tell u anything as yet they haveing got any update they have. Written to dvla but it takes 28 working days. I was hurt quiet a bit third week off work. Need urgent access to veichle due to my daugther being ill and being on liver transplant list. So am kind of stuck. Thank you everyone for all your help.

Get yourself a decent lawyer- One who is APIL credited.
If no insurance the Motor Insurance Bureau will cover.
As already stated witnesses will be crucial.
Get as much detail from the accident down on paper- these cases can take years to go to court. Keep a note of all your expenses. Keep a note of all your injuries and treatment. Photographic proof is useful of bruising etc.
Do you have physio cover with your insurance?
if you are in Scotland send me a private message.

isn't this a hit and run case ? surely the dvla would release details to the police. its up to the owner of the vehicle in hand to know its where about at time of accident.
the norm would be for the insurance company to write to the third party insurers and wait for a response which is a slow process. the third party insurers then write to the client regarding the claim and wait on the insurer to send a response. its a bit of a slow process regarding the insurance side of things. but i would be chasing the police on arresting the person in hand and lodging a complaint.

How awful for you, there are some horrible people in this world its one thing to scratch someone's car and drive off but to hit them and drive off not knowing how hurt they are is shocking. I'm sorry i can't offer much advice i do know insurance companies go snail pace slow! Good luck i hope you feel better and get it sorted!

RTA claim? This way the police will identify the insurer and hopefully you'll get justice. I'm sure the person will regret his/her actions once a letter drops through the letterbox from a Solicitor.

This is why so many people are buying and fitting those screencams to their car windscreens . It may not capture the whole accident but it may capture number plates of close vehicles who may be good witnesses .
Go out and buy them people , you just never know when you will need one .

Sorry to hear about your accident , hope it gets sorted soon.

The police should be investigating this, they do not need information from the DVLA, they will have all that is needed on the PNC, they won't give it to you though unless there are proceedings of some sort, the insurance company will also have access to these details, so I don't know what web they are spinning.
#17
I would have thought the police would have treated this as hit and run too!
Driver probably drunk.
I'm **** off just reading about how you've been treated
check your insurance to see if you have legal aid and tell them of your problem
