Being involved in a road traffic accident can be very stressful and upsetting, but when you are struck by a van as a cyclist only for the driver to flee the scene it can have a terrible effect on the victim.

We acted for Miss B who was cycling on a road with parked cars on either side. She proceeded very carefully as there was a large van coming, but as the van passed her the driver came too close and the mirror of the van collided with her causing her to fall from her bicycle and suffer injuries including a fractured toe.

The driver failed to stop and Miss B was concerned that she would be denied justice, but at MJV & Co we have many years of experience in handling claims against the Motor Insurers Bureau who deal with such claims under their uninsured drivers’ scheme. The scheme has a variety of rules and requirements that, if breached, entitle the MIB to reject them and deny Claimants compensation.

We were able to recover personal injury compensation and all her loses such as lost earnings and taxi fares while she was unable to ride her bicycle.
