Hit and Run Compensation for Rugby Player in Wales

Posted on August 27, 2019 by SheldonDavidsonSolicitors


Over £20,000

SDS acted for a young Welsh amateur rugby player who was hit by a “hit and run” car when walking back from a night out with his friends in Cardiff.

The client sustained unsightly scarring to his back when struck by the car, but fortunately due to his fitness from playing rugby made a speedy and full recovery from his back injury sustained in the collision.

The Insurers for the driver of the car initially refused to deal with the claim, as they claimed their insurance on the car had been cancelled and that the driver had returned his motor insurance certificate to them.

SDS met with the South Wales Police to discuss their involvement and it emerged that the driver had not returned his insurance certificate as claimed by his insurers, as the South Wales Police had retained it in relation to the prosecution of the other driver (which incidentally resulted in a lengthy driving ban and prison sentence).

When it was pointed out to the insurers of the hit and run driver that their customer could not have returned the insurance certificate, as the Police had it, they agreed to deal with the claim, resulting in an award for the client of over £20,000.00.
