Hi.

Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.

Do you have the rider's details?

No he left the accident before the police got there

Expert:  Jo C. replied 3 years ago.
Thanks.

Sorry if I'm missing the point but who were you hoping to claim from?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

A claim for compensation for personal injury

Claim for compensation for personal injury

Expert:  Jo C. replied 3 years ago.
Yes, but from whom?

There is only person potentially liable and that is the cyclist. You do not know who he is and so he cannot be identified.

Cyclists do not have to have insurance in the UK and so the MIB cannot assist.

The police are plainly not responsible.

I'm sorry if this is bad news but you need to identify the cyclist to bring a claim.

Can I clarify anything for you?
