The driver of a car has fled the scene of a RTA which left a motorcyclist seriously injured, leading police to appeal for information regarding the driver’s identity and location, accident claim experts say.
According to personal injury claims documents, the incident occurred on the night of 20 January at approximately 9pm when a motorcycle and a silver car were involved in a collision in Chigwell on the A113 Abridge Road near the Pudding Lane junction. The 51 year old motorcycle rider was rushed to Whipps Cross Hospital in Leytonstone. The Hackney, east London man is listed as in a stable condition as the serious leg injuries he sustained in the accident are treated.
While the identity of the hit-and-run driver is a mystery, and therefore the insurer that covers his vehicle is not known, this will not preclude the injured man from seeking damages. The Motor Insurers’ Bureau, an organisation funded by the insurance industry, is available to provide compensation to victims struck and injured by unknown or uninsured vehicles.
A spokesman for the Essex Police commented on the incident, remarking that the only known information regarding the vehicle that struck the motorcyclist is that it is believed to be coloured silver. The front headlight and driver’s door of the vehicle will have fresh damage as well, the spokesman added, as he appealed for anyone with any knowledge of the location of the car to contact the Essex Police as soon as possible.
Individuals with information related to the car crash are welcome to place an anonymous call to Crimestoppers at 0800 555 111, or to get into contact with Chigwell Road Policing Unit on 101.
