SAFEGUARDING THE RIGHTS OF CHILDREN AND THE MENTALLY HANDICAPPED

Every year hundreds of children and mentally handicapped victims are injured by hit and run drivers on our roads. Unfortunately their compensatory entitlement is jeopardized by the Department for Transport’s outsourcing arrangement with the Motor Insurers Bureau under the Untraced Drivers Agreement 2003.


Those wonderful people at the New Law Journal have published my detailed critique of the current regime. The article considers the relevant case law and calls for urgent reform to improve the compensatory safeguards for children and the mentally handicapped under the 2003 Agreement.
