If the other road user involved in your accident fails to give their name and address, they are legally required report the accident. If they fail to follow this responsibility under the Road Traffic Act, they have committed an offence.

It is imperative that you take the necessary details from any witnesses to your accident, in the case of the other road user(s) involved leaving the scene without stopping.

In oil & diesel spill cases, the more evidence you have the better…

this means that the bigger the spill, the easier your claim will be. This is because to make a claim like this, you need to be able to prove that the spill came from a single vehicle, rather than a collection of spillage over time. If there’s enough oil or diesel to cause the well-known ‘rainbow effect’, then your chances look stronger. If you have an accident that you think has been caused by an oil spill, then take a photo immediately. It could help you a lot further down the line.
