In a word, yes. The claim would be made against the Nominal Defendant Scheme that covers these types of accidents in ACT.

Where a vehicle is uninsured, or unidentified the injured person can make a claim through the Nominal Defendant, meaning they don’t go without the treatment or compensation they need.
However these claims are more complicated and much shorter time limits apply to bring your case forward.
You have just three months from the date of accident to start your claim so you should seek legal advice as soon as possible to protect your rights.
