UK hit by a car. Police gave my details..

I was hit by a car and I am being pursued by the insurance company to pay for damages to the car.
The only way that they could've got my details is from the police giving the driver my details. Is this allowed?? Doesn't seem correct to me. Phone Post 3.0

If it was your fault, why would they not give the details. In fact it's a matter of public record probably. UK, US, EU whatever.

Most likely all of your info was on the police report which is available at the police station for like 2 bucks a couple days after the incident Phone Post 3.0
