We understand that getting hit by an uninsured driver is stressful. The good news is, you still have a right to claim, regardless of whether they are insured. With the help of a solicitor, you can claim through the Motor Insurance Bureau (MIB).
The MIB is a scheme set up to help compensate victims of uninsured motorists and is funded by every motor insurer in the UK. The MIB has created an ‘Uninsured Drivers’ Agreement’ to help identify whether or not the driver responsible was insured. Your solicitor will be able to advise you about your case and whether it meets the agreement’s conditions.
For the MIB to be able to deal with your personal injury claim, you’ll need to have reported the incident to the police within 14 days. Like all personal injury claims, the claim must be made within three years from the date of the accident.
Accidents and collisions can be stressful enough on their own, never mind the additional financial worries they can cause. Whether you’ve been injured as a result of an uninsured driver or had possessions damaged, we don’t believe you should have to foot the bill for someone else’s mistakes.
We can match you to solicitors who have extensive experience in dealing with claims for people who have been hit by an uninsured driver. They’ll make sure you understand what’s happening throughout the process and let you know what to expect when dealing with the MIB.
