In some cases, drivers are uninsured or are unable to be traced. If you have suffered an injury as a result of their actions then you may still be able to claim compensation against the driver personally or against the Motor Insurance Bureau (MIB). The Motor Insurance Bureau provides a facility for victims of accidents caused by uninsured and untraced drivers to claim compensation and it is funded annually from every insured driver's premiums.

The MIB must be able to establish that you are entitled to claim compensation before they can assist you. As such, they will gather evidence, establish liability, speak with witnesses and capture the medical facts. Once the MIB has decided that you should be compensated, the claim will move forward to consider the amount you should receive.

If you have been involved in a vehicle or car accident that has led to an injury with an uninsured or untraced driver, you need to consult a professional who will determine the right course of action for you.

Our experienced team have successfully handled many cases where victims have been involved in an accident with an uninsured driver. Please give one of the team a call to discuss your specific situation.
