The decision to go to court depends on the circumstances of the accident and the parties involved.

Injured by an uninsured driver

If you are involved in an accident involving an uninsured or untraced motorist, our team can assist you in pursuing a claim for compensation. The claim is pursued via the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB) through their uninsured and untraced motorist driver agreements.

A pre-requisite of the Motor Insurers Bureau is the accident must have been reported to the police, it is important to do this promptly after the accident has taken place. Failure to do so can lead to the MIB rejecting your claim.

The MIB may reject a claim for other reasons, such as willingly being transported in a vehicle as a passenger when you are aware the driver is uninsured.

The MIB uninsured and untraced motorist driver agreements are complex and our specialist team have significant experience of pursuing claims against the MIB under both agreements.
