Why an uninsured motorist claim is different
Usually, when making a claim for an injury caused by a road traffic accident, the compensation is covered by the opponent’s vehicle insurance policy. However, you may still be able to claim compensation if you’ve had an accident involving an uninsured driver or in incidents where the driver cannot be identified, such as a hit and run.
In these cases a claim for compensation is processed through the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB) instead of through the insurance provider. The MIB was set up to help the victims of traffic accidents claim against uninsured or untraceable drivers.
The process of claiming through the MIB is complex and subject to strict rules and regulations and time constraints. They can also be subject to delays due to the lack of information available about the other party involved in the accident.
It is important that you seek professional legal advice as soon as possible after your accident. Our expert lawyers have experience in dealing with claiming compensation through the MIB and can explain the process to you, keeping you up to date with any information throughout the course of your uninsured motorist claim.
