Accidents Involving an Uninsured Driver
Most people think that if the responsible person does not hold motor insurance then the only avenue available to them is to pursue a claim against their own insurer, which will ultimately result in higher insurance premiums.
Any potential claim can be submitted to the Motor Insurers Bureau. This body was created by the Government in 1946. The rationale is that all insurance companies pay into this fund and its sole purpose is to compensate victims of road traffic accidents which have been caused by negligent, uninsured or untraceable drivers.
This type of claim is conducted differently to regular road traffic claims, which are pursued directly with insurance companies. Farleys Solicitors LLP has a great deal of experience in handling claims involving an uninsured driver. Our personal injury solicitors regularly handle claims involving the Motor Insurers Bureau, allowing your case to be better managed than if it were processed through a bulk handling Claims Company.
