Uninsured Driver Accident Claims
If you have been involved in a road traffic accident with an uninsured driver, or the motorist responsible for your accident left the scene without providing contact or insurance details, you may still be able to make a Motor Insurers' Bureau compensation claim for personal injury or damage to your vehicle.
Making a Motor Insurers' Bureau claim can be a more complex process than a typical road traffic accident claim; therefore it is advisable to employ the services of a specialist motoring claims lawyer, such as the team at Grieves Solicitors.

What is the Motor Insurers' Bureau?
The Motor Insurers' Bureau (MIB) is an industry-led organisation that exists to compensate the victims of negligent untraced and uninsured drivers. It also maintains the Motor Insurers' Database (MID), which holds insurance details of over 34-million vehicles in the UK.According to the MIB, uninsured drivers cause injury to 23,000 people each year and are responsible for the deaths of a further 160, costing law-abiding motorists as much as £500 million.
What to do if you are hit by an uninsured driver
If you suffer a personal injury or damage to your vehicle after being hit by an uninsured driver, ensure that you:
- record the details of any witnesses;
- report the accident to the police;
- seek medical attention for any injuries suffered;
- photograph the scene of the accident and any damage to your vehicle;
- find out how much the necessary repairs to your vehicle will cost.
Even if you are unable to secure all the above information, contact the specialist uninsured driver lawyers at Grieves Solicitors to find out if you can make a claim.
