Have you been involved in a road traffic accident with an uninsured driver ?
If so you may be entitled to make a compensation claim through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) .UK motorists are required to obtain adequate motor insurance to legally drive or park a vehicle on our roads. It is estimated however, that there are around 1.3 million road users in the UK that drive without insurance .If you are hit by an uninsured driver there is no insurance company to provide compensation for damage to your vehicle or personal injury. This does not mean that you are unable to recover your losses. Provided that you meet the criteria the Motor Insurers Bureau will compensate you for your losses.

In certain cases we may be able to arrange for your vehicle to be collected and repaired as well as providing you with a hire vehicle, usually within 24 hours. We do not charge you for this service as the costs are recovered directly from the MIB at the end of your claim.
What is the Uninsured Drivers Scheme
This Motor Insurers Bureau Uninsured Driver's scheme deals with compensation claims arising out of accidents caused or contributed to by an uninsured driver. Where it is shown that no policy of insurance exists covering the responsible party’s vehicle, the MIB will consider dealing with a claim for compensation.
The MIB will consider claims for the cost of repairing/replacing your vehicle, hire charges, loss of use, loss of earnings, out of pocket expenses and personal injury. An injured party can also claim for treatment and for pain and suffering.
Our team of personal injury experts specialise in helping victims of road traffic accidents involving uninsured and untraced drivers claim compensation through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau. The Motor insurance Bureau are an organisation funded through contributory payments, from policy premiums, by the Insurance industry. The scheme pays compensation to Claimants who suffer a loss due to an incident involving an uninsured or untraced motor vehicle.
