Making a Claim
We deal with the victims of car collisions with uninsured drivers on a daily basis, and that’s why we ask you to get in touch with us if you are in this situation. There are many available routes to claiming compensation against an uninsured driver, one of which being to bring a claim against the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB). This is a body funded by insurers to help those in your position claim the compensation that they rightly deserve.
If you are to make a claim with the MIB, it is important that you report your accident to the Police within five days of its occurrence. If, however, you have suffered a personal injury, this window is extended to fourteen days. In addition to this, you are expected to claim for any injuries suffered within three years of the accident. During this time, it is advisable that you keep your losses to a minimum. This is called ‘mitigating’ your loss. We additionally encourage anyone looking to claim for a road traffic accident to retain any evidence of the accident, such as medical reports and a copy of the police report. These small things could make a big difference to your claim.
