You can make an MIB claim if you have been involved in a road traffic accident with an uninsured driver and the accident was not your fault. The MIB Motor Insurers Bureau is there so that victims of road traffic accidents can still claim compensation even if the responsible third party is not insured.
Many drivers are under the impression that if you are involved in a road traffic accident with an uninsured driver then you are unable to make a claim. This is a myth. Fortunately in the UK there is still a way of obtaining compensation if you have been hit by a driver without a valid motor insurance policy. This process can be more complicated than a straightforward claim against an insurance company so you are best seeking legal advice from one of the MIB specialists at Michael Lewin Solicitors.
The Motor Insurers bureau (MIB) is an industry led organisation that works closely with the government so that innocent road traffic accident victims can make a claim for personal injury. There is now also the option to make a claim against the MIB for damage to property; a development that has only occurred recently.
You can make a claim for any damage to your property like your car if you have been hit by an uninsured driver or if the car that caused your accident is untraceable. Mr M received over £2000.00 in personal injury compensation after he made a claim for a personal injury award with the help of Michael Lewin Solicitors.
If you want to make an MIB claim it is advisable that you seek legal advice before proceeding. If you make a claim with the help of Michal Lewin solicitors you are much more likely to be awarded with the maximum recompense you deserve.
If you have been hit by an uninsured driver the following steps will help your case if you want to claim from the MIB:
? If the driver sped off without stopping you may not have been able to get the registration number; if this is the case it is imperative that you get the details of any witnesses that may have seen the accident.
? Reporting the incident to the police is very important in uninsured driver cases. Even if a witness has reported the incident you should speak to the police yourself.
? Make sure you receive medical attention for your injuries so an accurate award can be made for the level of injury you sustained.
