Motor Insurers Bureau Claims

If you are injured by an uninsured driver or you are involved in a hit and run accident where the other driver cannot be found, the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB) can assist:

  • under the Uninsured Driver’s Agreement the MIB will pay compensation in the same way as if the driver was insured, subject to certain limits in relation to damage to property. It will also pay your legal costs in the usual way
  • under the Untraced Driver’s Agreement there is also a limit on claims for property damage and if there is only a claim in relation to that it needs to be made within 9 months of the date of the accident. There are also strict limits on the amount of the MIB’s contribution towards your legal costs

Under both agreements there are a number of requirements and exceptions which represent traps for anyone not used to dealing with these motor insurance claims.

If you have had an accident because of the actions of someone driving without insurance or an untraced driver let us help you with your Motor Insurers Bureau claim. We have particular expertise in this area.

To speak to a specialist personal injury lawyer who can help with a Motor Insurers’ Bureau claim or any other type of accident claim contact us now by calling, emailing or requesting a callback.
