Uninsured Driver Claims
It is compulsory for nearly all motorised vehicles intended to be driven on UK roads to be insured.  Unfortunately, this does not prevent a large number of drivers from disregarding the law and continuing to drive without insurance cover.  

Unlike claims in which the identity of a driver is known or where the driver is insured, uninsured and untraced driver claims are dealt with by the Motor Insurers' Bureau (MIB).  The procedure for making such a claim and the time limits for doing so are not the same as those applied in cases where the Defendant has insurance and their identity is verified.  For this reason it is vital that you are represented in this matter by a solicitor such as Poric Dervan who has over 20 years experience in making claims against the MIB.

  • Uninsured Drivers scheme.  When a person is injured by a driver who has no insurance the MIB may compensate him or her, but fault on the part of the uninsured driver must be proved first, either in court or in arbitration.  If the claim is successful, the MIB can issue compensation for injuries, pain and suffering, property damage and vehicle replacement.  Your legal costs are paid in full by the MIB.
  • Untraced Drivers Agreement scheme.  Under this scheme, a person who is injured in a hit and run accident can seek compensation for personal injury.  

You should always seek legal advice as soon as possible following any motor accident in which you have been involved.

If you or someone you know has been injured in a road traffic accident involving an uninsured or untraced driver, please call Dervans Solicitors to learn how we can help you with your claim.  You can reach us on 0330 999 7530 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
