Hit & Run Drivers

Uninsured Driver Claims Solicitors

Insurance is mandatory for nearly all motorised vehicles intended to be driven on UK roads.  However, a large number of drivers disregard the law and drive without proper insurance cover.  In addition, untraced drivers (drivers who cause hit and run accidents) are difficult to locate, leaving the victim wondering how to obtain compensation for his or her injuries.

Victims of motor accidents involving untraced and uninsured drivers are still able to claim compensation.  An organisation called the Motor Insurers’ Bureau has been established to ensure that people who were injured at the hands of untraced or uninsured drivers still recover the compensation to which they are entitled.  At Rollingsons Solicitors our personal injury lawyers are very experienced in dealing with the Motor Insurers’ Bureau and are specialists in the field.  We can navigate the process for you and make sure your rights are protected.

The Motor Insurers’ Bureau compensation schemes

Where the identity of a driver is known or where the driver is insured, a claim is made against his or her insurance company.  However, 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 very different from those applied in cases where we know who the defendant actually is, which is why it is important to instruct a specialist personal injury lawyer.

  • 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.  The MIB will pay some but not all, of your legal costs.

As in all claims, timeliness is very important so we encourage you to 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 Rollingsons Solicitors Limited to learn how we can be of assistance.  You can reach us on 0207 611 4848 or online.  Your initial consultation is free of charge.
