If you’ve ever been in a road accident with a negligent uninsured driver, or been the victim of an untraced ‘hit-and-run’, you may think that there’s nothing you can do about it. Fortunately, at Romain Coleman we’re specialists in uninsured road accident claims.
It’s a little-known fact that if a driver, passenger or pedestrian is injured in a road accident where the guilty party is either uninsured or party to a hit-and-run scenario, a claim can still be pursued by contacting the Motor Insurers Bureau. This is an organisation set up by the Government and Motor Insurers to compensate the victims of uninsured and untraced drivers, even in circumstances where the offending driver flees the scene and his registration number has not been taken. The Motor Insurers Bureau does not publicise its existence, which has thus far kept the number of claims low, and it is apparent that many people are unaware of the fact that they can pursue such claims and recover damages.
The claims are governed by two agreements: The Uninsured Drivers Agreement and the Untraced Drivers Agreement. While they are somewhat different, the goal is to let the victim recover damages as if the offending party was insured. The two agreements have completely different procedures:
