If you have been involved in an accident with an uninsured driver, whether as a driver, a passenger or as a pedestrian, and have been injured as a result, then you may be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries, treatment and out-of-pocket expenses.
The Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB) was set up specifically to deal with claims by victims of accidents involving an uninsured driver. They also deal with claims involving untraced drivers. Put simply, if you suffer an accident that was caused by an uninsured driver, then you may be able to claim.
Circumstances which may involve an uninsured driver include:
- An otherwise normal road traffic accident but where the other driver gives you the runaround when it comes to exchanging insurance details
- Hit and run accidents
- Being a passenger in an accident where the driver did not have insurance
What Can I Claim For?
When you are injured following an accident with an uninsured driver, it can have a number of financial consequences. That’s why at LawClaim.net, we focus on more than just the injury compensation.
Other expenses to consider that should be a part of your claim include:
- Vehicle Repair or Replacement
- Hire Car Costs
- Medication and Treatment
How Does It All Work?
Making a claim for an accident involving an uninsured is simpler than you would think. It all starts with an informal chat to discuss your circumstances. We’ll talk about your prospects of success and what exactly we can do to help make life easier for you in the meantime.
Once we have taken on your case, we’ll submit your claim to the MIB. From that point on, we will negotiate directly with the MIB to settle the claim fairly and obtain any treatment that you need to assist your recovery.
If they do not accept your claim, we can take your case to court, but don’t worry, as only a very small percentage of cases are actually settled in court. Most are dealt with directly with the MIB by way of negotiation.
The LawClaim Difference
Any personal injury lawyer can take on a case for accidents involving an uninsured driver, but it takes experience and skill to get the best outcome.
The key difference that you’ll get when making an uninsured driver claim through LawClaim is the way in which your claim will be handled. Unfortunately most large firms have to use junior lawyers or case handlers who are not even qualified solicitors to handle your case, with as little time spent on your case as possible, in order to make it profitable for them.
But because our clients come to us directly and we do not have the same overheads, we can afford to spend as much time and put in as much work as is required to get the best outcome possible for you.
It’s not surprising that so many of our clients started their cases elsewhere, but transferred to us when the realised that they needed more time and effort to get the right result for them.
So what does this mean to you? By choosing LawClaim, depending on your circumstances, you could get:
- A better or faster settlement for your injury claim
- Private medical treatment
- Helping with arranging a replacement hire vehicle if you need it
- Reimbursement of your travel costs, medication costs and other out-of-pocket expenses
