Motor Insurers Bureau Claims

About The Motor Insurers Bureau

The Motor Insurers Bureau was established in 1946 as a central fund to provide injury compensation for the victims of road accidents by negligent, uninsured and untraced drivers.

All insurers underwriting compulsory motor insurance are obliged by law – the Road Traffic Act 1988 – to be members of the MIB and contribute funding.

The Motor Insurers Bureau is funded by all UK motor insurers. Motor insurers are only allowed to operate if they belong to the MIB and pay a share of its costs.

It operates under two separate agreements between the Government and the motor insurers:

The Uninsured Drivers Agreement

This requires the Motor Insurers Bureau to meet unsatisfied Civil Court Judgments against identified motorists who may not have been insured, as required by the Road Traffic Act 1988.
The Untraced Drivers Agreement
The Untraced Drivers Agreement requires the bureau to consider applications for compensation from victims of hit and run accidents.

If you need an experienced RTA solicitor to handle your claim against an uninsured driver via the MIB, or just looking for some legal advice on how the system works, why not contact Aim? We are always happy to help.

Uninsured Drivers – The Statistics

As well as being a criminal act, driving without insurance is irresponsible in the extreme. By law, compulsory insurance is required to safeguard other road users and pedestrians in the event of an accident as well as the driver of the vehicle who causes the accident. Drivers who are on the road without insurance is widespread though: especially among young drivers.

Research from the Motor Insurers Bureau shows:

  • Three in four drivers are currently looking for ways to reduce their motor insurance costs.
  • One in ten 18-34 year old drivers are unaware that car insurance is a legal requirement.
  • About 900,000 drivers under the age of 30 are currently driving without insurance.
  • 60 per cent of drivers think they are likely to be caught but only seven per cent are aware of all the possible consequences when they are caught.

How To Claim Compensation Against Uninsured Drivers

In hit and run accidents or if you are hit by a stolen vehicle or an uninsured one your compensation claim can still be met via the Motor Insurers Bureau although you may wish to enlist an experienced Road Traffic Accident solicitor to deal with your claim against the uninsured driver.
