Road traffic accidents can be distressing enough, without finding out that the driver who hit you was uninsured. If you’ve been involved in a collision with an uninsured driver and you were not to blame, Accident Advice Helpline could help you to claim compensation.
What happens when an uninsured driver is involved?
When uninsured drivers are at fault for car collisions, the claims process may be a little different to normal; however, it is still possible for the expert personal injury lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline to ensure your road traffic accident claim is successful.
If the car is insured under the name of another driver, the insurance company may still be willing to handle the car crash compensation claim and offer a payout to the innocent driver. In this case, the final decision is taken by the insurance provider and made at their discretion.
If the insurance provider is not willing to handle the claim because they do not insure the driver who was at fault, it may still be possible to claim compensation for a car crash through the Motor Insurer’s Bureau.
It is possible to work with the MIB independently, but the process can be lengthy and stressful and it’s advisable to seek legal assistance from Accident Advice Helpline. Working with a legal firm prevents the situation from becoming even more traumatic and enables you to focus on your recovery.
Reducing the risk of accidents
Even the most careful drivers are at risk of road accidents and the vast majority of incidents in the UK are caused by human error. Examples of common causes of car crash injuries include:
- not looking before you pull out, turn or change lane
- failing to notice other vehicles or pedestrians
- driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- poor judgement
Injuries caused by road accidents can range from mild cuts and bruising to severe head and spinal injuries, which may prove fatal.
