    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Can you claim with an uninsured driver?

    The law requires all drivers to have at least third party insurance. This means drivers are insured against damages to other vehicles or properties and or injuries to individuals or animals. If involved in a traffic accident, drivers are also required to exchange insurance and contact details, vehicle registration numbers, and so on. Insurances also need to be informed of road accidents as soon as possible.

    Drivers must also be adequately insured to drive a vehicle.  While owner-drivers are automatically covered by their insurance, additional drivers typically have to be added. In other words, if a person not named as a driver on an insurance policy drives a vehicle, they are essentially breaking the law by driving without insurance.

    The Uninsured Driver

    In spite of the fact that everyone is aware of these legal requirements, some drivers choose to travel without insurance. Such drivers risk heavy fines, potential prosecution and endorsement, if not suspension of their licenses. If they are involved in or cause road accidents, they may also leave themselves open to potential financial ruin if other people were injured through their fault and decide to claim for compensation.

    Road traffic accidents and injury claims

    People injured in accidents involving motorbikes, cars or cyclists through no fault of their own often worry that they may not be able to claim compensation if the driver at fault is not insured. This, however, is not an issue they need to worry about as it is indeed possible to claim personal injury compensation after accidents involving uninsured drivers.
