Many drivers fear becoming involved in a road accident that was the fault of another driver, only to find out that the other driver involved had no insurance in place. Driving with no insurance is illegal in the UK, so if the person in question was apprehended by the police, they would undoubtedly face charges. But seeing the person that caused your accident get charged for driving without insurance wouldn’t do you much good. Who is going to pay for the damage to your car or any personal injuries you might sustain?
Many drivers assume that if they are hit by an uninsured driver they will be left up the proverbial creek without a paddle when it comes to meeting the costs of getting repairs carried out and any personal injury claims. If your insurance firm covers you for being hit by uninsured drivers, its likely only damage caused to your car will be covered. If your cover provider won’t pay out if you’re hit by an uninsured driver or you want to launch a personal injury claim, all will not be lost. In these circumstances, you might be able to win compensation from the Motor Insurers’ Bureau. You would be wise to use the services of good injury lawyers to help you do so. If you have had an accident on the road in Warrington, read on.
Your accident on the road in Warrington
The Motor Insurers’ Bureau was set up by the car insurance industry back in 1946 as a means of making sure that anybody affected by the actions of an uninsured driver would be compensated. The body is funded by around £30 from every single insured road user. If you think you might have a claim after being hit by an uninsured driver and would like to find out if you could win a pay-out from the Motor Insurers’ Bureau, you’ll have a few options.
You could make an application directly, but as the process of making a claim can be time-consuming and fairly complicated, you may decide that your best bet will be to use a 100% ‘no win, no fee’ solicitor to handle matters for you. This would mean you would not need to worry about dealing with the stress of making your claim.
