The seconds and minutes immediately after a road traffic accident can be very stressful, not to mention painful. Nevertheless, you are comforted by the fact that you can make a personal injury claim for any injuries that you have suffered and for any money that you will lose because you are injured. What if the driver was not insured? What can you do to still get compensated for your injuries?
Have you been in an accident with an uninsured driver?
If this has happened to you, then you will already be aware of just how worrying this can be. Sadly, you are not alone. Hundreds of drivers, passengers and pedestrians are injured by uninsured drivers every day. We here at Accident Advice Helpline can assist you with this type of claim so you can stop worrying now.
It is still important that you collect as much information as you can at the scene. We will need to prove that the accident was not your own fault and that you were injured as a result of it. Make sure that you get medical attention as soon as you can.
We will conduct your claim in the same way as other claims – with care and attention to every detail. However, the driver’s insurance obviously cannot pay your claim. Instead, the claim will be paid by the Motor Insurers’ Bureau. You do not need to worry about this – we will handle all of the technicalities.
You will still be able to claim for the injury itself and for money that you have lost because you are injured.
