Have you had accidents on the road in Rochdale? An accident involving a car can be truly devastating. The injuries and damages, financial and otherwise, can throw our lives right off track, and this can all be made much worse if one of the vehicles involved is uninsured or stolen.
If an uninsured driver, or a stolen vehicle, causes injury or damage to other motorists, property, pedestrians, passengers, cyclists or motorcyclists, someone needs to be there to look out for the injured parties. Accident Advice Helpline might just be able to do that for you.
Dealing with claims against uninsured drivers and stolen vehicles
Insurance companies will sometimes still pay damages and compensation claims even if the driver of the vehicle at the time of the accident is not insured by them, but does insure the owner of said vehicle.
However, if they are unwilling to do this, or if the vehicle is not insured at all, the only path left is to make the claim through the MIB. However, this accident must have happened on public roads as there is a legal requirement for all drivers to have insurance for their vehicles in these areas.
If these incidents occur on private roads or places, such as places of employment, employers must have liability insurance for any employees driving in these areas, but this does not cover any members of the public driving in these private roads or places.
Similarly, if a vehicle that has been stolen becomes involved in an accident, the insurance of the owner of the vehicle may cover the costs involved. Again, if the insurance company decides against this course of action, or there is no insurance for the vehicle, the claim should go through the MIB.
The Motor Insurers’ Bureau
The organisation of the Motor Insurers’ Bureau deals with claims against uninsured, stolen and untraced vehicles for members of the public. Though it is optional to deal directly with the Motor Insurers’ Bureau, it is advisable to have professional legal assistance with this as the process can be complicated, which is where Accident Advice Helpline will be able to help you deal with claims for injuries caused by accidents on the road in Rochdale.
