About accidents involving an uninsured driver
As a pedestrian, you may be obeying all the rules of the road when suddenly and through no fault of your own, you are involved in a collision.
This type of accident can be incredibly traumatic, and given that pedestrians are the most exposed of all road users, the injuries that occur can often be serious and life-threatening. If you have been in such an accident, things may be bad enough, but they can seem instantly worse if you find out the driver does not have insurance. For many people contemplating making a car accident claim in Dartford, it may seem like a fruitless endeavour to do so with an uninsured driver.
However, with Accident Advice Helpline, that is not always the case. As one of the more experienced personal injury law firms in the country, we are equipped to handle difficult cases, such as those involving an uninsured driver, and have done so successfully over the past fourteen years. With our help, you can make sure the right people are held responsible for your injuries, and that you are not left paying for expensive medical bills out of pocket.
How do car accident claims in Dartford involving an uninsured driver work?
Firstly, it is important to report the accident right away. If there is a need to involve the Motor Insurance Bureau (MIB), you must have reported the accident within 14 days of it happening. It is also worthy of note that to make a claim for a car accident, it must have taken place within the past three years.
If the driver is uninsured but there is a policy on the vehicle for another driver, there may be the potential to make a claim through the insurer as usual. If there is no policy on the vehicle whatsoever, the MIB may get involved. The MIB is an organisation that has been set up to specifically deal with cases involving untraced or uninsured drivers, and working alongside them, we will do our best to make sure you are duly compensated for the pain you may have endured.
