The party who will be paying your compensation claim
In the case of a road traffic accident, this would generally be one of two organisations. The first port of call would be the other drivers insurance company, but if they turn out to be uninsured for some reason, the claim would be made with the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB).
Anyone who offers motor insurance has to be a member of the MIB. They exist to ensure that non-fault victims of road traffic accidents do not lose out because of a lack of insurance. The motor insurance companies have to pay the MIB a levy each year to fund these compensation payments. They also have to provide data of who they are insuring which is fed into a central database. This database has the information about all insured vehicles in the UK.
