Who is the responsible party for the injury claim in Robertsbridge?
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 driver’s insurance company, but if they turn out to be uninsured for some reason the claim would be made with the Motor Insurers’ Bureau.
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.
