If you’ve had a car accident and suffered injury, and the driver who caused it drove off instead of staying there and dealing with the situation properly, you have probably experienced a whole new level of anger and frustration.
Untraced drivers are every road accident victim’s worst nightmare. At least if you are covered by fully comprehensive insurance, you can get everything sorted out regarding repairs or a replacement car, albeit with the loss of your no claims status.
But, did you know that personal injury solicitors can help you to claim compensation for your personal injury that was caused by an untraced driver? Well, they can, and it’s all thanks to a body called the Motor Insurers’ Bureau.
About the Motor Insurers’ Bureau
The Motor Insurers’ Bureau was set up to compensate victims of accidents caused by uninsured or untraced drivers. Normally, when an injury claim is made, the insurance company of the driver at fault will pay out, but obviously, if the police are unable to trace the driver, this cannot happen. This is where the Motor Insurers’ Bureau steps in.
