You might well be surprised to learn that as many as one in every 36 drivers on UK roads does not have vehicle insurance of any kind. This is illegal, but that doesn’t stop them. With some people having to pay many thousands of pounds a year for cover, it’s easy to see why some can be tempted to do it. There are those who also calculate that it is worth the risk as the consequences of getting caught are not as severe as one might assume.
If you’re a road user of any description, one of the last things you’ll probably want is to be involved in an accident with an uninsured driver. You’d probably be worried that you’d have little chance of recovering any money you would need to spend fixing your vehicle and would not be able to launch some form of 100% ‘no win, no fee’ personal injury action with the help of a good Suffolk Coastal law firm. Well, things might not be quite as bleak as you think.
Uninsured drivers and Suffolk Coastal law firm action
The insurance industry administers a body known as the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB). The MIB was set up to compensate people who are involved in accidents that are caused by uninsured drivers. Everybody who has a car insurance premium pays for the MIB through an additional charge on their policy. If you were to be injured in a road traffic accident that was not your fault, there will be a chance that you might well be able to make a claim through the MIB.
You can make a claim yourself, but doing so is a fairly complex business that you might not have the time or the inclination to deal with. This is where a decent 100% ‘no win, no fee’ Suffolk Coastal law firm could come into play. You can retain the services of a 100% ‘no win, no fee’ personal injury Suffolk Coastal law firm and have it manage your claim on your behalf. Using a claims firm could also make it more likely that you’ll get all the money you deserve. If you are offered less than you should, an injury law firm will know and will be able to appeal for you.
