Untraced driver injury claims


A road traffic accident can be a distressing experience, particularly if it results in a severe injury. However, the experience can be even worse if the driver responsible for your injury left without providing you with his or her details.

If you have been unfortunate enough to encounter an accident of this nature, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim. However, you will need to make your claim against the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) rather than an insurance company.

Hand your case over to our specialist untraced driver injury claims experts

The process of claiming compensation from the MIB can be long and drawn out, which is unsurprising, given that the organisation will need to thoroughly investigate the events surrounding your accident. During the course of its investigations, it may need to:

  • Establish the facts
  • Confirm your identity
  • Obtain independent reports from witnesses to your accidents
  • Obtain copies of police reports
  • Contact the hospital or GP’s surgery you attended in the immediate aftermath of your accident to obtain copies of your medical records
  • Arrange for you to see an independent medical specialist

The MIB will only award you compensation if it can establish that the untraced driver was responsible for your accident. If it concludes that you were partly to blame, it will reduce your compensation payment accordingly.

If you have never made an MIB claim before, you may be unaware of its stringent rules and regulations, and as a result, you may miss out on the compensation you so rightfully deserve.

Let our specialist team fight for your legal rights

At Accident Advice Helpline, our legal experts deal with untraced driver injury claims on a daily basis and they will be pleased to ensure that you do not fall foul of the MIB’s strict regulations.

If the MIB deems that you are eligible to receive compensation, we will enter into negotiations on your behalf, ensuring that you receive an appropriate settlement for your pain, suffering and financial losses. In our experience, low value untraced driver injury claims usually reach a satisfactory conclusion within six weeks. However, if your injuries are severe your claim may take several months to resolve.

If you have any queries about the claims process, please contact us on our Freephone helpline 0800 689 0500 or fill in our 30-second test.
