Are uninsured driver whiplash claims in Bournemouth simple?
Some whiplash claims in Bournemouth are more straightforward than others. If you have had the misfortune to have been hurt or injured by an uninsured driver you may think that your chances of making a successful claim are over before they’ve begun. Well, thankfully you’d be wrong. Whilst making whiplash claims in Bournemouth which involve an uninsured driver complicates things a little, your claim is certainly not dead in the water by a long shot.
What’s the best way to proceed with uninsured driver whiplash claims?
If you have suspicions that the driver of the vehicle at fault is not insured, you should ring the police immediately and request that they attend the scene. A driver who has something to hide may be reluctant to provide you with any insurance details and offer to pay you some cash then and there. Because it can take a few days for the full symptoms of a whiplash injury to develop, you would be wise to not agree to anything at the scene of the accident without legal consultation.
- Insist on getting the driver’s full contact details. If you have a camera phone on your person it would be worth your while taking a quick snap of the vehicle registration number and the make, model and colour of the vehicle.
- If it transpires that the driver was uninsured, their disregard for the law will become a matter for the police. The Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) is a governing body and its members are any company who offers motor insurance. Every driver who has car insurance automatically pays into the MIB. Their remit is to ensure that victims of uninsured drivers are fairly compensated and that the impact of those negligent drivers is minimised.
