Our Solicitors Can Help If You’ve Been Hit By An Uninsured Driver

Innocent people across Northern Ireland are hit by uninsured drivers every single day. It’s an incredibly difficult situation, which is made so much worse by the uncertainty over whether you’ll be able to receive the compensation you deserve. 

Our solicitors are able to assist you if you’ve been hit by an uninsured driver. The process is a little different because you are not claiming against another driver’s insurer, however we have the expertise to guide you through the entire claims process.  

An uninsured driver hit me, what can I do?

You are legally required to have insurance for your vehicle in Northern Ireland. If you are involved in an accident with a driver who isn’t insured, it is best to try to take down as much information as possible, including:

  • Where the accident took place
  • Time and date of the accident
  • Any details about the other car, including the colour and model
  • The name of the other driver and their contact details.
  • The names of any witnesses on the scene. 
  • Take photos of the scene, including damage to your car. 

Additionally, NI Direct recommends that you contact the police and report the uninsured driver. This is particularly important if the other driver doesn’t want to provide you with any important details. 

Uninsured driver claims process

Claiming against an uninsured driver is a little different from the usual personal injury claims process. These sorts of claims are handled by the Motor Insurance Bureau, also known as the MIB. It is a body especially created to compensate victims that have been involved in an accident with an uninsured driver.

Unfortunately, claiming through the MIB can be complex and quite slow. This is why many victims choose to contact us to assist them through the entire process. Our solicitors are trained in this area and have assisted countless people across Northern Ireland.

If you need assistance with your claim against an uninsured driver, contact our solicitors or visit our offices in Belfast, Glengormley and Carrickfergus.
