pexels-photo-929006.jpegNo matter what age you are being in a Road Traffic Accident is a frightening experience.

The costs of a Road Traffic Accident can be even more frightening than the experience itself!

The Motor Insurers Bureau (“MIB”) is an Agency set up by agreement with the Insurance Industry to deal with claims when the normal routes of compensation do not apply.

Such as where the other driver:

  1. Is uninsured
  2. Drove off and cannot be traced

They also deal with cases where UK residents are involved in accidents with foreign-registered vehicles, either in the UK or elsewhere in Europe.

In certain circumstances the MIB may also pay compensation for property damage.

In order to make a claim under the MIB regulations it is vital to report the accident to the PSNI and to obtain as much information as possible in respect of the other driver.

The MIB ask that you:

1. Make enquiries to see if the motorist is insured

2. Provide information in relation to the driver and vehicle details

3. Provide any other information will be useful

Such as telephone numbers, email addresses.

4. Contact your insurance company

5. Collect as much information as you can about your losses

In cases where the driver does not stop their vehicle or refuses to give their details it is important for you to:

1.     Attempt to get as much as information as possible about the make and car registration

2.     Take down a description of the other driver

3.     Report the matter to the PSNI

We have had the opportunity to work with MIB for a number of years on various cases. As a firm we can progress you case quickly and with experience to ensure that any compensation you receive reflects the damage done or the injury to your person.
