RTA involving uninsured or stolen vehicles

Uninsured or stolen - compensation claim advice

Road traffic accidents are governed by the law of negligence and driving is therefore governed by the standard of reasonable care.

All road users owe a duty to one another to use the highway with reasonable care. If a road accident which causes personal injury is caused by a failure to meet this standard, an accident claim for damages may be brought by the injured person.

If any injury occurs as a result of a road traffic accident, the police should be called. They will compile a report which is of considerable importance in any subsequent legal action

If an accident happens, wherever possible take the names and home addresses of witnesses; always keep a record and take photographs if you can; afterwards, keep evidence of doctors visited and treatments, and keep receipts for any injury related expenses.

The Motor Insurers Bureau

Most people who have been involved in a road traffic accident prefer to seek professional legal assistance if they wish to pursue a claim. The procedure can often be complicated and lengthy, particularly if the person responsible for your injury is found to be uninsured.

Clear Answers may be able to deal with your claim via the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) scheme if your case involves an uninsured third party, although it is possible to go directly to the Bureau to seek compensation.

Strict time limits apply for making a personal injury compensation claim, so please seek expert legal advice as soon as you think you may have a valid claim for compensation.

Please visit our section on information and advice for more details on making a personal injury compensation claim, or our gathering information and evidence section for details on what to do if you are involved in an accident.
