It is claimed that there could be as many as one million uninsured drivers/vehicles on the UK’s roads. That means that, on average, every time you pass 38 cars, one of them is driving with no insurance.
Aside from being illegal, it is dangerous and can cause problems in the event of an accident.
Fortunately, if you are involved in an accident with an uninsured driver, even if you are injured, it is possible to make a claim for compensation.
Browell Smith & Co has a lot of experience of making such claims, against the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (see below) on behalf of clients: if you have been injured in a car accident and it wasn’t your fault, we can still get you the compensation and the injury rehabilitation you need.
Browell Smith & Co has a proven track record of securing justice for people who have been injured by uninsured drivers.
We understand what you are going through: we understand how keen you are to be able to get your life back on track and carry on doing the things you love as quickly as possible.
We take a sympathetic, client-first approach and will treat your rehabilitation as an absolute priority, concentrating on restoring you as closely as possible to the condition you were in before the accident.
The Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) is an organisation that is funded by ‘regular’ insurance companies. In the event of an accident involving an uninsured driver, a claim would be made against the MIB in the absence of an actual insurer.
Browell Smith & Co will proceed with your claim in much the same way as any other: we will work with everyone involved to establish fault and/or negligence, gather witness statements and progress your claim as smoothly as possible. As with any other claim, it must be made within three years of the accident.
Note that the MIB, though, is not a ‘replacement’ for insurance, and driving without insurance is still highly illegal.
As always, we always recommend speaking to a solicitor as soon as possible after an injury has been sustained as successful physical rehabilitation can depend on rapid action.
Time is of the essence. If you speak today to Browell Smith & Co, one of our specialist personal injury team will be able to take you through the information-gathering process and focus on you, your needs and the claims assessment procedure.
Speak to us and we will provide you with a checklist of information you may need. DO NOT WORRY if you do not have everything to hand as we will be able to assist you where needed.

The aim of any compensation claim is to seek to restore, in a monetary way, the injured person to the condition they were in prior to the accident. This, as anyone who has suffered an injury will know, is not the same as not having been injured in the first place.
However necessary medical, therapeutic, or psychological treatments to help recover from injuries, as well as financial compensation for past and future losses incurred as a result of the accident may be recoverable in more modest injuries as well as housing and care costs for more serious injuries.
