Uninsured and Untraced Driver Accident Claims in Scotland

When you are involved in a car accident, it is widely known that you should attempt to get the other driver’s insurance details. However, the number of uninsured drivers in Scotland is very high, and so this might not always be possible. We understand how traumatic it can be to be involved in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence – and how frustrated you may feel if you find out the person responsible is uninsured or untraceable.

Many are under the impression that if you are involved in a collision with an uninsured driver or a driver that flees the scene you will not be able to bring a claim for compensation for your injury. In fact, with the help of highly experienced personal injury lawyers, it is entirely possible.

At Jones Whyte Law, we believe it is only right that you receive the compensation you are due when you are injured because of someone else’s negligent behaviour. We will use our expert knowledge and experience of dealing with uninsured and untraced driver accident claims to get you the best possible outcome. Contact us today for advice tailored to your circumstances.

The Motor Insurance Bureau

The Motor Insurance Bureau was established in 1946 to compensate the victims of negligent uninsured or untraced drivers. Making a claim in these situations is different from the usual process for personal injury claims. The expert solicitors at Jones Whyte will assist you every step of the way in your application to the Motor Insurance Bureau. We will help you structure your application and fill out all the forms properly so that you have the best opportunity of obtaining the maximum amount of compensation possible. We will work quickly and efficiently to help settle your claim with minimal disruption and stress to you.

While you may not have the insurance details for the liable driver, you may have been able to collect some other important information, such as the make, model and registration of the uninsured car, the names and addresses of any witnesses and photographs of the accident scene. Your medical records relating to your injury will also be key to your claim. We will help you pull together every piece of evidence possible to support your case.

The Untraceable Driver Agreement

Where it is not possible to gather the requisite contact information of the driver who you were involved in an accident with, we can still help you pursue your claim. The Motor Insurance Bureau is able to pay out under the Untraceable Driver Agreement in these cases. This can mean the damages you receive are below the amount you would have got otherwise. However, the expert solicitors at Jones Whyte will work hard to obtain the greatest amount of compensation possible.
