There are a surprisingly large number of uninsured drivers on the roads in the UK and accidents involving them are numerous. In response to the problems this created, the Motor Insurers' Bureau (MIB) was set up.

The MIB is a body funded by UK motor insurers to pay compensation to people who are injured or killed in accidents which are the fault of an uninsured driver.

Recently, the question arose as to the limits on the MIB's liability for such accidents, when a case was brought for compensation as a result of an accident with an uninsured driver which took place on private land.

The regulations that the Government put in place setting up the MIB do not specifically cover liability for such accidents, which means that they do not comply with the relevant EU directive, but the Court of Appeal ruled that this failure was not fatal to the claim.

If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, please contact Adam Hodson on 0808 166 8827 or email a.hodson@sydneymitchell.co.uk for advice.
