Solicitors in Essex & London
Our personal injury solicitors possess particular expertise in dealing with the complications that arise from injuries caused by uninsured or untraced motorists across Essex, London and further afield. Our lawyers are experienced in pursuing such claims which involve the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB) and the strict requirements of the various MIB agreements which govern this area.
Whether the driver was uninsured or untraced, the consequences of these accidents can be life-changing. Our solicitors can guide clients through what can be a lengthy and difficult process to achieve the best possible outcome for them and their families.
The MIB was set up in 1946 as a result of an agreement between the insurance companies and the government. The aim of the many agreements which have developed since is to ensure that the innocent victim of an uninsured or untraced driver is placed in the same position as an innocent victim of an insured driver.
There are many potential tripwires in the agreements however which require careful navigation if a claim is to succeed. Our specialist solicitors have dealt with a number of very serious cases against the MIB and have successfully recovered significant damages involving head injuries, loss of limbs and serious fractures on behalf of car drivers, passengers, cyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians.
We offer a free initial meeting to discuss your claim against an uninsured or untraced driver, assess the merits of any action and to try and give you an indication of the compensation you may be entitled, as well as the likely duration of your case. We act for most of our clients on a no win no fee basis. We have disabled access at our Hornchurch, Brentwood and Upminster offices. If more convenient, we are happy to visit our clients at home or in hospital.
