If your injury was at least partly because of another driver’s negligent driving, you can claim compensation. You can still claim compensation even if the other driver was not insured or if you think they don’t have enough money to pay you compensation. The Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) may pay you compensation if the other driver:

  • didn’t have insurance; or
  • cannot be found (for example, if you were injured in a hit-and-run accident).

See 'Further Help' for how to contact the MIB.
