Mastering Motor Insurers' Bureau Claims

A brand new course!

Approximately 5% of RTA accidents involve an at fault driver who is either uninsured, unidentified or whose insurance cover is potentially vitiated through policy breaches, misrepresentation or non-disclosure of a material fact. 

The need to present an MIB claim is a regular, if somewhat disconcerting, phenomenon due to the special rules that apply to such claims.

This brand new full day of essential training provides busy practitioners with an all-you-need-to-know guidance on running these claims.

Both of the current compensatory schemes (for victims of uninsured and untraced drivers) contain numerous unlawful provisions that conflict with the more generous minimum standards of compensatory protection required by the European directive 2009/103 on motor insurance.

In 2015 the government announced a new Uninsured Drivers Agreement that included illegal provisions which even the government now admits must be revised.  It failed to revoke the earlier 1999 Agreement, that continues to apply to accident before 1 August 2015.  The Untraced Drivers Agreement 2003, amended five times in separate supplemental agreements, has even more defects.
These and many other unlawful provisions are the subject of an ongoing judicial review.

This full day of training covers:

  • All practical and procedural aspects of running an MIB claim
  • The Uninsured Drivers Agreement 2015
  • The Uninsured Drivers Agreement 1999
  • The Untraced Drivers Agreement 2003 and the five revisions
  • The MIB’s role
  • Ground breaking new research and insights
  • Why the MIB is an emanation of the state and why this matters
  • Why the MIB is liable to compensate victims affected by the government’s defective provision in the Road Traffic Act 1988
  • The relevant European law and European remedies distilled into a quick reference nutshell
