MIB Untraced Drivers Scheme

Tragically, some motorcyclists can fall victim to hit and run accidents. Unfortunately, this appears to be happening more often than in the past.

Sometimes, a driver can side swipe a motorcyclist without being aware they’ve made contact but usually they will be aware but choose not to stop.

It is important to always report accidents where you have been injured to Police Scotland immediately – even if you don’t have details of the offending vehicle.
In cases involving hit and run, the injured motorcyclist can still seek compensation even though the offending motorist is never traced. The Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB) Untraced Drivers Agreement allows innocent victims of accidents to seek an award for compensation.

Once the application is received, the MIB will investigate the claim and assess compensation.

We can assist you in submitting the application and guide you through the entire process, from start to finish.

With hit and run cases, time limits apply. If you have a claim for damage to your vehicle or other property, you must report the incident to the police within 5 days of the accident.

For claims for injury this must be done within 14 days.

Where it is not possible to comply with these time limits, the matter must be reported to Police Scotland as soon as reasonably possible.
