Final result of the consultation on the published agreement on uninsured drivers. Arbitrators are appointed by the same body that decides on other remedies under the agreement, following proposals rejected during the consultation process to extend the arbitration committee to lawyers with more than 10 years of experience. The rotating body therefore remains limited to the Queen`s advice, as some claims dealt with by the MIB can be particularly complex and of considerable value. I am really pleased with Winston`s mandatory lawyer who was made available to my case, the staff were friendly and helpful and always kept me informed of the progress of my case. This fixed fee agreement takes into account the legal contribution we receive from the MIB in case of success. It also takes into account the fact that if the requirement is not successful, we are not paid at all, since Winston`s solicitors handle all these cases on a «no profit, no fee» basis. The latest 2017 agreement on drivers not found applies to accidents that occurred on or after March 1, 2017. For accidents that occurred on or after 14 February 2003 and before 1 March 2017, the 2003 Agreement on Uninsuscited Drivers applies and, prior to that, rights involving drivers without traceability were covered by the 1996 Agreement on Uns persecuted drivers. Supplementary agreements were concluded in 2008, 2011, 2013 and 2015. The most recent agreement for England, Wales and Scotland applies to accidents occurring on or after 1 March 2017. These agreements are available on the MIB website.
The new agreement on non-towed drivers and the supplementary agreement on uninsured drivers will enter into force on 1 March 2017. The agreements are available from the Office of Automobile Insurers. MIB acts as the insurer of last resort under agreements with the Ministry of Transport. These agreements shall be reviewed from time to time to take account of any necessary amendments. The rules of these two systems are complex and it is very easy to invalidate a claim if you submit it incorrectly. It is therefore important to use the services of a lawyer specialized in this field. At Birchall Blackburn Law, we have experts who have looked at many claims, both in the context of uninsured agreements and unsusured agreements. . . .
