With around a million drivers regularly driving on the UK's roads without insurance, it's hardly surprising that when accidents occur where the person to blame doesn't have insurance cover. And that, of course, can cause problems for the other party.
Whether you experience damage to your car or suffer personal injury following a road traffic accident with an uninsured driver, making a claim for compensation becomes difficult and complicated. Although the insurance companies and the Government have created the Motor Insurers' Bureau to help with the problem of uninsured drivers, a personal injury solicitor can be vital to ensure you get all the compensation you deserve.
So if you've been involved in a road traffic accident where an uninsured driver is to blame, Watermans No Win No Fee solicitors can help.
