This is the eBook version (PDF) of Guide to Motor Insurers' Bureau Claims . The print version of Guide to Motor Insurers' Bureau Claims is also available.

The tenth edition of this well established work offers a concise outline of the scope and workings of the Motor Insurers' Bureau. It explains the extent of the Bureau's liability and the procedure for recovering compensation for victims of accidents involving "hit and run" and uninsured drivers.

This new edition has been extensively updated, offering practical coverage of:

  • implementation of the Fifth EC Motor Directive.

The book includes the full text of the two agreements governing the Motor Insurers' Bureau's activities - the Uninsured Drivers' Agreement and the Untraced Drivers' Agreement - as well as the forms required to pursue such claims.
