The latest Untraced Drivers` agreement of 2017 applies to accidents that occurred on or after March 1, 2017. For accidents that occurred on February 14, 2003 or after March 1, 2017, the 2003 Untraced Drivers` Agreement applies and, prior to that, claims that did not involve drivers not without a trace are covered by the Untraced Drivers` Agreement 1996. Endorsements were reached in 2008, 2011, 2013 and 2015. These are interesting moments for the MIB. In addition to Vnuk`s questions, the Cameron-v-Hussain-Ors case was tried by the Court of Appeal in December 2016 and the verdict is expected shortly. In this case, the applicant attempted to seek compensation from the car insurer for the vehicle involved in the accident, despite the fact that the driver of the vehicle was not identified. If the applicant succeeds, there would be a substantial change in the way these cases are handled. The decision in favour of the applicant could lead to these cases being brought before the courts, which would result not only in a further amendment to the recent agreement, but also the potential for a significant additional cost to the MIB. My questions are; 1) Is this a Cameron v. Hussain case in which I should expose against “an unknown person”. and the insurer that was identified during my initial research? 2) Do I only have to expose against the person identified as the seller in the sales bill? 3) Is it just an unsured driver requirement? 4) I miss the point completely and your expertise and advice would be greatly appreciated.
The 2017 agreement also requires the MIB to seek permission for any comparison in cases involving a minor or protected person. While the rights under the Uninsured Drivers Agreement are covered for fixed CPR 45 fees, rights holders who claim rights under the Untraced Drivers Agreement are not entitled to the costs under the CPR45. However, the Untraced Drivers Agreement provides that MIB contributes to its costs. The 2017 agreement provides for a new royalty regulation and gives applicants the opportunity to demand a higher contribution in cases of exceptional complexity. The 2015 uninsured driver contract also received an endorsement to bring it into compliance with the new Untraced Drivers` agreement. Unsecured and untraceable driver contracts meet the UK`s European obligations to provide compensation for victims of accidents caused by uninsured or unsured drivers. All car insurers in the UK are members of the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB) and participate in the fund through a tax. The MIB is responsible for the participation and distribution of the fund in accordance with the agreements. The MIB acts as an insurer of last resort under agreements with the Ministry of Transport. These agreements are reviewed from time to time to reflect the necessary changes. The 2017 agreement does not specify whether qualified outpatient treatment will include rehabilitation sessions and whether these sessions should be performed by a hospital or whether they could be requested in private.
