Full investigation into all aspects of the case is key in road traffic accidents claims
Mr M. was injured as a result of a road traffic accident in which a third party driver collided with the side of his vehicle.
Previous solicitors wrongly claim to Motor Insurer's Bureau (MIB)
Mr M. had went to another firm of solicitors originally to make a road traffic accident claim.
His previous Solicitors had informed him that after carrying out liability investigations; it seemed that the third party was not insured at the time of the accident.
In light of this information, his solicitors had intimated a claim to the Motor Insurer's Bureau (MIB) under their uninsured driver’s scheme and the MIB were denying liability.
Switched road traffic accident claim to Digby Brown
Mr M. asked if Digby Brown would take over the handling of his road traffic accident claim as he had been a client in the past and was impressed by the level of service provided.
After carrying out our own investigations, we established that insurance was in fact in place.
Our solicitors raised a claim against the other driver's insurers, and, after failing to receive a response from the insurers, we raised an action in the Sheriff Court.
Mr M.'s case settled shortly thereafter.
