Claiming from the Motor Insurers Bureau of Ireland (MIBI)*
The MIBI was set up to make sure that those injured in a road traffic accident which was caused by an uninsured motorist will get compensation.
There are specific strict rules in dealing with the MIBI.
For example, you must notify the MIBI of a claim before legal proceedings are issued. In dealing with the MIBI it is very similar to dealing with the insurance company except that it is slightly more complex. The same way of dealing with cases through PIAB will be dealt with in dealing with the MIBI. The MIBI cases where they are going to be paying out for the injuries sustained by you are still ones that must go through the PIAB
