Abstract

Facts: Ms Tiffany Moreno, a UK national, was - while on holiday in Greece - struck by a car as she walked along a road. She sustained serious injuries. The car was registered in Greece; however, the driver, who was at fault, possessed no driving licence and the vehicle was not subject to insurance cover. Given that a motor accident victim has often no likelihood of recovering damages from an uninsured driver, EU law - through the motor vehicle insurance Directives - provides a means of protection (Directive 2009/103/EC relating to insurance against civil liability in respect of the use of motor vehicles, and the enforcement of the obligation to insure against such liability). Each member state is required to have established a central guarantee fund from which the innocent victims of negligent uninsured drivers may seek compensation. In the UK, the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) is the body that undertakes this responsibility. The relevant transposing law is the Motor Vehicles (Compulsory Insurance) (Information Centre and Compensation Body) Regulations (MV Regs) 2003 SI No 37
