Alternatively, you can download and print the Claim Notification Form by clicking here. The Claim Notification Form should be fully completed and returned to us either by email (info@mibi.ie) or by registered post. Any relevant documentation relating to the incident or the alleged offending vehicle should also be submitted along with the Claim Notification Form. Time-limits for notification of personal injury claims is two years from the date of accident.


Personal Injury Claims

The MIBI Agreement provides for the payment of compensation for personal injury claims in respect of road traffic accidents caused by unidentified vehicles.

Vehicle/Property Damage Claims

The MIBI Agreement does not extend to the payment of compensation in circumstances where damage has been caused to vehicles and/or property caused by an unidentified vehicle.

The only exception to this is when substantial personal injuries, involving an inpatient hospital stay for five days or more, are sustained as a result of the incident, subject to an excess of €500, i.e. the claimant must pay the first €500 of the damage claim.

What happens next?

On receipt of a fully completed MIBI Claim Notification Form we will commence our investigations.  Please note only the receipt by MIBI of a fully completed and signed MIBI Claim Notification Form will constitute formal notification of a claim.  Our initial investigation includes (a) establishing the facts and (b) obtaining a Garda Report.

When all requisite information is received MIBI will then pass the claim to one of our Claims Management Service Providers to continue and complete the investigation.  They will accept Injuries Board notification or service of proceedings.  In due course, following thorough investigation of the circumstances and liability, the claim will be settled by our Claims Management Service Provider, on our behalf, and compensation paid as appropriate.

Personal Injuries Assessment Board

The Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB) assesses the amount of compensation to be paid to claimants in respect of personal injury suffered by claimants injured, inter alia, in road traffic accidents.  To see more information, and to make an application to PIAB, please see https://www.piab.ie/eng/.
