You can claim against the other driver even if he was not insured. There is an
organisation called the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB) who you can claim against. You
should have a solicitor to make that claim for you because the MIB have some rules
that it is easy to get wrong. The solicitor will know what needs to be done. You and
your girlfriend could have a valuable claim as you had nasty injuries. These cases
can take anything between 12 and 36 months to resolve. How much you get depends on
what the injuries were and what losses you have but from what you have said you
could claim several thousand pounds.
