Motor Insurers’ Bureau v Lewis [2019] EWCA Civ 909 (05 June 2019)

the Court of Appeal upheld the decision of the High Court that the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) was liable to indemnify the driver of a vehicle that was being driven off road, that is on private land.

Here the claimant was struck by an uninsured vehicle while he was walking on private land and he obtained judgment against the driver and the key issue was whether the MIB was liable.

The Court of Appeal upheld the High Court’s decision that the MIB is an emanation of the state and therefore EU Directive 2009/103/EC had direct effect against it and the MIB was therefore liable to indemnify the claimant at least to the extent of the minimum cover of €1 million.
