A pedestrian, cyclist, motorcyclist, motorist or other road user who suffers injury due to an accident that was caused by the negligent driving of a drunk driver, can bring a personal injury claim against the drunk driver and expect to recover compensation from his insurers. By virtue of the Road Traffic Act 1988 ss 151, the drunk drivers insurers must still pay out compensation for any valid personal injury claims brought by injured third parties, even if they have grounds for invalidating the insurance policy.
