    Car auction safety checks: Safety belt features


    When purchasing a new car, it is always important to get a feel for the vehicle and check that the safety belt is working properly. If you have been the victim of a car crash accident that was due to a safety defect, you could be eligible for compensation.

    Check your car’s safety features regularly

    To minimise the risk of a road accident, some of the most important safety checks to conduct on a vehicle include ensuring you know where the toolkit is, checking the engine oil performance, and making sure your windscreen and screenwash are in good working order.

    Do you need to make a claim for a car-related injury that wasn’t your fault?

    Although most car companies and auctioneers perform rigorous safety checks on all vehicles, occasionally, some safety defects may be missed. If you have suffered a car accident injury due to a defective seatbelt, you could seek financial compensation. The severity of your injuries and the impact on your standard of living will affect the level of compensation you could be entitled to.

    Founded many years ago, Accident Advice Helpline has given justice to all kinds of non-fault injury victims, from people making a car crash claim to people seeking repetitive strain injury compensation for a repetitive strain injury claim

    A trusted, professional team specialising in injury law

    If you’ve been the victim of accidents at work, you may also be entitled to receive compensation. Employees injured by faulty equipment may be able to make a work accident claim related to an industrial setting, while workers experiencing injuries for tasks that they weren’t trained for may also be eligible to make a claim. To qualify, your non-fault injury must have taken place in the last three years.
