    Can I claim for an accident caused by a sat nav?


    Can I claim for an accident caused by a sat nav?

    Questions such as ‘can I claim for an accident caused by a sat nav?’ are fairly rare, but we do hear them. Such accidents are considered unlikely, but sat nav equipment is not infallible and there are plenty of ways in which it can go wrong, sometimes causing injury. Maybe it sent you the wrong way and there was a collision as a result, or maybe it was not fitted properly and it gave you an electric shock.

    Whatever the circumstances of your accident, if you believe that another party is responsible for it then you can make a personal injury claim. It is very important that you make a claim for a number of reasons:

    • You might be entitled to financial compensation as a result of your accident caused by a sat nav and this could help you and your family to get back on your feet
    • You could also ensure that a similar accident does not befall other people
    • You will receive the acknowledgement that something should have been done to prevent your accident
