    Faulty clutch accident claim


    Faulty clutch accident claim

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we have an excellent track record of winning compensation for clients making faulty clutch accident claims. If you have been involved in a car accident and you suspect that a faulty clutch was to blame, you are advised to speak to us. You might have a valid claim for compensation if you can prove that someone else was responsible for the failure.

    Clutch failure can have serious consequences, especially for car, truck and motorcycle drivers. A clutch that fails to engage or release correctly can end up damaging a vehicle’s transmission. Furthermore, a damaged clutch can make it difficult to control the vehicle.

    If you are unable to change gear safely, you may find it impossible to prevent or avoid a dangerous accident. A defective clutch on a motorcycle can keep you from starting the bike and can lead to a potentially fatal situation on the road.

    What causes a faulty clutch?

    Several factors can lead to clutch failure while driving. Some of the common causes are listed below:

    • Leaking or faulty oil seals
    • Broken or stretched clutch cables
    • A broken clutch lever
    • Worn out clutch disc
    • Clutch pack slipping

    It is always important to identify the exact cause of the clutch failure in order to prevent further accidents from occurring.

    Why claim compensation?

    We at Accident Advice Helpline always advise our clients to begin the claim proceedings as soon as possible. Seeking compensation is one way of bringing a sense of justice to an unfortunate situation. Although compensation will not restore your health, the pay-out you receive can go a long way towards reimbursing any expenses you have incurred because of the accident.

    If you have suffered injuries in a car accident caused by a faulty clutch we can help you claim compensation for medical costs, loss of earnings due to inability to work, pain and suffering, as well as mental anguish.

    What do I need to make a valid claim?

    In order to make a valid claim for compensation, you need to prove that someone else was responsible for the faulty clutch. This could be either the vehicle’s manufacturer, or the mechanic who carried out repairs on your vehicle.

    You are strongly advised to work with a qualified solicitor to gather enough evidence to build a strong case. It will be necessary to present your solicitor with any documents pertaining to the vehicle’s purchase, as well as any service records for work carried out on it. These documents, coupled with police and medical reports, will be attached to your compensation claim.

    Let us help you

    Due to the intricate complexities and legalities involved, it is inadvisable to pursue a compensation claim on your own. You will need the services of a personal injury solicitor and we at Accident Advice Helpline have a large team of specialists experienced in dealing with such claims.

    Contact us today by completing our online form or contacting our 24-hour helpline, and let us assist you to receive maximum compensation.
