    Faulty engine management system accident advice


    If you need faulty engine management system accident advice, Accident Advice Helpline is the organisation to call.  We have staff available round the clock, ready to discuss situations like this. The advice we give is free and doesn’t entail any obligation to claim with us. Our staff are friendly and won’t pressure you. They can help you to understand your legal options.

    Tracing responsibility

    You probably won’t be surprised to hear that you can’t claim compensation if your engine management system develops a fault if it hasn’t been properly looked after. If, for instance, it has been damaged by damp, the person at fault could be the person responsible for maintaining the vehicle, whether that’s a garage mechanic or you personally.  In this event it will be necessary to identify who worked on that part of the vehicle last, before starting a claim.

    Usually, engine management system faults can be traced back to the manufacturer, whether hardware or software is to blame. If you suspect this is the case, it’s advisable for you to start a claim as soon as possible. This is because it can help to draw attention to a problem that may also affect other vehicles. If a number of vehicles turn out to be faulty, you actions could help to get others off the road before somebody else is hurt.

    How claiming works

    Although there is no obligation when you seek faulty engine management system accident advice from us, we can help you to make a claim if you want to. This will normally need to be done within three years of your accident happening, and you will need to have seen a doctor about your injuries.

    We only take claims on a no win, no fee basis. This means that you won’t need to have money to begin with and if we lose your case, you won’t need to pay us.

    Our no win, no fee approach gives us extra motivation to supply you with the best possible legal support. We can provide you with a specialist road traffic accident solicitor and we’ll do our best to ensure it’s someone who has dealt with cases similar to yours in the past. We prioritise skill over location, so we may not be able to find someone in your immediate area, but you will be able to deal with your solicitor by phone so there won’t be much travel involved. We realise that some accident victims are not able to travel, or find it very difficult.

    Winning compensation

    Compensation payouts are aimed at helping you get your life back to normal, as far as possible. They can cover for lost earnings if you were unable to work for a while, or even give you money to live on if you are likely to have difficulty working in the long term. They can pay for help with short and long term disabilities and, if your doctor thinks you need it, they can pay for counselling to help restore your confidence so that you can get back behind the wheel.
