Faulty engine management system accident claim

If you wish to make a faulty engine management system accident claim, we at Accident Advice Helpline are ready to help you.

In simple terms, the engine management system is a type of electronic control unit that receives information from sensors placed at strategic points around the vehicle.

The common functions of the modern engine management system include the following:

  • Monitoring engine speed, load and temperature.
  • Providing a spark to ignite the fuel in the cylinders at the appropriate time.
  • Providing fuel to the engine in the right quantity.
  • Ensuring that the vehicle’s engine runs cleanly and efficiently under all conditions.

Faults in the EMS can be attributed to electrical, mechanical, electronic or fuel systems. Any of these can cause the vehicle to stop without warning or to lose power while being driven on the road. Depending on where and how fast the vehicle is being driven when the failure occurs, the end result might easily be an accident.

Most car owners will take their vehicle to a registered garage if an engine management system fault develops. However, sometimes the systems fault can be traced back to the manufacturer.

Who can help me with my claim?

Why do I need a solicitor?

The best person to manage your case is undoubtedly a personal injury solicitor who specialises in faulty engine management system accident claims. You will need a lawyer for the following reasons:

  • Your solicitor will know what evidence to look for and who to talk to in order to build a strong compensation case for you.
  • He or she will interpret the legal jargon and deal with the claim’s legal paperwork on your behalf.
  • The solicitor will negotiate with the defendant and represent you in a claims court should your case proceed that far.
  • Finally, hiring a solicitor gives your compensation claim a sense of seriousness.

How long will my claim take?

Compensation claim cases can often be a lengthy process. There are often numerous legal procedures to follow and lots of paperwork to process. Your solicitor also has to gather enough evidence to support your claim. This, coupled with inevitable delays from the defendants, might extend the waiting period.

A compensation claim case can take anything from a few weeks to several months to resolve. We at Accident Advice Helpline endeavour to hasten this process, so that you can receive your compensation as soon as possible.
