Winter Accidents: Miss-sold winter tyres

As winter approaches, for a car owner it is important to take precautions to avoid accidents on the road. A road traffic accident in winter can be terrifying, with snowy and icy conditions causing additional hazards and leaving drivers feeling particularly vulnerable to variables that are out of their control.

It is in times like these that drivers often turn to experts to seek advice, equipment and materials to reduce the element of risk when they are out and about on the roads.

Risks on the road: miss-sold winter tyres

Individuals who live in areas which are prone to heavy snow and extreme weather conditions in winter are advised to fit winter tyres for the colder seasons, to reduce the risk of accidents on the road.

Should you choose to change your tyres, if a dealer sells you inappropriate or low-quality goods, they have failed in their legal obligation to ensure that the product they have sold is safe and fit for purpose. This is a case of miss-sold tyres.

Should you sustain an injury due to a road traffic accident due to miss-sold tyres, you may be able to claim compensation from the retailer for product liability.
