Road accidents can happen for lots of different reasons, but in most cases someone is to blame, meaning that it is possible to make accidental injury claims in Test Valley if you are injured and the accident was not your fault.
In most road accidents, the fault will come down to one of the drivers on the road doing something that they shouldn’t, such as speeding or driving while intoxicated. However, there are some situations where the problem was with the car itself, and in this case you may be able to claim compensation from your mechanic or the person who sold you the car. Reasons that you may be able to claim against these people include:
When someone has lied about the car
This may be a mechanic having said that they have fixed or replaced a part of the car that they have not, or a car dealer neglecting to tell you about something to do with the car’s history that makes it hazardous.
Make sure that you use a reputable mechanic at all times and ask for full information from the car dealer so that this will not happen to you.
When the work has been done badly
The mechanic you use may have done what they said that they were going to, but if the work has been done quickly or badly then it may still cause problems which could then cause accidents.
When you have an accident, go to a different mechanic to find out what the problem was and how to fix it, and this should give you an idea as to whether or not the original work done was up to scratch.
