Some of the car accident claims in Adur that Accident Advice Helpline assist clients to launch are the result of RTA’s in which a driver has failed to stop in time. The reasons for these type of accidents are sometimes mechanical; sometimes down to driver error, or are sometimes cause by something outside of a driver’s control; such as something or somebody stepping out into the road immediately in front of a vehicle without any warning.
Whatever the reason, as long as the blame can be levelled at a third party, if you’ve been injured you will be entitled to compensation.
The importance of the MOT test in relation to car accident claims in Adur
Having your car MOT (Ministry of Transport) tested is mandatory. If you’ve purchased a car from new, it will be due to have its first MOT test three years after the vehicle was first registered. You will then have to have the car retested every 12 months. The MOT test examines the condition of your car’s lighting systems, and various other mechanical details such as suspension, steering, and brakes. It also checks exhaust emissions.
If your car’s brakes require replacing, your car will fail the test. If it passes, you can assume (barring unforeseen mechanical problems), that your car’s brakes will be serviceable for a number of weeks, and possibly months, depending on their condition when they were tested.
Any car involved in car accident claims in Adur ought to have a current MOT certificate. This will significantly influence on the outcome of any claim
Although it’s not a legal requirement, you should have your car serviced every 12 months. This will ensure that any mechanical failures and defects are corrected and will also help to ensure that your car passes its next MOT test. If you do not have a current MOT certificate it will not be possible to get a replacement road tax for your vehicle, or renew your vehicle insurance. It is illegal to drive without any of this documentation in place.
