Do you need to make a personal injury auto claim?
Many people who need to make a personal injury auto claim will have been hurt in a road traffic accident or collision. Although it’s perfectly possible to make a personal injury auto claim following this type of incident, providing it wasn’t your fault, there are a number of additional instances which may give rise to a personal injury auto claim as well.
If, for example, you purchase a new car and are involved in a collision because of a fault or mechanical failure, you may find that the manufacturers are liable and you could make a personal injury auto claim against them.
Although manufacturers do submit their vehicles for numerous safety checks, sometimes things can be missed. In such cases, the vehicles are normally recalled but often the failure doesn’t become apparent until an incident or injury has occurred.
Whilst you may not be able to tell whether or not your vehicle has a fault straightaway, often road traffic accident investigators will be able to tell whether or not the car was faulty at the time of the incident.
If, however, you suffered injuries in a road traffic accident caused by someone or something else, you may still be able to make a personal injury auto claim and obtain compensation.
It’s important to remember that there can be time limits on how long you’ve got to make a personal injury auto claim following an incident. Whilst most people prefer to make a claim soon after the incident itself, you may want to wait weeks or months until you feel ready to make a claim.
Providing you make your personal injury auto claim within three years of the incident, it’s likely that we’ll still be able to help you obtain compensation but if you leave it any longer than this, you could miss out on your chance to make your personal injury auto claim.
