Road traffic accidents in Cambuslang are sometimes caused by defects on vehicles, such as brakes or a steering failing. If you have purchased a new car, and this happens it could be several months after you bought the car that the failure causes a road traffic accident, but the carmakers would still be liable to pay you compensation.
Carmakers do not want road traffic accidents in Cambuslang
From time to time, most of us will have seen newspaper and internet adverts from carmakers announcing the recall of vehicles. Sometimes the number of vehicles that need attention can run into many tens of thousands and the cost to the company runs into millions.
Usually you are able to take the vehicle to a local dealer who will correct the problem at no charge to you. But the dealer has to be paid by someone, and any parts needed have to be paid for as well – this all falls on the shoulders of the manufacturer.
Depending on what the fault is, the results of not carrying out a recall could be catastrophic. Many of the faults are minor problems that are not safety issues, but that is not always the case.
If someone’s brakes failed because of a defect on the vehicle, for instance, innocent victims could be injured in road traffic accidents in Cambuslang and make compensation claims against the carmaker.Open Claim Calculator
Apart from the damage that has been caused to people, and possibly having to pay many thousands of pounds in compensation, once this has happened a few times the media could well get involved. Once news leaked that there was a safety issue with a particular car, sales would drop dramatically, and probably for all models from that manufacturer.
So although the cost of recalls runs into a great deal of money, the cost of not doing them could mean the end of the company.
