Do you need to make car accident injury claims in Hertsmere because of a faulty exhaust?
When car engines are working efficiently, any by-products, such as the toxic smoke produced by the engine, are channelled away from the vehicle via the exhaust pipe. If the exhaust pipe fails, you may notice it leaking or you may be aware that it’s producing a loud noise.
Although exhaust pipes may need to be replaced on older vehicles, they should be working properly on newer models. If something does go wrong with your exhaust pipe, it’s essential that you take your car to a garage or a mechanic so that it can be examined. If it is left untreated, it could potentially become dangerous.
If, for example, your exhaust pipe fails to work properly, dangerous chemicals and fumes could leak into the vehicle and the driver and passengers could become ill as a result. Often, exposure to these chemicals can lead you to feel dizzy, faint or nauseous.
If you passed out whilst driving or were unable to navigate the vehicle correctly, you could crash or collide with another vehicle. If the cause of the accident is held to be a faulty or malfunctioning exhaust pipe, there is a chance that you could make car accident injury claims in Hertsmere.
If it hadn’t been fitted correctly, for example, you may be able to make a compensation claim against the mechanic or company responsible. Similarly, if you own a brand new vehicle, you may be able to make a claim against the manufacturer.
