Are you claiming compensation for crash injuries in Test Valley from your car manufacturer?
When people purchase cars or other vehicles, they often assume that they are safe to be driven on the road, but this isn’t always the case. Even if your car isn’t particularly new, you may still find that it has faults which occurred during the manufacturing process. Although manufacturers do run a series of tests on vehicles before they are launched, not all potential faults come to light, and they may not realise that their vehicles are potentially dangerous.
In some instances, manufacturers are able to recall vehicles before an accident occurs if potential fault does come to light, but unfortunately sometimes this doesn’t happen until someone has been hurt. If you’re concerned that your car could have some sort of fault, you may want to contact the manufacturer or check their website to find out if a current product recall applies to your vehicle.
Although most manufacturers will cover the cost of repairing any faults which were caused during the manufacturing process, this isn’t particularly helpful if you’ve already been hurt or suffered an injury because of it. If, for example, there was a problem with the brakes or the ABS system, you could have been involved in a serious road traffic accident because of it.
If you have been hurt because of the vehicle manufacturer, it’s likely that they will be held liable for your injuries and you could claim compensation for crash injuries in Test Valley from them fairly easily. Of course, it isn’t just the vehicle owner or the driver who could claim compensation for crash injuries in Test Valley following this type of incident. If there were passengers in the vehicle at the time of the incident and they suffered injuries, they may be able to make a claim for compensation for crash injuries in Test Valley as well.
If you suspect that a recent road traffic accident was caused by a manufacturing fault, it may be possible to have your car or van examined by independent experts. In many instances, this will provide crucial information which could help your claim for compensation for crash injuries in Test Valley.
