You can make claims for road accidents that weren’t actually caused by another driver, cyclist or pedestrian. Many people are aware that they can claim compensation for an accident which was caused by the negligence of someone else, but don’t realise that this negligence may have happened before they even got into the car. Here are some of the reasons that compensation solicitors in Sowerby Bridge may be able to help you to claim compensation for the negligence of a garage, seller or car dealership.
If a seller didn’t give you the correct information
The seller of a used car has to tell you everything that you need to know about the car, including the car’s accident and breakdown history, and anything wrong with it which makes it difficult to drive or is likely to go wrong. If they leave this information out to get you to pay a higher price, and you later have an accident, you should be able to make a claim against the seller.
If a garage has not serviced a car properly
If you send your car for an MOT or service and the garage sends it back with a problem which later causes an accident, you should have a really good case for compensation against them. It should be fairly easy for your solicitor to make the claim on your behalf as well, after another mechanic has worked out what the problem was and how long it had been present.
If you have been sold a vehicle which shouldn’t be on the road
Many vehicles fail their MOT each year and if you are sold a car which has failed its MOT it is the fault of the seller if you have an accident. Again, this should be included in the car’s history so if the seller doesn’t provide this you should ask why.
