Few drivers would dispute that keeping a car on the road in the UK is a pricey business. You have to fork out for road tax, petrol, insurance and evermore expensive fuel, and that’s before you’ve even thought about maintenance costs, roadside assistance and buying a vehicle in the first place.
However, the fact that Britain’s public transport system leaves a little to be desired and can cost even more than running a car, means many people feel that they have little option but to take the hit.
The fact that motoring is so expensive can mean that some people try to cut corners. While you obviously can’t eschew car insurance or petrol, it is wise to shop around if you ever need any work done on your car.
Injured in a car accident in Bedfordshire through the faulty work of a car mechanic
If you do so, must make sure you’re using with a mechanic with a good reputation. If you decide to use a cowboy who doesn’t know what he’s doing in a bid to save a few quid, you could wind up being injured in a car accident in Bedfordshire that was not your fault.
Although there will be a chance that you might be able to sue the mechanic concerned with the aid of a decent no-win, no-fee personal injury claim solicitor if you were to be injured in a car accident in Bedfordshire that was not your fault and that occurred as a consequence of his shoddy work, it will be likely that you’d prefer to avoid being involved in an accident in the first place.
