    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    What caused your car accident?

    When road traffic accidents occur, they are often caused by human error. If someone drives too fast, for example, they may be unable to stop in time to avoid hitting another vehicle. Alternatively, if someone fails to stop at a red light, they may collide with another road user. In some cases, a driver may simply not see another road user and collide with them as a result.

    However, not all incidents are caused by driver error. In some instances, an accident could be caused by a fault with the vehicle. If you’ve taken your vehicle to be serviced or repaired, for example, you trust that it will be returned to you in a roadworthy condition.

    If mistakes are made and your vehicle isn’t safe to drive, you may not be aware of it until you’re on the road and, by this time, it could be too late to avoid an accident occurring.

    Claiming with a lawyer in Helsby

    After a road traffic accident, an investigation is often launched. This can help to determine who was at fault and what caused the incident to occur. If you found that your breaks weren’t working prior to a collision, for example, tests can be undertaken to confirm why the fault occurred.

    If it can be shown that the vehicle was faulty, a lawyer in Helsby may be able to help you make a compensation claim against the company responsible. Although vehicle manufacturers and mechanics must work to strict guidelines in order to avoid the risk of accidents occurring, this doesn’t mean that mistakes are never made.

    If key components are left out when the car is being repaired or if tools are left in the engine, for example, it may affect the workings of the vehicle and, as a result, an accident may occur.
