No win no fee car injury claims in Thurrock
As a driver, you’ll be aware that you have certain obligations towards other road users, their passengers and pedestrians.
For the most part, these obligations refer to your conduct as a driver and it may be said that you have a duty of care towards those other people who could be affected by your driving and the way you behave as a driver.
Were you to cause or create an accident as the result of poor conduct or dangerous behaviour behind the wheel, anyone injured by your actions would have the right to make a claim for compensation through no win no fee car injury claims in Thurrock solicitors.
Your duty of care however extends far beyond your conduct on the road and also covers your vehicle. As the owner of the car you drive, you are responsible for its’ upkeep and maintenance and it is your responsibility to ensure that the car is suitable for the open highway. This means that you must not only ensure that you adhere to the law by taking your car for its’ annual MOT but also that you carry out inspections personally to ensure that the car is in full working order.
Were you to fail to do so and the car was involved in an accident, you as the owner of the vehicle could be held responsible for any injuries caused to other road users. They would have the right to make a claim for compensation through no win no fee car injury claims in Thurrock solicitors for their injuries.
When you hire a vehicle, the same rules apply. The company or business which owns the vehicle you are leasing has a responsibility, not only to other road users, but also to you as their customer, to ensure that the vehicle they are loaning to you is safe and fit for use on the road. Were they to fail to do so, you would have the right to contact no win no fee car injury claims in Thurrock solicitors to seek a claim for compensation.
In the past, the most common vehicles to hire were cars or vans. There are many reasons to hire a car or van. You might be going on holiday, moving house or simply require a larger vehicle than the one you normally drive. However, many people now hire mobility vehicles to help them with their shopping and socialising.
These vehicles carry exactly the same obligation to the company which leases them out as they must also be roadworthy, safe for the person driving or operating them and safe for other road users. This means that were anything to go wrong with the mobility vehicle, you as the driver along with any members of the public injured as a result would have the right to make a claim for compensation through no win no fee car injury claims in Thurrock.
