Do you need to make a ‘no win, no fee’ Dacorum compensation claim because of a fault with your car?
Unfortunately, road traffic accidents can occur even when people’s vehicles are working fine. If a driver makes a mistake or doesn’t see another vehicle, they may inadvertently cause an accident, even if there wasn’t an issue with their vehicle.
However, when a vehicle is faulty or doesn’t perform as it is expected to do so, it may mean that accidents are more likely to occur. If, for example, your brakes fail to work, you may unable to avoid hitting the vehicle in front of you. This could cause a serious accident and people could suffer from serious injuries as a result.
Whilst you may feel responsible for the incident, you may not actually be held legally responsible for the incident if a fault with your vehicle caused the incident to occur. If the car is relatively new, it may be that a manufacturing fault has caused the fault and you could go on to make a ‘no win, no fee’ Dacorum compensation claim against your manufacturer for any injuries you sustained. However, if you had recently taken your vehicle to a garage or a mechanic and they haven’t carried out the work safely, it may mean that they are responsible for the incident. If so, you would need to make your ‘no win, no fee’ Dacorum compensation claim against them.
It’s important to remember that it isn’t just the driver who can be eligible to make a ‘no win, no fee’ Dacorum compensation claim following an accident. If you were carrying passengers in the vehicle and that time of the incident and they were also injured, they may be able to make ‘no win, no fee’ Dacorum compensation claims as well.
