If you’ve been injured as a result of a North Kesteven car accident that was caused by a vehicle defect, either to your car, or any other car involved in the accident, you may well be entitled to raise a personal injury claim for compensation. Accident Advice Helpline (AAH), are one of the UK’s leading authorities on personal injury cases, claims and compensation.
Car manufacturer design faults
The build quality on cars today is better than it has ever been. But even so, every once in a while, a vehicle manufacturer issues a warning letter to all its dealers, and people who have recently bought a car model that has subsequently been found to have developed a fault of some kind.
The call-back notices are usually issued in good time; but not always. Sometimes an innocent car owner, and anyone who happens to be travelling in their vehicle at the time, gets involved in an accident caused by just such a defect, and sustains an injury. If the incident took place before the call-back letter was issued, any injury victims will be entitled to launch a claim for compensation.
Faulty servicing or repair work
It’s not just car manufacturers who are to blame for vehicle defects, garages that carry out repairs and do servicing can sometimes be at fault too. If a particular garage services a vehicle and their work is below standard or they fail to spot a defect which later causes an accident in which somebody get injured, then the garage would be responsible and could be sued.
Claiming compensation by AAH for your North Kesteven car accident injury
If the North Kesteven car accident that caused your injury was caused through a vehicle defect that was not your fault, then you would be both legally and morally entitled to launch a claim for compensation.
