    "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."

    Unless you have an adequate level of knowledge and training, it won’t be wise to start tinkering around with your car’s engine if it develops a fault, not even if you have an instruction book telling you what you need to do. If you make a mistake, it would not be an exaggeration to say that your life could well be in danger next time you take your motor out on the road.

    It’s much better and safer to take your faulty car to a trained mechanic. If possible, try and find a local garage that specialises in dealing with the type of car you drive. Using a mechanic that only deals with the make of car you use will mean the people you’re dealing with will know your car.

    Unfortunately however, just because you’re using a well-trained mechanic, it won’t mean that a mistake won’t be made during your vehicle’s repair. There will be a chance that a mechanic is having an off day, or even that one of the parts used to fix your motor will itself be defective. If either of these two events were to materialise and you were to subsequently become injured in an accident that was not your fault, you might be able to use the services of a decent personal injury lawyer in Jacobstow.

    Mechanic mistakes and a personal injury lawyer in Jacobstow

    When you think about it, you effectively put your life in the hands of your mechanic when they repair your car. If he or she does not know what they’re doing, you could well come a cropper after they’ve worked on your car. Although you might be able to use the services of a decent personal injury lawyer in Jacobstow if this were to happen, there would still be a chance that you could be left with a very serious injury that could have ongoing effects if you were involved in a nasty crash.

    Imagine that you’ve just picked your motor up from your mechanic. All seems well and you pay him for his work. You drive your car away and head onto the motorway. After a while you notice that your steering feels a little strange, only for your steering wheel to freeze up completely. A result, you run into the back of the car in front of you, suffering some quite nasty injuries as a consequence.
