Who is responsible for your road traffic accident?
When a road traffic accident or collision occurs, it could be for a number of reasons. If you’ve suffered injuries as a result of the incident and you’re hoping to make a compensation claim with a personal injury solicitor in Ludlow, you’ll need to identify who or what caused the incident in order to be able to move forward with your claim.
If another driver has hit your vehicle, they may well be held liable and an injury solicitor in Ludlow could help you to make a claim against them. If they didn’t see you, despite you driving legally or they were using a mobile phone whilst driving, for example, it’s likely that they will be held responsible for the incident and you could obtain compensation from them.
However, if they hit you because they were swerving to avoid another vehicle, it could be the other driver who is held responsible and you would need to pursue them for compensation with help from a personal injury solicitor in Ludlow.
Of course, there are times in which another driver isn’t at fault at all. If, for example, you’ve taken your car in for repairs and these aren’t carried out properly, the substandard work could mean that your car is at risk of malfunctioning which could cause an accident or collision. In this case, the company responsible for carrying out the repairs could be held responsible for any injuries which occurred as a result and an injury solicitor in Ludlow could help you to make a claim against them.
Unfortunately, even newer cars aren’t exempt from experiencing problems. Some manufacturers even have to issue recalls because of problems with new cars so it could be a mechanical or design fault which causes an incident, even if the car you’re travelling in is relatively new.
