Claiming for road traffic accidents in East Ayrshire
The United Kingdom has over a quarter of a million miles worth of driveable roads, on which some 35 million vehicles are driven each year. Amongst these 35 million vehicles are vehicles that should not be driven by anyone because of their condition. A number of road traffic accidents in East Ayrshire each year are the result of vehicles which are not roadworthy.
As the victim of a road traffic accident who was a passenger in a vehicle that was not roadworthy, you could be entitled to make a personal injury claim if your injuries were sustained through no fault of your own.
Were you injured in road traffic accidents in East Ayrshire?
Since 1st October 2014, despite opposition by many motoring groups, it is no longer necessary to display a valid tax disc in the windscreen of your motor vehicle. One of the ways in which the police could detect a vehicle that was not roadworthy, was through displaying of a valid tax disc. Now that the law has changed, the number of vehicles that are not roadworthy on the roads of the United Kingdom has increased.
Being able to drive a vehicle on the road without displaying a tax disc increases the likelihood of you, as a passenger, being involved in an accident in a vehicle that has no valid MOT. Without an MOT, no motor vehicle should be driven on the roads of the United Kingdom; not only is it illegal but it can be dangerous.
Driving a vehicle without an MOT increases the chances of being injured in a vehicle that has worn or badly fitted seatbelts or airbags, or an external structure that could crumple on the impact of a collision with another vehicle.
