    Thanet road traffic accidents


    Some Thanet road traffic accidents, (thankfully not many), are caused by cars that have design faults. These faults have in effect been “built in” and obviously at the time of manufacture, are unknown. They often only come to light later, when a number of accidents and/or complaints are recorded that lead manufacturers to carry out investigations that highlight a general design fault – often a particular component that is under spec.

    Recall issued by Toyota

    Vehicle recalls do happen from time to time; take for example when Toyota issued a recall notice in April 2014 in respect of 3 issues:

    • Air bags
    • Seat rails
    • Steering columns

    The cars affected were:

    • RAV4
    • Hilux
    • Yaris
    • Urban Cruisers

    The total number of vehicles involved was 35,124. No accidents had yet been reported with regard to these faults, but Toyota weren’t taking any chances having been previously criticised for their speed of response.

    Check to see if your car model is the subject of a recall notice

    Car recall notices happen more often than you might think. In many instances, the problems are minor in terms of safety risks. For example, a faulty electric window switch. If you are concerned that you may have missed a recall notice involving your model of car, there is a Government website that you can visit to check.

    Put your trust in Accident Advice Helpline

    If you have been unlucky enough to be injured because of a design fault in your car or any other car, you are advised not do not deal with the car manufacturer directly, but to appoint a good compensation claim specialist like us; Accident Advice Helpline, and trust us to get the maximum amount of compensation for your injury. Follow Esther Rantzen’s advice when she says, “Take my advice, you can trust Accident Advice Helpline to look after you.”

    Getting an idea of the amount of injury compensation for Thanet road traffic accidents

    To get an idea of a “ball-park” compensation figure for any injuries sustained in Thanet road traffic accidents, you can go to our website and make use of our HOW MUCH calculator. It will verify if your claim appears to be valid, and will then issue you with an estimate. It only takes about 30 seconds on average to be given a figure.
