    "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."

    Winchester car accident


    If you’ve purchased a new car and just driven it away off the forecourt of a dealership, you’ll be entitled to expect a fair old bit of use out of it before something goes wrong. This is why cars come with pretty decent warranties; if you’re spending that amount of money on a single item, it’s only fair that any problems that occur soon after you’ve made your purchase are put right without you having to put your hand in your pocket.

    In most cases, you typically won’t have a problem with a brand new car for quite a while, assuming you treat it with respect and make sure you’re not doing anything that might result in an issue developing.

    But sometimes, design faults with cars can result in drivers becoming injured in a Winchester car accident that was not their fault.

    Car design errors and Winchester car accident solicitors

    It’s likely you will have seen large-scale car recall notices in the media. This happens when a car maker discovers there might be an issue with a vehicle model it was selling and wants to avoid the possibility of one of its customers having a Winchester car accident and taking some form of personal injury action. This is a hugely expensive business, but a lot cheaper than having to shell out a lot more money to people who have ended up getting injured.

    If you were to be injured in an accident that was not your fault in a new motor car and a Winchester car accident solicitor could prove that a fault was the cause or your misfortune, there will be chance that you might well be in line for a personal injury compensation pay-out.

    Imagine that as soon as you’d taken your car out for the first time that its brakes failed, causing you to slam into the back of another vehicle at a junction. If it could be proved that the problem with your brakes was down to a design fault, you could be in a good position with regards to seeking recompense for your suffering.
