Claiming compensation for an accident caused by incorrectly sized tyres

When driving a vehicle it is important that you are in complete control because if even the slightest mistake is made then you could cause a very severe accident. You need to be focussed when driving, but as well as this your vehicle and its components need to be of a high standard, especially the tyres because if they aren’t the right type or size then you will struggle to maintain control. Depending on what vehicle you are driving, the choice of tyre can have a differing effect on performance so if the wrong tyre is used you could end up being involved in an accident, so if the incorrect tyre has been used for your vehicle then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation.

Where might I look to make a claim?

If you have been injured as a result of a car wearing incorrectly sized tyres then you could be entitled to make a claim. Some examples of where you may look to receive compensation include:

·         Claims against incorrectly sized tyres

·         Claims against a negligent mechanic

·         Injuries caused by a negligent repair job on a tyre

·         Claims against poorly maintained tyres

·         Injuries caused by a faulty tyre.

Who might have been at fault in this situation?

In general, if your vehicle has had the wrong sized tyres installed then you would be likely eligible to make a claim against either the vehicle manufacturer or the mechanic who installed the tyres. Being involved in an incident which was the result of a car wearing inappropriate tyres is a very serious issue and you shouldn’t have to suffer the consequences in silence, which is why making a claim could be the best solution for you. When it comes to making a successful claim it is important to remember that you must be able to prove yourself in court, so you should remember to take down as much information about the accident as possible.
