Claiming compensation for an accident caused by negligent car repairs

If you have suffered an accident as a result of poor car repairs then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation. Whenever you take your car in for repairs it is natural to expect a high standard of work to be undertaken, because you know that any mistake could result in you being involved in a serious incident. Unfortunately this isn’t always the case and you could end up falling victim of a negligent car repairman. It is their responsibility to ensure that the repairs are completed in conjunction with appropriate health and safety laws, so if they have allowed you to use your vehicle despite it being unsafe to drive then you could look to claim against them.

What instances could I look to make a claim?

There are a number of instances where you could be at risk of sustaining an injury as the result of negligent car repairs, with some common examples of where this could occur including:

·         Accidents involving faulty tyres

·         Claims if your brakes are damaged or unresponsive

·         Claims if you have suffered from whiplash

·         Claims if the mechanic failed to carry out an acceptable standard of work.

Who might I look to claim against in this situation?

When it comes to making a claim for an accident caused by a negligent car repairs then it is important that you can prove their actions resulted in your injury. If your vehicle suffers a mechanical fault then your health could be put in considerable danger, especially if you are travelling at speed as you could easily lose control of the vehicle which could result in a number of dangerous scenarios. It is your mechanic’s responsibility to ensure that repairs are of the highest standard, so if they have failed to comply with this then you could be entitled to receive a huge payout.
