Claiming compensation for an accident caused by the installation of faulty brakes

Brakes are one of the most important features of a vehicle because they control the vehicle’s ability to stop, so without them your life could be in considerable danger as you could be at risk of a high speed crash. If your brakes are damaged or worn then it is important that you get them replaced as soon as possible, with the most obvious solution being to go and see a mechanic. They have a wealth of experience and can get your vehicle back in to full working order in no time, but sadly this is not always the case and you could end up suffering the consequence. If you have been in an accident which was a result of an installation of faulty brakes then you could be entitled 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 faulty tyres then you could be entitled to make a claim. Some examples of where you may look to receive compensation include:

·         Accidents which were caused by lack of brakes

·         Claims if you have been involved in a collision

·         Claims against a negligent mechanic

·         Claims against a negligent driver

·         Claims against poorly installed brakes.

Who might have been at fault in this situation?

When it comes to making a claim for compensation for being involved in an accident caused by faulty brakes then there are a number of people who may be at fault, but the most likely source would be the mechanic who installed the brakes. It is their responsibility to ensure that your vehicle is in full working order so if this has not been the case you could look to make a claim against them for negligence. Without brakes, you could end up being involved in a serious incident which could require you to have medical attention which could be very costly and force you to be hospitalised. If this applies to you then making a claim for compensation could be the best way to recoup any losses that you have incurred.
