New Car Malfunction Accident Claims and Compensation

If you’ve been involved in an accident because of a malfunction with your new car, we can help you claim compensation.

We’ll help you recover the cost of any medical treatment, equipment or rehabilitation you may need. We’ll also claim for the cost of repairs to your vehicle and replacement of any lost or damaged property. Plus, the compensation you receive can you help cover household costs, such as bills, that you’ll still have to pay even if you’re unable to work.

At Asons, we understand that money can’t remove the trauma of being involved in an accident. But, it can help you get back to the financial position you were in before the accident happened, and help you prepare for any future costs that may arise.

Speak to one of our experienced compensation claims advisors, free of charge, today on 01204 521133 or on live chat for a consultation. Alternatively, you can complete one of our claim forms or use our Compensation Calculator and we will be in touch.

Claiming Compensation for a New Car Malfunction Accident?

The statistics produced by the Department for Transport (DfT) stated that in 2012 there were 2,123 accidents caused by vehicle defects. The statistics don’t say whether those were on new cars or poorly maintained cars. However, new car malfunctions are not uncommon.

According to VOSA – the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency – between January 2013 and January 2014, there were over 700 recalls because of manufacturing issues. Not all of these were for serious, potentially life-threatening problems, but some are. For example:

  • Mercedes Benz recalled their Citan model of van because of an issue with an air bag that could prevent it from operating correctly.
  • Nissan recalled their Navarrra and Pathfinder models because of an issue with the seat-belts that could lead to a drop in performance.
  • Peugeot recalled the Bipper because of a fault with the gearbox that could end in the driver being unable to change gear.

As you can imagine, these faults could become serious issues if the drivers were involved in an accident, or they could actually cause an accident to occur. If you have been involved in an accident where you believe a new car malfunction is to blame, you should contact us for advice about claiming compensation. If you’ve suffered injuries, your car was written off or you lost other personal property in the accident, you could be entitled to claim back the financial losses you’ve incurred.

Claiming Compensation Because You Can’t Work

If you’ve been injured in a car malfunction accident, you may be unable to work. When you are employed, you’re often entitled to some kind of sickness benefit, but it won’t last long and the normal household bills will still need to be paid. Compensation can help you through this difficult time, alleviating financial worry and putting your mind at rest, allowing you to concentrate on improving your health.

The simple method to find out if you can make a claim for compensation is to contact Asons Solicitors on 01204 896848 for a confidential chat without charge or any obligation.

Be Quick…

If you want to make a claim for compensation, you need to be quick! Road traffic accident claims must be made within three years of the date the malfunction incident occurred. This is a legal requirement, and is called a statute of limitations. There are no exceptions to this rule, so it would be wise to contact Asons as soon as possible to begin a claim.

‘No Win, No Fee’

It’s natural for potential law firm clients to be concerned about how they will pay their solicitor’s fees. At Asons we work on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis, which means you pay zero fees unless we win your case for compensation. We could even source you ‘interim payments’ if you are financially disadvantaged by the new car malfunction accident while we handle your case.
