Diesel leak results in car accident compensation claim

A mother has launched a Scottish car accident compensation claim after suffering serious personal injuries in an A90 crash.

The woman had been driving with her two daughters when her car skidded and crashed close to the entrance of the St Fergus gas terminal in 2006. All three of the passengers sustained personal injuries in the car accident.

It was later revealed that the woman had skidded on diesel which had leaked from a Land Rover Discovery and she is now seeking compensation from the driver of that vehicle.

She is also making a claim against the company who replaced the cylinder head on the Land Rover prior to the accident as well as the company which sold the part.

The Court of Session Outer House heard that the driver of the Land Rover had driven three miles without incident and he only realised there was a leak as he passed the gas terminal on the A90. However he also admitted to the court that the vehicle had skidded on two occasions that same day.

It has not yet been reported whether the car accident compensation claim has been successful.
