Many people come to the UK from all over the world to see our beautiful architecture, scenery and city life. Many people who are from the UK also like to take weekend breaks in the country to get away from everyday city life. There are plenty of places to go hiking or cycling for those who enjoy the outdoors, and there are also lots of rural roads if you prefer to drive around the country. Rural roads may seem quieter than city routes but they do have their own hazards which drivers should look out for.
Country routes may not seem as busy therefore many drivers take advantage of this and increase their speeds. However, these roads have a number of bends and turns which could surprise drivers and there may be cars just around the corner. It is best to stay just below the speed limit in anticipation of these bends. Driving on these roads at night can also be hazardous as the area may not be well-lit therefore reducing your speed will help you to stay more aware of your surroundings. As it is a rural route, there may be cyclists or pedestrians around who could be vulnerable if you are driving recklessly. If you have been involved in a car accident on holiday, you could be entitled to compensation.
When to make a claim
If you are involved in a car accident on holiday and the other driver was at least partly to blame for your injuries, you could be entitled to compensation from the driver’s insurance company. If they have been driving at dangerous speeds or they have made a poor decision which caused your crash, you could hold them liable for their actions. If you need advice regarding your claim, Accident Advice Helpline could assist you.
