Help make your journey into work accident free

Travelling to work whether by bus, train, car, cycling or walking, can often be long and a journey that not many people particularly enjoy. During rush hour it can also be very stressful and this is the time when road traffic accidents happen. So here is our guide to making your journey to work accident free.

Take your time and don’t rush to avoid a car accident

When leaving for work make sure you allow plenty of time to get there. This way you will not be rushing and you can take your time and stay calm. If you are panicked and stressed, you are more likely to have a car crash because you will be focusing on whether you are going to get to work on time, and you may not see that car pulling out or that bike suddenly stopping up ahead.

So, always leave a little bit earlier for work, and if the weather is particularly bad make sure you allow even more time, as the traffic is likely to be heavier. If you take public transport you still need to plan your journey, and leave plenty of time for your journey, so that you stay calm and avoid any traffic accident claims.

Make sure you maintain your car/bike so you can get to work accident free

If you drive to work always make sure that you keep the maintenance up to date. This includes checking the oil and water levels regularly and making sure it gets an annual service to rectify any issues.

Missing out on that service could be bad news for your car or bike, and may even lead to a car accident if you ignore any signs that your car is breaking down or something unusual starts happening. In the winter you need to pay special attention to your tyres to avoid skidding, which could easily lead to a car crash if you aren’t careful.

If you do have a car accident that wasn’t your fault you may be able to make a claim. Accident Advice Helpline is a law firm which can help you through the claims process in an easy and stress free way.

Many of their clients even settle their claims without having to step foot in a court room. Speak to Accident Advice Helpline to find out if, and how much you could claim for your road traffic accident.
