We all know the act of driving can bring us into situations where our lives could be at risk. We have all seen the consequences of bad driving decisions that have resulted in accidents, causing injury and worse to those responsible and to other innocent parties.
In order to be a more responsible driver, it makes sense to know how to recognise dangerous driving areas that can be more treacherous to drive in. For starters, any area you are unfamiliar with has the potential to be dangerous, although familiar areas can be dangerous too if you start taking them for granted.
If you see lots of road signs or lots of street lights in a particular area (or both) this is a good sign there is additional danger around. Look at the road markings too – these are there to provide you with more information on how dangerous the road could potentially be.
Do you have the right to claim for compensation if someone else causes you to have an accident?
If someone else was negligent in their driving and caused an accident that damaged your car and/or injured you; you do have a right to put in a compensation claim for damages. This should be done under the advice of a professional injury compensation lawyer so you can be sure of taking the right steps at the right time. You have three years from the date of the incident to make such a claim, so even if something happened a while ago you may still be able to make a claim under the law.
