    Abercarn claims


    Next steps after you break down

    Your car breaking down is obviously not an ideal situation, but it is still less upsetting and stressful than being involved in a road accident.

    However, if you don’t know what the next steps are after you have a breakdown, you may find yourself struggling to keep yourself and your passengers safe, get your car off the road and to a garage and continue your journey.

    If your car does breakdown, here are some of the things you should bear in mind, so you can get the situation rectified.

    Don’t break down

    This may seem like a fairly obvious and unhelpful thing to say but, actually, prevention is always better than cure when it comes to breaking down in your car. Make sure that your car is serviced regularly and that you always perform basic checks before you head out on any long journey.

    Stay calm

    If you know that there is a problem which is going to force you to stop, then stay calm as much as you can. You need to get yourself off of the road and to somewhere safe to stop and wait for help to get to you, so keeping your head is key or you will not be able to do what needs doing.

    Keep yourself and passengers safe

    Whilst you call for help, get yourself and all passengers out of the left hand side of the car (so that no one is getting out into traffic) and then move away from the car so that if anything further should happen you won’t risk yourself or a passenger being injured. Call for help immediately so that no one has to sit outside for too long as well.

    How to make Abercarn claims after an accident

    You may have had an accident, or broken down and then been involved in an accident. Either way, as long as you can prove that your car was hit by a driver who was behaving negligently, you should be able to make Abercarn claims for compensation against them.

    Compensation claims can help you to pay for medical treatment and any damage to your personal possessions, both things which you may have to deal with after an accident.

    An accident can leave you in dire financial straits, so making Abercarn claims can be crucial to helping you to resolve the situation easily.
