    Abergavenny claims

    Abergavenny claims and tips for driving in strong winds

    Many drivers think that they know what they should be doing when driving in strong winds, to avoid an accident or any damage to their car, but actually there are some very specific mistakes that you can make driving in this type of weather. Talk to us today if you need help making Abergavenny claims.

    The problem is that many people don’t understand the real dangers inherent in driving through strong winds, and this causes them to make simple mistakes which can easily lead to an accident.

    If you can learn what not to do in strong winds, then you can prove a positive example on the roads, helping to avoid dangerous driving and accidents, and keeping yourself and your car safe.

    Driving fast

    Driving against the wind or with the wind, there is no reason to try and move at speeds beyond the limit, which in this case, is even more dangerous than usual. This is because strong winds are more likely to push you off course, and if this happens whilst you are moving at speed you have much less time to correct the problem, and are almost guaranteed to have an accident.

    Driving through patches of water

    Not only can this cause your own car to flood and thus be very dangerous for you, it could also cause serious damage to any car or pedestrian that you hit with a hard spray of water.

    Follow trailers or caravans

    In fact, it is a bad idea to follow anything which is being pulled by another vehicle in strong winds, as these vehicles could easily be blown in a different direction to which ever way the other vehicle is going, potentially leaving you with some very serious damage, or even a potentially fatal accident.

    Can you make Abergavenny claims for accidents in bad weather?

    Some people feel that making Abergavenny claims after an accident which happened in bad weather is less likely to be successful. If the accident was caused by bad weather then there is no one to make Abergavenny claims against.

    Whilst this is true, in many accidents there is still a guilty party, like a driver who was behaving negligently and thus caused the accident.

    If you have been injured in the accident, you are well within your rights to consider Abergavenny claims against this driver.

    Call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 to speak to the friendly, helpful team about your accident, and find out more about the Abergavenny claims process, so that you can decide whether making a claim is the right step for you to take.
