    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Accident solicitor in Pembroke Dock

    Road traffic accidents can be minor or serious. Some involve just a “knock”, but even such a small incident could cause whiplash. Others may involve multiple cars and high speeds, and result in the attendance of all the emergency services.

    Accident risk in winter

    In the harshness of winter, the risk of having an accident on the road is higher – ice is an obvious factor, of course, but there is less light during the day and what light there is can cause glare (the sun appears lower in the sky).

    The roads are also affected by the weather. Potholes happen because of the repeated freezing and thawing, so you could find that you’re driving on a road surface that isn’t of very good quality.

    What to do if you have an accident

    You could be eligible to claim compensation through an accident solicitor in Pembroke Dock if you have been the victim of an accident that was caused by someone else, and you got injured.

    Contact Accident Advice Helpline to start your claim when you feel ready to do so – after you have had your injuries treated, of course.

    But there are things you need to take care of at the scene of the accident first. Exchange your contact details – name, address and insurance company – with the other driver, and involve the police, if necessary. It goes without saying that you are obliged to stop at the scene!

    In case of emergency: some winter essentials

    If you’re driving in winter, you should consider putting some items in the car before you set off. This is what RoSPA recommends:

    • A tow rope, shovel and wellington boots
    • A hazard warning triangle
    • De-icing equipment (fluid or spray, plus a scraper)
    • First aid kit plus torch
    • Warm clothes, emergency food and drink rations, and a car blanket
    • A fully charged mobile phone

    If you have these things with you, you will be better placed to deal with the aftermath of an accident.

    Contacting an accident solicitor in Pembroke Dock

    If you’re unlucky enough to be the victim of an accident that someone else has caused, and you get injuries, then you will obviously need to seek medical treatment as soon as possible.

    Once this has been done, you can get on the phone to Accident Advice Helpline and make a claim against the other driver’s insurer through a no-win, no-fee accident solicitor in Pembroke Dock.
