Accident Solicitor in Tyne and Wear


Whenever you’re driving, you always need to be aware of what’s going on around you. You should be fit to drive, too – and your car should be completely roadworthy.

As necessary as these things are at any time of year, they are particularly important in winter, when there is less daylight and driving conditions are made even more difficult by rain, ice and snow.

If you were to ask an accident solicitor in Tyne and Wear about driving in winter, their immediate reaction would probably be: “Don’t do it!”

But of course, a ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitor at Accident is as aware as anyone else that life has to go on during winter. If you have to drive in winter, you will obviously make sure that you are up to the task – but you need to make sure your car is, too.

Drive safely in winter

If you pay attention to these areas, you will decrease your chances of having an accident.

1) Lights – make sure they’re all working and clean. Wipe off any dirt, and regularly check that the bulbs light up when they should.

2) Battery – this runs the risk of losing charge, especially if you do a lot of short trips or stop-start journeys. Invest in a battery charger if you need one.

3) Windows – the windscreen and all other windows should be clear so as to give you an unobstructed view of everything that’s going on around you. The mirrors should also be clear. Clean all the glass regularly, as well as your wiper blades.

4) Brakes – get them checked before the bad weather sets in. Your brakes need to be working properly at all times, especially in winter.

5) Tyres – last, but definitely not least, you need to make sure your tyres have adequate tread for winter driving. The legal minimum may be acceptable, but you should consider replacing your tyres before they reach that level.

An accident solicitor in Tyne and Wear could help you

Of course, doing all these things could stop you from causing an accident, but what if you encounter another driver who’s driving a car that isn’t in proper working order? They might collide with you, causing you to get injured – perhaps seriously.
