Accident Solicitor in Wealden


When the clocks go back in late October, it’s always a bit of a wrench. Suddenly, the sunset is an hour earlier, and when you drive home from work, you might be driving in the dark.

Driving in autumn and winter is definitely made more difficult by the darkness, but it’s not just that – there’s also rain, ice and snow to worry about. All these things can contribute to accidents, and when they happen, people get injured.

It could be you

If you get into a car accident, you might be the one who ends up with injuries. If the accident is the other driver’s fault, then you could be eligible to claim compensation through an accident solicitor in Wealden – and at Accident Advice Helpline, we can offer you the service you require on a no win no fee* basis.

But people don’t just call us to make claims. We also receive enquiries from people who want to know about how to make sure they’re as safe as possible when they’re driving in winter.

Winter driving safety

While you can’t do much about the road surface and you certainly can’t control the weather, there are two factors that you can do something about: yourself and your vehicle.

Make sure you’re fit to drive your car. Don’t drink and drive, for a start – there is a legal blood alcohol limit, but it’s advisable to drink nothing but water, tea or coffee, or soft drinks if you’re planning to drive. Also, don’t drive if you’re tired or ill. Your reactions will not be as sharp as they usually are.

The car itself needs to be in full working order for winter. Before autumn gets a foothold, why not get your car serviced? There are also some checks you can perform regularly. If you do these, you’re lowering your risk of getting into an accident:

Lights – are all the bulbs working and are they all clean? Check that they work, and wipe away any dirt so that they’re as bright as possible.

Battery – is it fully charged? Get a charger if you do a lot of short trips.

Windows – can you see through them? Make sure they’re clean – and fill up the washer bottle.

Brakes – do they work? If they’re not as responsive as they were, get them replaced.

Tyres – these need to be at the legal minimum tread depth, but it’s better to have more tread than that in winter.
