Accident Solicitor in Welshpool


Are you planning on taking a trip somewhere at night? Whether you’re driving to an event, such as a concert, or planning on avoiding the morning rush hour on a business trip by getting to your destination the night before, you should be careful.

Night driving is dangerous

At night, visibility is reduced, and because you might be approaching your usual bedtime, you’re at risk of falling asleep at the wheel. Needless to say, if this happens, you’re likely to cause an accident.

Of course, being on the road at night puts you at risk of being the victim of an accident caused by someone who is driving when they are too tired and really shouldn’t be in control of a vehicle.

If this happens, you could get injured. Later, you could make a claim for compensation through an accident solicitor in Welshpool at Accident Advice Helpline, but it’s always best to avoid accidents – and you can certainly reduce your risk of being in an accident with the following top tips for night driving.

Night driving: Tips to avoid accidents

1) Don’t drive if you don’t have to. Could you take a bus or a train? What about a taxi? If you’re going with other people, a taxi might work out cheaper than getting a train.

2) If driving is the only option, make sure you plan your route. Take routes that you are familiar with, if possible, and if going somewhere you don’t know, leave extra time to reach your destination without having to rush.

3) Share the driving if possible. Are other people going with you? Can any of them drive your car? If they’re insured, let them take some of the strain.

4) Take regular breaks. Stop off at least every two hours – pull into a service station and have a snack and some water or a cup of tea. Get out and stretch your legs, too.

5) Avoid driving at times when you’d otherwise be in bed. If you normally fall asleep at midnight, don’t drive at midnight.

If you’re on the receiving end of the actions of someone who’s not taken any of the above advice, you might get injured and require medical treatment, either at an Accident and Emergency ward or at your GP’s surgery.

Once you’ve been treated, you should think about making a claim. You might need to take time off work, which could cause you to lose wages – and you could lose more money through paying for home helps, childminders, prescriptions, and public transport while you recover from your injuries.
