Going on a long journey in the car? Whether you’re going on holiday, off to visit the family, or taking a business trip, you should make sure that you’re prepared.
Prepared for what?
You might get into an accident, which could cause you injury. Britain’s roads are pretty safe, but there are always people out there who drive recklessly or don’t pay attention when they’re manoeuvring – and they might cause a crash in which you’re the one affected.
What should I do if that happens?
First of all, you should stop at the scene, exchange details, and involve the police if necessary. Then you should get medical attention as soon as possible.
After that, you could claim compensation through an accident solicitor in West Sussex.
I want to avoid accidents – what should I do?
Make sure you do everything properly. Don’t drink and drive, don’t drive if you’re too tired, and make sure you drive with due care and attention.Open Claim Calculator
Also, make sure your car is roadworthy.
What preparations should I make for a long trip?
You should make some simple checks:
- Tyres – do they have sufficient tread and are they properly inflated?
- Brakes – do they work properly?
- Lights – are they clean, and do they all work?
- Fluids – is the oil level correct, and is there sufficient washer fluid?
- Windows – are they all clean and clear?
