Are you in need of an accident solicitor in Wychavon? At Accident Advice Helpline, we have a whole team of no win no fee solicitors who handle claims every day on behalf of the victims of accidents that have been caused by others.
Road traffic accidents
Many readers won’t be surprised to learn that we deal with many claims for injuries sustained in road traffic accidents. This is despite the fact that Britain’s roads are actually pretty safe, compared with roads in many other countries.
One thing that may surprise you, though, is that not all road traffic accidents are caused by people driving recklessly. Sure, aggressive driving, and driving under the influence of drink or drugs, are definitely causes of accidents – and the injuries sustained by victims can be horrific.
But sometimes, an accident solicitor in Wychavon will process a claim that has arisen because a tired driver has caused an accident.
Tiredness is a menace to motoring
The Highway Code says that you shouldn’t begin a journey if you’re tired. At Accident Advice Helpline, we can’t argue with that. We understand, though, that modern life is often stressful and we have many demands placed upon us – you might not realise you’re tired until you set off, and of course, you might become tired during your journey.
Here is some advice on combating tiredness on the road:
- If going on a long journey, rest before you set off – preferably a good night’s sleep
- Don’t drive during the night – you’d normally be asleep
- Take regular breaks when driving – stop at least every two hours, stretch your legs, drink some water, and have a snack
- Stop at a motorway service station if you feel too tired to continue your journey – and find a hotel or B&B if necessary!
Find an accident solicitor in Wychavon
You might be fine to drive, but another driver might not – and it’s because of that other driver that you might find yourself calling Accident Advice Helpline for an accident solicitor in Wychavon.
That, of course, is after you’ve been checked out at A&E or your GP’s surgery, and gone through all the steps to do with the car insurance claim. There’s no immediate hurry, but it’s best to get your claim started as soon as possible, because things will be fresh in your mind.
You also don’t want to get out of pocket by too much. It happens all too easily, when the prescription charges, home help fees, childminding fees, and taxi fares begin to mount up.
