How to avoid traffic jams and claim compensation for a Blaby car accident
Have you had a Blaby car accident? Traffic jams are one of the most frustrating things that a driver has to deal with on the roads. Generally, if you are driving you will be on your way to a destination, and getting stuck in a traffic jam means that you might be late, or even that you won’t make your appointment at all. In some cases, there are ways to steer clear of traffic jams well in advance, and if you have advanced warning you can simply plot another route. However, if you come across one unexpectedly you will need to think carefully about how to get out of the situation.
Traffic jams are a prime reason for a Blaby car accident as well, as being stuck in traffic can make drivers act recklessly, and perform moves and manoeuvres that they otherwise wouldn’t. If you have been involved in a Blaby car accident which was the fault of another driver you may be able to claim compensation back for your injuries.
The best way to claim compensation for a Blaby car accident is to call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile, and speak to the friendly, helpful team about what has happened. The team will be able to talk you through your Blaby car accident and what happened to cause it, in order to help you to decide whether or not you are eligible for a compensation claim. They will then pass you over to our experienced personal injury lawyers who can work with you to get you the compensation you deserve.
- Listen to the radio. Although most people will tell you that you shouldn’t listen to the radio as you drive, as it can be distracting. In this case, it will actually help you to stay out of trouble. Listen to the local radio which will have traffic and weather reports and these can help you to avoid traffic jams and driving in bad weather conditions.
- Travel on quieter roads. If you have to travel during rush hour then this is one time when the best road to take is the quieter, less popular one. Travelling on main roads during rush hour can be asking for trouble!
- Don’t break the law. Sometimes in bad traffic jams, people will start to make illegal turns and manoeuvres in order to get out of the situation sooner rather than later. Even if you see other people doing this, you should not attempt to do it yourself as you can still be arrested for it, and get points on your licence.
- Be polite. One of the most important things to do if you are in a traffic jam is to be polite and courteous. Everyone is stressed in this situation, and being polite can save you an argument or worse.
