What to do if you have to travel when you are ill, and how to make car accident claims in Rushmoor
Obviously if you are ill, the best thing you can do is avoid travelling at all. Travelling is rarely the most fun thing you can do with your day, as it is tiring and can make you feel ill itself. But if you are already ill it can be very miserable if you have to travel, when all you would rather be doing is sleeping and staying in bed until you feel better. If you really can’t put off travel arrangements, and need to get to your destination right away, here are some ways to make this journey more comfortable for you, and generally more bearable throughout.
- Get someone else to drive. If you have to get in a car when you are ill, you should never be the person driving, as if you take a turn for the worse you could easily cause an accident. Make sure that someone else is driving if you do have to get in the car, otherwise choose another mode of transport.
- Take lots of breaks. Travelling is tiring and can make you feel more ill, so if you do have to travel you should try to split up your journey as much as possible so that you can sit down and rest for a while in between journeys.
- Postpone your trip. You may not be able to postpone it for long, but if you have something like food poisoning, even 12 hours will make all the difference, and you should be on the road to recovery by the time you start your journey.
- Sleep. Bring a blanket and pillow and try to sleep through the journey. Your body needs more sleep when you are sick anyway, and sleeping through the journey means that you don’t feel the toll it is taking on you quite as much.
If you cause an accident because you are ill, you will have to pay for the damage on your insurance, and may be the subject of car accident claims in Rushmoor against you, because being ill is not an excuse for causing accidents. However, you should be able to make car accident claims in Rushmoor if you have been injured in a road accident that was not your fault.
