As responsible road users, it is important that we ensure our vehicles are safe and in good working order at all times. Whether we are using a bicycle, a motorbike, a car or a truck, there are a few basic tests that we should carry out before we start out on any journey:
- Do our brakes work properly? This is very easy to check and it is vital that we can stop our vehicle quickly and safely.
- Can our headlights be seen clearly? This is important so we can see the road ahead clearly on a dark night as well ensuring that we are visible to other road users
- If we have them, do our windscreen washers and wipers work properly? If we cannot see clearly out of our windscreens, then we could easily cause an accident. It is very important that our washer fluid is topped up regularly and that we check our wipers are in good working order
- Are the tyres safe for the road? As tyres become worn, they loose their grip on the road. This makes our vehicle much more likely to skid, especially in wet or icy conditions.
By ensuring that our vehicles are safe, we are doing our best to be responsible and safe road users. However, there are some occasions when we simply cannot avoid being involved in an accident and we may become injured through no fault of our own. When other road users are careless or distracted, then they could cause an accident and we could become the innocent victims.
Well, if you have been injured in such a collision, then you could be entitled to compensation. If your accident occurred within the last three years and you required medical attention for your injuries, then you may be able to purse car accident compensation claims in Devon.
