Reasons you may need to make car accident injury claims in Kingston upon Thames
There are many possible causes for car accidents but some of the most common one’s are:
- Speeding. Too many people are in a rush to reach their destination and accidents which occur at higher speeds often have more serious consequences. Speed limits are there for a reason so drive with care.
- Weather. Conditions such as rain, fog, ice and snow increase the likelihood of an accident, especially if the necessary precautions are not taken. Drive slower in these conditions can help you to avoid accidents.
- Tiredness. If you are driving whilst tired then you risk falling asleep, or even having a micro nap, at the wheel. This can put your life and the lives of others at risk. Concentration and reaction times can also be compromised if you drive whilst tired.
- Distractions. Changing the radio station, using your mobile phone, getting distracted by the scenery or excessive talking can cause you to become distracted and cause an accident.
