Car accidents compensation claims can be divided into several categories. Some of these are:
- Car accidents compensation claims – wet road conditions
- Car accidents compensation claims – icy road conditions
- Car accidents compensation claims – dry road conditions
- Car accidents compensation claims – snowy road conditions
Motorists have to learn how to drive safely in all the above weather conditions so that they can avoid causing an accident. If you have been injured in a car accident that was not your fault, you may be able to claim compensation.
Car accidents compensation claims – driving in wet road conditions
There are some simple ways of avoiding accidents in wet condition. Some of them are:
- Slow down – it takes much longer to stop in wet road conditions and poor visibility
- Do not drive too close to the vehicle in front – this will give you extra space to slow down.
- Keep your tyres in good condition so that they can grip the road
- Keep you windscreen wipers in good condition so that they will clear the water from the windscreen
- Keep your windscreen washer bottle topped up
- Take extra care on standing water as you could aquaplane
- Turn on your lights so that you can see where you are going and just as importantly so that people can see you coming
- Check your brakes after travelling through deep water – they might not be working
Car accidents compensation claims – making a claim
These are the essential aspects of making a claim:
- Contact Accident Advice Helpline on their 24/7 helpline. They are a compensation provider and can help with your claim.
- Take the unique 30 second test to see if your claim could be successful.
- Get allocated a personal injury lawyer who is an expert on car accidents compensation claims.
- Provide all the details of the accident and the injury. You have up to three years to make a claim but it is best to start while all the details are fresh in your mind.
- Attend one local medical appointment with a medical expert to get a medical assessment report prepared. Injuries from car accidents can be mild or severe. One very common injury is whiplash.
- Your case is resolved (probably over the telephone and without going to court) and you get your compensation. Some cases take longer than others to sort out.
