    Car crashes in Tyne and Wear

    Avoiding a car crash in Tyne and Wear

    This is actually easier than you think, unless you take into account the faults of other road users – at which point, the reason(s) for accidents are various.

    Accident Advice Helpline has over thirteen years experience, dealing with injury compensation claims, and they have teams of in-house personal injury solicitors working on conditional fee agreement  no win, no fee – to help ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

    It is always better to stay safe on the road as a car crash in Tyne and Wear is not exactly an ideal situation to be in.

    Here then are some tips for safer driving:

    • Do not drive when tired

    No matter where you are going, or how important it is that you get there – if you are tired then you should not be driving. Tired eyes are not able to focus, a tired mind cannot concentrate and if you were to fall asleep at the wheel…

    • Always wear a seat-belt

    This goes for your passengers too. Seat-belts are not optional either, it is the law. If you were involved in a car crash in Tyne and Wear, your chances of survival would be greatly increased if you had secured a seatbelt.

    • Keep your attention on the road

    Listening to music is a great relaxant, and a drive can be improved by it. But if the volume is so high that it drives you to distraction, then just turn it down and don’t take the risk

    Mobile phones, hands-free or not, should be off and away. Makeup, if worn, should have been applied before you left your house, hair should already be ‘done’ and food and drink should not be anywhere near your hands let alone your mouth.

    So many accidents these days are caused by people not giving their full attention to what they are doing, and these accidents are very easily avoided.

    • Drive sober

    This is obvious, or it should be. If it is obvious, and everybody knows how dangerous and irresponsible it is, then why do so many people do it? It is not just alcohol either, it’s drugs too…

    Anything that impairs judgement, in any way whatsoever, should be kept away from anyone planning to drive.

    If are involved in a car crash in Tyne and Wear, and it was not your fault, then you should most certainly contact Accident Advice Helpline today on: 0800 689 0500
