You must be careful on the road at night – you might get into an accident that’s caused by another driver. If this happens, you could make a Devon motorcycle claim.
Who is eligible to make a Devon motorcycle claim?
Anyone who gets injured in an accident that has been caused by someone else could be entitled to claim compensation. That doesn’t necessarily mean that they will win their case and receive a payout, but at Accident Advice Helpline, all our solicitors work on a no win no fee* basis – so choosing our law firm gives claimants peace of mind.
How do claims begin?
At Accident Advice Helpline, we like to make things as straightforward as we can. First of all, we offer a 24/7 hotline, to make sure you can start your claim with ease. If you’re calling out of hours, just leave a message on our answering machine, and an advisor will be in touch with you.
During office hours, you should be able to speak to an advisor as soon as you call one of these numbers:
- 0800 689 0500 from a landline
- 0333 500 0993 from a mobile
Alternatively, send a text message and someone will get back to you as soon as possible. Text “claim365” to 88010.
What happens when the process is under way
When eligible claimants have had their details passed to one of the accident solicitors, their Devon motorcycle claim will be processed on their behalf by that solicitor. It’s their aim to get a payout that will reflect the pain, suffering and loss of amenity that the client has experienced. The payout, if awarded, will include an element for the reimbursement of expenses too.
How to avoid getting into a road traffic collision at night
If you need to make a road traffic accident claim, we’ll do all we can to help you – but we also want to help people to avoid getting into accidents. Here are some tips on night driving.
1) Before you think about going out at night in your car, bear in mind that you can’t see as well as you’d be able to see during the day. It’s best to avoid it at all, if possible.
2) Still thinking about driving? Fair enough. Just make sure you’re well rested before you set off. It goes without saying that you shouldn’t drive if you’ve been drinking.
3) Are you taking passengers with you? Can they drive your vehicle – i.e. are they insured, and do they have a licence? If so, let them share some of the burden.
4) Take breaks on your journey. Stop at least every two hours, have a coffee, eat a healthy snack, and stretch your legs.
5) Don’t drive when you’d usually be in bed. You will get very tired indeed, and you might fall asleep at the wheel.
