    Injured in a car accident in Monmouthshire

    Although Monmouthshire is more rural than many of the counties that make up Wales and the rest of the United Kingdom, there are still a great many car and road accidents that take place on the roads and streets of the county, including ones that end with injuries, or even fatalities.

    One reason why Monmouthshire and similar rural counties have so many accidents on their roads is the fact that many people underestimate how dangerous it can be when driving on country roads. It may be surprising to hear that as many as 60% of fatalities on the road happen on country roads in the United Kingdom, so it makes sense that many people every year seek compensation from car accident claims in Monmouthshire.

    It’s often said that prevention is better than cure, and one of the ways in which we can help deal with the dangers of driving on country roads is to ensure that accidents don’t occur in the first place. As such, here are some tips to help you avoid being injured in a car accident in Monmouthshire.

    Driving safely in the roads of Monmouthshire

    • Make sure you’re driving at a speed you are comfortable with. Adjust your driving speed depending on the weather and light conditions so that you are able to stop in the distance you can see to be clear ahead of you.
    • Be aware that there may be animals and wildlife nearby. Animals that emerge onto the road can be startling and cause you to swerve or veer off the road, even if they’re smaller animals. Keep an eye out for signs warning that animals may be herded on the road nearby.
    • Give other road users, such as cyclists, plenty of space when overtaking. Overtaking on narrow country roads can be very dangerous.
    • Don’t get complacent on roads that you know well. Even if you’ve taken the same road every day for years, there’s always a chance that you may let your attention slip and cause an accident on the road.
