Lawyer in Ripon


In a society where many people seem to always be in a hurry, the roads are fraught with dangers. Aggressive driving, speeding, tailgating and dangerous overtaking are all too common, and if you find yourself in a situation where someone is driving dangerously, the actions you take could make all the difference to your personal safety.

Tips for dealing with aggressive drivers

If you notice another motorist driving irrationally or aggressively, you should try to stay away from the situation. If the motorist is behind you, simply slow down and grant him or her the chance to overtake your vehicle. If need be, find a safe place to pull over and let this happen.

If you are concerned that a motorist is acting aggressively towards you in particular, you should make your way to the nearest police station – if the motorist realises that you are doing this, he or she may drive away.

Essential road traffic accident advice

If you find yourself in a situation where you are involved in an accident with an aggressive driver and you suspect you may have sustained an injury, you should call the emergency services and remain in your car until the police arrive. The police will then assist you in collecting details from the negligent driver.

Once you have returned home, you should report your accident to your insurance company and contact an accident lawyer in Ripon to receive advice on your legal rights. If you are worried about paying for your medical treatment, you should strongly consider making a compensation claim against the negligent driver. Although compensation will not heal your physical and psychological injuries, it will help you if you are struggling financially.
