Many of the lawyers who work with the compensation provider Accident Advice Helpline spend their time working on no win no fee* car accident cases. Many of the no win no fee* car accident claims arise from accidents that occurred during rainy weather. If motorists do not adjust their driving to suit adverse weather conditions, accidents are more likely to happen and no win no fee* car accident claims are more likely to be made. Some driving tips to avoid no win no fee* car accident claims are described below.
Avoiding no win no fee* car accident claims
- The most obvious and important thing is to slow down. Many car accidents are caused by people driving too fast in the rain. If you have been involved in a car accident in the rain that was not your fault you can ring Accident Advice Helpline and get some advice from the highly trained professional advisers about how to make a claim for compensation.
- The second important tip is to not drive too close to the car in front of you. If a car has driven too close to you in the rain and has hit you from behind because they were not able to stop in time you may have suffered a condition called whiplash. Accident Advice Helpline has a unique 30 second test which will tell you if your claim for compensation for whiplash is likely to be successful and estimate how much money you could get. This is only an estimate, you will not find out the actual amount until the end of the claim. You can ring Accident Advice Helpline anytime of the day and any day of the week. They are backed by Esther Rantzen (UK consumer affairs champion).
- Make sure that you can see where you are going! This sound obvious but many things can affect your visibility. A dirty windscreen for example. This can only be cleaned effectively if it is not greasy and if your windscreen wipers are in good condition. Your windscreen washer bottle must also be regularly topped up. You will be able to report all the circumstances leading up to the accident (and that includes the weather conditions) to a personal injury lawyer that is allocated to you by Accident Advice Helpline. No win no fee* car accident claims are operated under the no win no fee* scheme. This is the scheme that clients prefer because it does not require them to make a large upfront payment of legal fees.
- Take extra care when driving through standing water. You can aquaplane on standing water and loose control of the car. This can result in severe injuries both for the occupants of the car and any other vehicles that it collides with. If you have been hit by a car that was aqua planing you can claim not only for your injuries but for money that you have lost because of the injuries as well.
