Road accidents can happen for a number of reasons, and if you were not at fault for your road accident then you may be able to make road accident claims in Spelthorne against the person who was.
One of the major causes of road accidents, which drivers may not even be aware is such a serious problem, is being distracted behind the wheel. Even the most minor distraction can cause you to make a mistake or miss something which could then lead to a serious road accident. Here are some of the most common distractions, and how you can claim compensation against a distracted driver.
Talking on the phone
There is a reason that this is illegal in many countries all over the world now, and this is because chatting on the phone whilst you are driving is a major cause of road accidents, and near accidents. When you are talking on the phone your brain is forced to focus on several different things at once, meaning that you are not giving your full focus to the road.
Dealing with children
If you have children in the car that are causing problems for you, the best thing for you to do is to pull over to deal with them, rather than turning around and trying to discipline them whilst the car is still in motion. If your children are causing problems, it is better to stop the car and lose time than keep driving and have an accident.
Eating, drinking or smoking
Another common cause of accidents is eating, drinking or smoking whilst you are behind the wheel. If you are desperate for something to eat or drink, pull over and take a real break from driving, rather than trying to do both at the same time.
