    Road accident in Waveney


    Defensive driving

    Defensive driving does not mean driving aggressively or getting in the way of other vehicles, but simply being aware of the potential for a road accident in Waveney and doing everything you can to keep yourself in control of your vehicle and the situation. If you do get into a road accident in Waveney and you are driving well then you should not be blamed for the accident and will be able to claim on the other driver’s insurance, as well as possibly being able to make a compensation claim.

    Be focused

    Keep your hands on the wheel whenever you are driving, and avoid doing anything that might distract you whilst the car is moving. If you absolutely have to turn the radio on, eat something or make a call, wait until there is an opportune moment for you to pull over and do so when the car is not in motion.

    Be visible

    Accidents are often caused because one car cannot see another, so do everything in your power to make yourself as visible as possible, particularly at night. Make sure your headlights are on as soon as it gets dark, or if it is raining or snowing. Make sure you signal before every turn, even if there are no other cars on the road, and check that your brake lights are working before you head out.

    Learn the rules of the road

    You will never be a good driver if you do not know the basic rules of the road. Familiarise yourself with what signs and signals mean and know all of the rules for your area. If you go away to a new area then learn the rules there as well.

    Claiming compensation after a road accident in Waveney
