At Accident Advice Helpline, we are often asked questions that aren’t strictly related to the claims process – and we’re always happy to give people answers whenever we can!
One thing that a lot of people ask us is: “How can road traffic accidents in Bellshill be prevented?”
They can be prevented quite easily
It’s actually quite straightforward to prevent road traffic accidents in Bellshill from happening, because it takes little more than common sense – or perhaps we should say “road sense”!
The two main factors involved in road accidents are drivers and vehicles. If everything’s all right with these, the likelihood of an accident is low.
If we consider the vehicle first, it’s essential that it is in full working order. Do the lights work properly? Are the wipers working – and is there enough water in the reservoir? Are the windows all free of dirt, so you can see clearly out of them? Is the engine running well? Is there enough fuel in the tank to get you to your destination?
Then the driver: are you calm and confident about the journey you’re about to make? Are you alert, having had enough sleep? Have you had nothing alcoholic to drink recently? (Be careful about driving the morning after you’ve been drinking, too.) Are you prepared to drive according to the conditions (rain, fog, bright sunlight, etc.)?
Some drivers don’t always think about all of these things…
Of course, if you’re reading this, you might have been in an accident that was caused by another driver who did something reckless or negligent – and the result was that you were injured. This shows that not everyone is going to drive safely or consider the roadworthiness of their car!
Fortunately, you can do something about this situation: claim compensation. If you make a claim and it is successfully settled, you will be awarded a payout. This will mean that you have some money for the injury itself, but also a sum of money for any expenses that you have incurred as a result of the accident.
