The motor insurance companies and your car
There are numerous car insurance companies out there that will offer you different incentives to make them you choose them, and like with most things in life, the cheapest is not always the best. You need to consider which one provides the options you feel you want, such as a free courtesy car if you are in an accident and yours needs repair work.
You are more important than the car
However, no matter how much you love your car, it is replaceable. Your insurance, or the other party’s insurance when they are at fault, will repair it or give you the value so that you can buy another. Unfortunately, if you lose a limb in a road traffic accident, you cannot buy a new arm or leg.
If this were to happen to you, your life would be changed forever. You may not be able to carry on with the same job, you may not be able to carry out everyday tasks for yourself and your home might need adapting, perhaps with ramps for a wheelchair.
Let us hope that if you are involved in a car accident your injuries are a lot less severe than losing a limb, but even more minor injuries can cause months of pain and disability, as well as trauma and anxiety that may lead to you making a serious injury claim in Southwark.
