    Victim of a fall in Hounslow

    Have you been the victim of a fall in Hounslow?

    If you drive regularly, or if you use public transport often, chances are you may have already been involved in some form of a road traffic accident or a collision. Whilst no-one intends to get hurt in a Hounslow accident, there are some things that you could do to try and prevent a Hounslow accident from occurring. Talk to us today if you’ve been hurt on the road or have been the victim of a fall in Hounslow.

    Drive a safe distance from other vehicles

    Although learner drivers are generally taught to leave a safe distance between their vehicle and the vehicle in front, this isn’t something that is often practised on the roads. Even at high speeds, some drivers tend to drive far too close to the vehicle in front of them which could cause an accident if they are unable to perform an emergency stop without hitting the vehicle in front.

     Limit the number of distractions

    Although everyone knows it’s illegal to use a mobile phone whilst driving, there are other distractions which could cause a Hounslow accident that are still legal. For example, you may want to turn your radio to a low volume, or turn it off altogether, to ensure that you can hear emergency vehicles. Similarly, you may not want to hang air fresheners or other novelty items from your rear view mirror to ensure that you have a clear view of the roads at all times.

    Don’t drive with a passenger

    If you’re a newer driver, you may feel nervous when you get behind the wheel after passing your test. If you feel that passengers may distract you from the road and you would be more likely to cause an accident, you may wish to drive alone at first until you increase your confidence on the roads.

    Taking precautions, such as those listed above, can help you to keep focused on the roads and can help prevent an accident from occurring. However, whilst you may be able to take responsibility for your own actions on the road, you may be unable to prevent another driver from causing an accident.

    If another driver hits your vehicle or causes an accident and you suffer injuries, it’s important to obtain medical help straightaway. Once your injuries have been established and treated, you may begin to wonder whether or not you will be able to obtain compensation.

    Providing you can show that the other driver was at fault and caused the accident, it’s likely that you will be eligible to make a claim and you could even successfully obtain a substantial amount of compensation.
