    Welshpool car crash

    How to change a wheel on your car safely to avoid a Welshpool car crash

    If you maintain the wheels on your car, you can help lower the probability of having a Welshpool car crash. The wheels on your car are just as critical as the brake and steering when it comes to keeping you safe on the road, and helping you to avoid a Welshpool car accident. If your wheels are worn down, or have a puncture, your car can easily veer off the road when you are moving at speed, causing a car accident.

    The best thing to do if you notice a problem with any wheel is to change it as soon as possible. Of course, mechanics can do this for you, but if you are already on the road and there is no chance to get a mechanic out right away, the best course of action is to change the wheel yourself. Here are some tips for doing this safely.

    • Don’t change a wheel on the motorway. If you need to change a wheel and can get off of the motorway first, then do so. If your car has stopped because the wheel has blown then you should call an expert to come and take the car. You should also try to avoid changing a wheel at the side of a busy road.
    • Only change a wheel on firm road. Trying to change a wheel on uneven or soft ground will make the car difficult to jack up and can cause you an injury.
    • Don’t get under the car. You may have seen mechanics working underneath a car before, but this does not mean that the equipment you have is safe to do that. If the car slips and falls on top of you you could be crushed.
    • Get everyone out of the car. Whether it is cold, raining or whatever, it is far too dangerous to try to change a wheel with passengers in the car, as the extra weight will work against you. It could also be dangerous for your passengers.

    How to claim compensation for a Welshpool car crash which was not your fault

    If you have a Welshpool car crash and feel that it was caused by the negligence of another driver, you may have a good chance of making a successful compensation claim for your injuries.
