    Whiplash injury in Colonsay

    Many people are involved in dangerous driving activity every day without ever really thinking about it, or knowing that they are being dangerous. If you employ dangerous or negligent driving habits then you run the risk of being responsible for an accident. Not only could this cost you your licence, it could also cost you your life, and if you cause another driver a whiplash injury in Colonsay or other serious injury as the result of your own driving you may be liable to pay compensation to them.

    Have you suffered a whiplash injury in Colonsay?

    If you are involved in an accident which is someone else’s fault, and sustain a whiplash injury in Colonsay then you may be able to claim compensation for this accident.

    Accidents on the road

    • Drinking and driving. Everyone knows about this habit, and why it is so dangerous, but few people pay as close attention to it as they should. Be aware that even one drink can put you over the limit if you haven’t eaten enough, have a low weight or even if you just choose the wrong drink at the wrong time. The only way to be sure that you will not be to blame for an accident by drinking and driving is to never get into the car after an alcoholic drink.
    • Eating and driving. Although not nearly as dangerous as drinking and driving, if you are eating whilst you are driving then you are not paying full attention to the road. On top of this, if you spill something hot onto yourself you could panic and have an accident, and simply driving one handed is not safe.
    • Watching your children. Make sure that when you have children in the car there is someone else to watch them, or that they are calm and strapped in. If your children misbehave in the car, pull over to discipline them rather than trying to do it and drive at the same time.
    • Applying makeup. A lot of women try to apply makeup whilst they are driving to work in order to save time in the morning. Even if you plan to do this at traffic lights, you are not paying good enough attention to the road, so save it for when you reach your destination.
