    Driving in the rain – no win no fee* in Atherton

    Driving in any adverse weather conditions is more dangerous than driving in fine weather. But this does not have to mean that you put yourself at risk of accidents, or that driving in the rain needs to be any more dangerous than driving at any other time. If you put a few precautions in place then you should be just as safe driving in the rain as you would at any other time.

    Pay attention

    Keep both hands on the steering wheel and avoid putting the radio on or talking on your phone, or even chatting with passengers. It is important that you stay focused and look at the road around you so that you can identify hazards before they pose a threat to you.

    Use your headlights

    One of the main dangers when it comes to driving in the rain is the lack of visibility. It will usually be darker when it is raining, and your vision will be obscured. Headlights make it easier for you to see the road, and also make it easier for you to be seen.

    Drive slower than usual

    Although you should always try to get as close to the speed limit as possible on a fine day, it is okay to slow down a little in heavy rain. Your car may be a little slower to react when it is on a slippery surface, and slowing down will keep your tyres firm against the road so you can react as you need to.

    When to file a no win no fee* in Atherton claim

    If you do have an accident in bad weather, but it is caused by the negligence of another driver rather than the weather itself, then you may have a good case to make a no win no fee* in Atherton claim for compensation. Making a claim for compensation can help you to deal with the situation both financially and emotionally. Compensation helps to pay for medical bills and missed wages due to not being able to work during your recovery. But it also helps to draw a line under the incident in your mind, and start to move on from what has happened.
