Preventing Road Accidents

The government's "Think!" campaign outlines a number of things you can do to prevent road accidents - simple steps such as:

  • Don't drive when you're too tired
  • Always obey speed limits
  • Adjust your driving style in bad weather
  • Always wear your seatbelt

If you're a cyclist, you can try to make yourself as visible to other road users and pedestrians as possible by fixing lights and reflective materials to your body and bicycle1.

Unfortunately not all road accidents can be prevented. If you're unlucky enough to be injured in a road accident that was caused by someone else, you may be able to make a road accident compensation claim. It doesn't matter whether you were a pedestrian, cyclist, motorcyclist or passenger at the time of the accident.

Getting started is quick, free and easy. You can start your road accident compensation claim online or call one of our friendly advisors for a chat about the circumstances of your road accident.

Our advisors will be able to tell you within minutes if we can help you make a road accident compensation claim. If so, we locate the best solicitor to handle your case. They'll explain your situation to you and help you through any paperwork that needs to be done to support your claim.

What to do after a road accident

Sometimes road accidents are unavoidable. We know the minutes immediately after a road accident are distressing, but there are several things you can do at the accident site that can support a road accident compensation claim. Of course, you shouldn't attempt to collect any of this information if you don't feel up to it - your solicitor should be able to gather the information they need from the police report.

  • Taking photographs of the accident site, including damage to vehicles and the cause of the accident
  • Swap contact and insurance details with any other motorists or people involved in your accident
  • Take the contact details of any witnesses. These could be written down or recorded on your phone
  • Write down or save the registration details of any vehicles involved to your phone

This information can help your road accident solicitor get a better understanding of what happened, and prove that you weren't at fault.

Rose Holmes, Blackpool, was awarded £4,400

We received a settlement of £4,400 which we were really happy with because we weren’t expecting that much. It helped us get a chair lift and a new chair for Neil which has been a huge help.
