Common Sense

“Was there anything you could have done to prevent the accident?” It’s one of the main questions insurance companies always ask when you file a claim. When you get to that question you want to be able to truthfully say, “There was nothing I could do”.
There are many laws to follow when you’re driving. You could follow them exactly, but that doesn’t insure you won’t get into a car accident. A driver also needs to use common sense to prevent accidents. Other people aren’t always following the laws or using good judgment. Just because they’re being careless doesn’t mean you need to be a victim of the indifference to safety. Pay attention to your surroundings. If someone is still attempting to make a left turn across your lane and you’re fast approaching the intersection, slow down because if they don’t stop you’re likely to hit them. You won’t be at fault technically but you could still be injured. Who knows how long it could take for you to get any compensation from the insurance company. A little common sense goes a long way.
But sometimes following the laws and using all the common sense in the world is still not enough. Accidents happen and they can happen to you. When that time comes, give us a call, we can help.
