We all remember clearly what we learned during driving training, but let’s face it, sometimes we feel like we got it all under control and we stop doing some of the things. The fact is that the traffic is more and more crowded, there are more cars on the streets each year and more new drivers that didn’t quite get the hang of it just yet. When you’re new to this activity, especially when you are young, you feel like you know it all, but boy! you still have a lot of learning to do ahead of you. For example, for sure, you don’t know what to do to avoid imminent accidents. We will give you some pointers on what you should do to keep yourself safe and to do if the accident already happened.

Tips and tricks to avoid accidents

In order to keep yourself and others safe and healthy in traffic and on the street, you should pay great attention around you and be very aware of whatever may happen. Avoiding any kind of accident is essential and you can do that if you follow some simple rules:

  1. Think ahead and scan the traffic carefully. Don’t rush into things and keep your distance from the car in front of you. Also watch out for pedestrians, especially for kids, because they tend to run and jump on the street.
  2. Have your hands on the steering wheel, or at least one. Never lose the grip, because anything could happen, so you have to be prepared to avoid any dangerous situations for you or for the others.
  3. Respect the fellow drivers, don’t cut ahead and respect the traffic signs. If you do that, you’ll do your part of the “agreement.

If something happens and you finally find yourself in the situation of a car accident, don’t hesitate to take all the measures for your and others’ safety. Also, it’s important to find the best accident lawyer, because you will need some legal advice and representation.

How can you help after an accident happened

Of course, the first thing should be taking care of your own safety and secure before anything else. If you’re in danger, you won’t be able to help. Then secure the area and check on the other person involved, see if they are injured, conscious and if they can talk. You should have a first aid kit at all times in your car, so you can use it in situations like this. If the other person is injured, comfort him/her and offer to help, give them the first aid and if necessary, make an emergency call on this matter. The operator will guide and help you through the steps in stabilising the victim until the ambulance arrives. You can also drive the victim to the hospital, if the injuries are not life threatening and if they can move themselves. Also, when accidents happen, you should call the police and let them know about it, cooperate with them, answer all their questions with honesty. There will also be the need of legal help, so make sure you get it.
