This summer you may be planning to set off in your car on a long trip, whether it’s to the beach, across the country on holiday or to the airport. But the hottest days of the year see a 50% increase in motor accidents, so do be careful – so says Lee Sparrow, Personal Lines Executive for H&H Insurance Brokers.
He advises further “If you are involved in an accident, it’s important to write down the details as this will help us speed up the claims process for you. Include the date, time and location of the accident, the vehicles and people involved and an account of what happened, along with eyewitness accounts and a diagram of the accident. If you have a mobile phone with you, take photos of the scene and close-ups of the damage. And never admit you were at fault. It’s up to the insurance companies to agree who caused the incident when they’re in possession of all the facts.”
Of course, we hope you’re never involved in a motor incident, but it’s always best to be prepared.
