Simple Ways To Avoid Common Car Insurance Claims

Simple Ways To Avoid Common Car Insurance Claims

Accidents happen, but sometimes they are preventable. Here are a few tips to help you stay clear of some common types of collisions. 

Rear-end collisions

1. Leave plenty of space between your vehicle and the one in front of you. This is crucial especially during wet or snowy road conditions.

2. Try not to slam on the brakes. If a driver behind you is following too closely or isn’t paying attention when you slam on your brake pedal, it can cause you to be rear ended. 

3. Don’t drive distracted. It only takes a split second for you to run into a vehicle if you’re not paying attention. 

Parked car collisions

1. Take a walk. Avoid parking in the busiest part of the lot to prevent any chances of dings and dents on your car.

2. Park inside the lines. When entering a parking spot, try to park inside the lines. Doing so will prevent your car from being hit by another driver or a swinging door. 

3. Give them room. Think about how much room another driver will need to get back into their car without banging their door into yours. 

Single-vehicle collisions

1. Drive for the weather. Always remember to drive according to the current weather conditions to ensure that you have control of your vehicle and avoid a collision. 

2. Keep your eyes on the road. An empty road is not an invitation to take a look at your text messages, or take a bite out of your burger. Like we stated earlier, it only takes a split second for a collision if you’re not paying attention.

3. Watch your speed. Speed is a main factor in many single vehicle collisions. Always keep an appropriate speed while driving.

No matter how careful you are, it is not always possible to prevent or predict a collision – which is why you have car insurance.
