A car accident is a traumatic experience that can result in damage to your property, serious injuries, and even death. It makes sense, then, that you should do everything in your power to avoid a collision with another car or anything else for that matter.

Here are 4 ways to help you avoid a car accident in Houston:

  • Limit Distractions — Make a habit of ignoring your phone whenever you drive. Checking your phone, talking on it, or sending text messages endangers yourself, your passengers, and everyone else on the road. Putting on makeup or eating food are other distractions that can lead to a serious accident.
  • Regard all traffic lawsTraffic laws exist for a reason. Obeying them helps protect yourself and the people around you. Avoid speeding, yield to stop signs, use your turn signals and always keep a safe following distance.
  • Drive defensively — Unfortunately, no matter how safely you drive, there are other irresponsible drivers around you. To avoid an accident with a careless motorist, drive defensively. This means you should constantly scan your surroundings so that you are ready to respond to perilous drivers.
  • Keep up with vehicle maintenance — Your vehicle sustains a tremendous amount of wear and tear. If you fail to maintain and replace components, your car could break down and cause a serious accident. Perform bi-annual maintenance checks including oil changes, and replacing tires and brakes. and be sure to investigate any strange noises or vibrations that appear suddenly.

Sometimes, despite your best efforts to avoid a car accident, you end up in one anyway. If a reckless person is at fault for your accident, and you suffered an injury, you have the right to file a legal claim for compensation. With the right attorney by your side, you may be able to recover damages for medical expenses, lost wages, and more. You must act quickly, however, as the statute of limitations on your case may be running out.
