From the Roadside to Courtroom – are you protected?
Would you know what to do if you receive that phone call from one of your drivers saying they’ve had a serious or fatal collision? Do you have access to a specialist road traffic Lawyer 24/7 to advise you and your drivers? Are you aware that any action taken from the moment a collision occurs can have irreparable consequences for the driver, the company and for any claim which may follow? If the answer to these questions is no, then it leaves drivers in a very vulnerable position at the roadside. As a result, drivers are incriminating themselves at the roadside meaning that it is that much harder to defend them later down the line if or when they are charged with an offence.
