How to be Safe Around a Stalled Vehicle

How to be Safe Around a Stalled VehicleHaving your vehicle stall can be a terrifying experience; especially if it happens while you are cruising down the highway. The following are some tips to help keep yourself safe in the event that your vehicle stalls.

How to be Safe Around a Stalled Vehicle

The moment you suspect your vehicle is failing, pull over to the side of the road. Remember to signal and be courteous to other drivers. If you are unable to pull over, remain in the lane but do not get out of the vehicle. Instead, turn on your hazard lights and call the police for help.

Never try to cross a highway on foot. Instead, stay in your vehicle, turn on your hazard lights and call for help. It is also a good idea to watch for approaching traffic. If you see someone coming too close to your vehicle, honk to try to get their attention.

If you absolutely must get out of the car, do so on the side of the vehicle closest to the side of the road (usually the right side). If you must stand outside your vehicle, only stand in front of any oncoming traffic.

Even if you are mechanically inclined, never work on a vehicle in an area that is unsafe to do so. It is incredibly dangerous next to moving traffic even with emergency warning devices such as flares or safety triangles.

When Should You Contact a Car Accident Attorney?

If you've been injured in a car accident, you should call an injury attorney immediately. Many people have lost money by not contacting an attorney and failing to properly document their injuries, failing to obtain the necessary diagnostic test, speaking to the adverse insurance company and saying something detrimental to their case.
