Understanding The Hidden Dangers Of Commuting To Work


Commuting to work can be more dangerous than you might think. A lot of people commute to and from work on a daily basis. If you're driving or carpooling there are a few things you'll want to be aware of.

In this article we're going to cover the main things you need to watch out for when you're commuting to and from work, as well as the steps you should take if you happen to get in an accident during your commute.

What are the main risks I need to watch out for?

The types of risks you'll have to keep an eye out for depend upon the mode of transportation you're taking to work. Below we'll focus on the three main types as well as the risks associated with each.

Driving


The biggest cause of driving related accidents are the varying distractions that are present on the roadways. When you're driving you're vulnerable to all sorts of different distractions, most of which come from within your car. For instance, the radio can be a big distraction and cause you not to hear noises that are coming from outside your vehicle, such as, sirens and other car horns.
Another big distraction is cell phone use while driving. Even the occasional glance at your phone will take your eyes off the road for a second. That split second can make the different between getting in an accident and making it home safe. If you are tempted easily by your phone make sure that you turn it off as soon as you get inside of your vehicle. You can always wait to text and make phone calls once you reach your destination.

Transporting other people can be a massive distraction as well. All it takes is one person in your car to raise their voice and your mind will be off the road. If you are transporting passengers make sure they're aware if they're being distracting. It's the job of everyone in the car to ensure that everybody reaches their destination in a safe manner.

Bicycling

Riding a bicycle is a continuously increasing mode of transportation to and from the office. Riding your bike can be good for your health and the environment at the same time. As pleasant as the experience might be there are a few things you'll want to watch out for. For instance, you'll need to ensure you always wear the proper protective equipment and reflective clothing if you're planning on biking at night. It's also important to follow the rules of the road, and always be aware of what other drivers are doing.

What should I be doing if I just got in an accident?

If you are involved in an accident when you're commuting to or from work then first thing you need to do is make sure that everyone involved is safe. Once everyone is safe, make sure that you get the necessary medical attention. When getting medical attention it can be helpful to safe and receipts for medical bills you may have to pay.

If you want to file a personal injury claim there's a good chance you'll need to provide proof of any injuries that were a result of the crash. Even if you don't feel the need to go to the hospital immediately following your accident, you may have injuries that will show up much later, such as, whiplash.

I hope this article has been valuable and you have a better understanding of how you can protect yourself when you're going to and from work.
