Every Land Rover owner that takes to the roads needs to have a certain set of contacts on hand who they can reach out to in a time of need. If everything goes smoothly, this is great and you won’t have to make any calls. But if things do go wrong, you will know what steps to take next to minimise damage and further problems down the line. Here are a few to add to your contact list!

A Lawyer

No matter how careful a driver you may be, you have to be aware that every time you get behind the wheel, you could potentially experience an accident or incident that could result in bodily or psychological harm, or harm to your vehicle. Other drivers on the road may not be as vigilant as you are, you may experience a lapse of judgement, there may be unexpected adverse weather conditions, or there may be external problems on the road. If you do find yourself in a problematic situation, you will want to get in touch with a reliable lawyer specialising in this area. Why? Well, they will be able to examine the situation at hand, the effects that it has had on you as an individual, and take action where necessary. This is why you need to make sure that you have the contact details of a car accident lawyer, as this individual will be able to build a case on your behalf and claim any compensation owed.

Your Insurance Provider

As we are all well aware, every vehicle that is active on the road needs insurance. It’s required by law and something that we are reminded of on a regular basis. However, you should really make sure that you have your insurance provider’s details ready at all times. After all, what’s the point in having a policy if you don’t know who to contact or how to go about things if something does go wrong while you’re behind the wheel? If you experience an accident or disagreement on the road, the first thing that you need to do is exchange insurance policy details with the individual you have encountered. Move your vehicle (if possible) to a safe location. Once you are in a safe location and in a calm and stable state, this is when you need to get in touch with your insurance. Generally speaking, the sooner you contact them, the better, as your memory of the events will still be relatively fresh in your mind.

Breakdown Cover

You never know when your vehicle may experience functional problems and you might find yourself stranded at the side of the road. Many people will assume that if they do break down, they can call a friend to help tow them to safety, or simply find a way home and resolve the situation later. But if you find yourself in a less than desirable situation with nowhere to go and nobody to help, you’ll kick yourself for not taking out a breakdown cover policy and having your provider’s number on hand. Make sure to keep your policy details stored somewhere convenient inside your vehicle. This could be in a notebook stored in your glove compartment, side compartment, or even the storage behind your seat.

These are just a few different contacts to always have stored in your phone. Once you’re safely off the road, you can get in touch with them if needs be!
