Claims for a road accident which occurs in icy conditions

During winter the weather can play a major role in your chances of receiving an injury, as the colder climate could create icy conditions which make it difficult to travel in. Whether you’re driving to work or visiting family it is important that you take precaution when the conditions take a turn for the worse, but sometime all the preparation can be in vain as the unpredictability of icy surfaces could result in you having a road accident. This is a very serious situation and you could end up requiring hospital treatment as a result, but if you believe this was a result of negligence then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

In what instances may I look to claim?

There are a number of instances where a claim could be made as the result of a road accident during icy conditions, with some common examples including:

·         Claims against a negligent road authority agency

·         Claims against another motorist

·         Claims against a lack of warnings or road signage

·         Claims if the road hasn’t been gritted

·         Claims if your vehicle has been damaged.

Who could I look to claim against in this situation?

Icy conditions can wreak havoc on motorists during the winter and this can often result in numerous collisions and injuries, but if you have been unfortunate enough to be involved in this situation then you may be able to claim for compensation. When it comes to claiming compensation for an incident such as this then there are a number of people you could claim against, whether it’s another driver or a road authority agency whose negligence has resulted in your injuries. If you believe that you have suffered as a result of this but you are unsure what to do, then you may be in fact entitled to make a claim for compensation. A successful claim could help you to recoup any losses that you have incurred and could help you find a way to get you back on your feet.
