Winter car accident claims

When the weather begins to deteriorate during the winter months it can be very easy to become involved in car accident, as even the most experienced of drivers will find it difficult to navigate the conditions. If you have been involved in an incident as the result of poor conditions and you believe this was no fault of your own, then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Whether it’s the result of another driver or the lack of safety measures in place, you could make a claim against a number of people if they have placed your health in danger through negligence.  

Where can a claim be made?

A claim for compensation could be made if you have been injured as a result of negligence, with some common examples including:

·         Accidents which occur as a result of a lack gritting

·         Accidents involving lack of road visibility

·         Accidents caused by a failure to adequately clear a road surface

·         Accidents caused by a failure to adequately sign a potentially dangerous road surface

·         Accidents which occur as a result of no warnings and/or poor road signage.

Who may be at fault in this situation?

In general, if you have suffered an accident while driving your car on the roads during winter that was no fault of your own, then you could look to make a claim against either another road user or the local road authority agency whose job it is to ensure they are maintained. The roads can become a very dangerous place during winter so it is important that the necessary precautions are in place to prevent accident occurring, so if you are unfortunate enough to have this occur to you then you could look to claim for negligence.
