Winter road accident claims

When winter arrives it can wreak havoc on the roads here in the UK and although there are measures in place to prevent any accidents from occurring, you could still end up having the misfortune of suffering an injury. Roads in winter can become very unpredictable, with black ice and snow affecting how your vehicle handles, meaning that the chances of an accident occurring are increased even greater. It is the responsibility of the council or a local road authority agency to ensure that the roads are safe, but if you feel negligence has played a role in your injury you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

What instances could I look to claim?

If you have been injured while on the roads this winter and it was through no fault of your own, then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation. Some examples of where this could occur include:

·         Accidents involving lack of road visibility

·         Accidents which occur as a result of a lack gritting

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

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

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

Who may be at fault in this situation?

In general, when it comes to the welfare and maintenance of the roads and its users here in the UK it is the responsibility of either the council or a local road authority agency. 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. Making a claim can be a difficult process and you must be able to prove that negligence has occurred, so it is important to take down as many details as possible.
