Ice And Snow Accident Claims

The temperatures and weather conditions during the winter months can cause roads to be dangerous, with ice and snow contributing to the large number of road traffic accidents each year. Even the most experienced of drivers can have difficulty controlling their vehicle when ice or snow is present.

Road Traffic Accident Due To Ice Or Snow

If another driver has lost control of their vehicle due to weather conditions, consequently colliding with your vehicle causing damage and injury, you are likely to have a strong case for a claim. All drivers are required to take extra care in ice and snow being more aware of distance and hazards. If any of the following describes your situation, we would advise you get in touch with our solicitors to discuss a claim for compensation:

  • A third party collided with the rear of your vehicle.
  • A third party lost control of their vehicle causing a collision.
  • You were an innocent passenger regardless of if the driver was at fault.

No Win No Fee Compensation

If you have been involved in an accident due to weather conditions and it wasn't your fault, our solicitors will accept your claim under a no win, no fee* agreement. We have over 15 years experience dealing with these claims and a proven 98% court success rate. You can contact us today for free no obligation advice on 0161 763 8260.

Ice And Snow Road Safety

By taking the correct precautions, many accidents can be avoided when the weather conditions are dangerous. When there is ice or snow, you should prepare and adapt your driving style to the conditions of the road.

  • Ensure visibility is adequate by de-icing windows and removing any condensation.
  • Ensure there is no snow covering your mirrors or lights.
  • Stopping distance is greatly increased, so keep your distance from the vehicle in front.
  • Drive slowly in a high gear to improve traction and control of your vehicle.
  • Where possible, only break gently when the car is travelling in a linear direction.

Local Authorities Negligence

When a snow or ice risk is given out by the MET office, local authorities should normally treat the roads by gritting them, and will normally do so in order of importance. Motorways and other major routes with public transport will be prioritised over lesser roads and side streets.

Motorists should be aware that when driving in such conditions, it is inherently risky. If you were involved in a road traffic accident due to ice or snow that caused personal injury on a major road, and you are able to prove that the local authorities failed to salt the road, you may be eligible to claim compensation.
