Making a Claim following a Motorway Accident
Despite the fact that motorways are amongst the UK's safest roads, accidents do happen, and when they do they can be extremely serious. Motorway accidents are often caused by the unsafe driving of one individual, yet typically involve multiple cars, drivers and passengers.
If you have suffered an injury or damage to your vehicle, or you have been forced to take time off work following a motorway accident that was not your fault, contact the motorway accident specialists at Grieves Solicitors as soon as possible to discuss a potential claim.
Common Causes of Motorway Accidents
UK police make a series of recommendations designed to ensure you stay safe on the motorway. If the driver responsible for your accident was not following the below advice, they may have been driving dangerously; contact a solicitor to discuss making a compensation claim.
Common causes of motorway accidents include:
- Driving too close to the car in front: drivers must leave a larger gap than normal between their car and the car in front, to account for the increased stopping distance.
- Speeding: it may sound obvious but speeding is a major cause of motorway accidents, and can also lead to much more serious injuries for drivers and passengers involved.
- Hogging the middle lane: remember to stay in the left hand lane at all times, except when overtaking. Drivers who hog the middle lane can cause other drivers to become frustrated, making an accident far more likely.
- Getting stuck behind a large vehicle: large vehicles make it difficult to see the road ahead; if you get stuck behind a large vehicle make sure you drop back to increase visibility and overtake as soon as possible.
- Wet road surface: pay attention to the road surface; if it is wet, remember to adjust your speed accordingly to allow for greater stopping distances.
Motorway accidents can happen for a huge variety of reasons; the important thing to remember is, if you were not responsible for the accident yet have sustained an injury or damage to your vehicle, you may be able to claim financial compensation.
