Motorway Accident Claims

Road Traffic Accident
Motorways are considered the safest roads to travel upon in terms of the percentage of accidents per mile travelled, however, when accidents do occur they can be serious due to the speed with which the traffic is travelling.

If you or someone you know has been injured as a consequence of a motorway accident you may be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation provided that negligence can be proved against the other party involved in the accident.

Accidents on the motorway can often occur as part of multiple car pile up so a range of serious injuries and even fatalities can unfortunately happen. Fairly common injuries such as whiplash can happen if cars are driving to closely to one another and the car in front has to brake causing the car behind to hit the car in front. This can cause a domino effect with a long line of cars not having sufficient time to stop and careering into the car in front. More serious injuries such as fractures, lacerations and head injuries are more common in actual collisions.

Provided that you follow the highway code and general common sense driving principles, statistically it is unlikely that you will be involved in a motorway accident, but if you are and the fault does not lie with yourself, it is likely that you will have a case to make a claim for compensation.
