    What are the five most common claims during winter?


    The winter months can often be some of the dangerous times for accidents especially in the icy and snowy times. Here are five of the most common claims during winter.

    1. Slips, trip and falls in the ice
      This is a very common accident. The times when a simple slip, trip or fall injury becomes a serious accident claim is when the slip, trip or fall occurs on private land or areas such as a railway platform where the company or owner has a responsibility to keep the floor clear and safe from any slip, trip or fall hazards.
    2. Road traffic accidents in the snow – more serious than a simple slip, trip or fall
      In snow and ice road traffic accidents like slip, trip and fall injuries are very common especially when black ice is involved.
    3. Slips on melting ice
      This is similar to slip, trip or fall claims in the snow and ice but occurs when the weather becomes less cold. Just like when it is icy, water especially when in large quantities can cause just as painful slip injuries.
    4. Property damage
      This may not be an injury such as a slip, trip or fall claim but this type of claim is definitely one of the most common during the winter. From fallen trees to pipes splitting after being frozen this is one type of claim which is as common as a slip, trip or fall in the coldest parts of winter.
    5. Road traffic accidents due to intoxication
      The winter is not always the reason why accident claims such as slips, trips and falls increase. Winter also means Christmas in the middle and is often an excuse for people to drink a lot. This may not only cause an increase in slip, trip and fall injuries due to loss of balance and inhibitions but more dangerously it can cause road traffic accidents. Under no circumstances should you drink and drive, even at Christmas.

    If you have had a slip, trip or fall during winter or any season within the last 3 years that wasn’t your fault you may be eligible to make a claim.
