    Vine accidents: Don’t run in the snow!


    Vine accidents: Don’t run in the snow!

    There has, and always will be, a British obsession with the snow. It seldom lasts more than a few days and, for some, can make a refreshing change from the usual dampness and barren landscape of the British winter.

    Snow: A national fascination

    It is not just the beauty of snow that makes it so fascinating. From snowmen and sledging to igloos and snow angels, there is so much to do when snow is on the ground, assuming you’re willing to brave the cold and accept the risk of slips, trips and falls. Indeed, snow can also be hazardous, whether you’re walking or driving in it.

    One of nature’s most dangerous hazards

    You should not run in the snow if you can avoid it, as you could end up tripping on hidden hazards such as exposed tree roots or black ice on a pavement. Wear appropriate shoes, wrap up warm and steer clear of any steep gradients or untreated surfaces to prevent a fall or trip.

    Don’t drive in the snow unless you absolutely have to, such as in an emergency. Otherwise, you run the risk of becoming injured in a road traffic accident and having to make a claim for road traffic accident compensation.

    How to make a claim for an accident that wasn’t your fault

    If you’ve recently been a victim of any accident that wasn’t your fault, you could contact Accident Advice Helpline and find out if you could make a claim. You may have suffered a slip or fall in a location that should have been cleared of snow, or you may need to make a car crash claim after suffering an injury in an accident caused by a negligent driver. You can claim for all kinds of injuries, such as work accidents or a repetitive strain injury claim.
