    How to claim motorway pile-up compensation


    Have you been injured in a motorway pile-up? You might think it’s the type of accident that will never happen to you, but figures show that in 2014, the number of accidents on UK motorways rose for the first time in over a decade.

    So you could be more at risk than you realised. If you’ve been injured in an accident on a motorway in any part of the country, and you believe somebody else is to blame, why not make a claim for motorway pile-up compensation with Accident Advice Helpline?

    We’ve got plenty of industry experience – 15 years’ specialising in personal injury claims, to be exact – and we offer a 100% no win, no fee service, so anybody can afford to make a claim with us, no matter what their circumstances.

    How do motorway pile-ups happen?

    There are a number of factors which could cause a motorway pile-up – here are a few we have come across whilst handling motorway pile-up compensation claims:

    • Hazard on the road, such as logs which have fallen off a lorry, a bus tyre or a tree on the road – leading to a collision and pile-up
    • Car accident which has not been attended by emergency services
    • Spills on the road, such as oil or chemical spills
    • Overturned lorry or tanker
    • Wildlife such as cows or sheep on the motorway
    • A vehicle driving the wrong way on the motorway
    • Vehicles overtaking without checking their mirrors

    As you can see, there are a number of hazards lurking which could lead to a pile-up, and if you’re involved in a collision at high speed on the motorway, you could suffer some pretty serious injuries.

    Minor injuries

    Even minor injuries such as whiplash, cuts and bruises have the potential to disrupt your life – if you’ve injured your neck or back, you might need to take time off work, particularly if you are employed in a manual role.
