Roads are statistically more dangerous at night, when visibility is poorer and cold weather conditions in the winter can often lead to black ice and slippery road surfaces. If you have been injured in a crash at night time, it’s important to establish whether the accident was actually your fault. It may be that a speeding or distracted driver has caused your accident, in which case you could find yourself eligible to claim night time crash compensation with Accident Advice Helpline, on a 100% no win, no fee* basis.
How did your crash occur?
Night time crashes could leave drivers or passengers seriously injured, even killed. If somebody else is to blame for your accident, it could be that they were speeding and failed to slow down in time, or perhaps they were distracted at the wheel by their mobile phone or the radio. Or maybe a driver fell asleep at the wheel of their car or lorry and struck your vehicle. Whatever has happened, car crashes can lead to some pretty serious injuries that could leave you eligible to claim night time crash compensation, such as:
- Head injuries including concussion and brain injury
- Crush injuries if you are trapped in your vehicle
- Cuts and bruises
- Whiplash and other neck/shoulder injuries
- Back and spinal injuries
- Facial injuries, such as a broken cheekbone or eye injuries
- Burns, if your vehicle catches on fire after the collision
If you have been struck by a lorry or truck, you could sustain life-threatening injuries, whilst if you’re travelling at speed on a motorway or dual carriageway, you are more likely to be seriously injured than on a road with a lower speed limit.
