    Common car accidents caused by misty patches

    Fog is one of the most dangerous conditions to drive in, but even misty patches can result in potentially serious road accidents.

    Misty patches and road traffic accidents

    The most dangerous element of misty patches is the false sense of security drivers are lured into on clear stretches of road. Believing they have ‘passed the worst’, they speed up and before they know it, they are involved in a traffic accident involving a vehicle travelling in a misty patch ahead of them.

    Car accidents and misty patches

    Mist is particularly dangerous on otherwise comparatively clear days. Because visibility is generally good, drivers fail to put on their lights when entering a misty patch. As a result, they can not be seen by other road users, and road accidents happen. If speeds are unsuitably high as well, injuries by accidents in these conditions can be serious, if not lethal.

    Injury by traffic accident

    Anyone involved in, and injured by vehicle accident, regardless of weather conditions, must ensure they exchange details (licence numbers, contact and insurance details) with all other involved parties. Medical attention for sustained injuries should be sought immediately to ensure documentation detailing the extent of the injuries, and treatments/ medication received, is available for potential driver or passenger injury compensation claims.

    When to claim for compensation

    Claims for personal injury compensation must be initiated within a period of no more than 36 months following the incident. In order for injured parties to qualify for compensation claims, the incident must have been caused through the fault of another road user.
