Slip roads are designed to make it easier for motorists to enter onto and exit from a motorway or dual carriageway – unfortunately, they’re also one of the most common spots for accidents to happen.

How does a slip road crash happen?
You might be wondering how a crash on a slip road happens – well, when you’re pulling out of a slip road onto a motorway, you need to check there’s enough space for you to pull out into oncoming traffic.
It might be that cars coming along the motorway don’t make room for you, or that they speed up, causing a collision. Another driver suddenly changing lanes as they approach the slip road could also cause an accident to happen. You could even be involved in a rear-end collision if drivers fail to slow down as you pull out.
This type of collision can also happen when using a slip road to exit the motorway or dual carriageway, as you could be hit from behind by a tailgating driver who fails to reduce their speed. However your accident happened, if somebody else is at fault, you could make a claim for personal injury compensation.
Accident Advice Helpline’s team of expert personal injury advisers are here to make sure you get the confidential advice you need, and there’s no obligation to proceed with a claim.
How serious are your injuries?
Injuries sustained in a car crash can range from minor injuries such as cuts and bruises to more severe injuries including broken bones, facial injuries, crush injuries (for example, if you are trapped in your vehicle), burns (if your vehicle catches on fire after the collision), spinal and back injuries and head injuries.
Even whiplash can be considered a serious injury if your muscles don’t heal properly and you are left suffering from pain which affects your day-to-day life.
