    On the road in winter – how to avoid accidents


    There’s no denying that more road accidents happen during the winter months than at any other time of year. Poor driving conditions, wintry weather, dark nights and a whole host of other factors mean that driving in the winter could easily lead to an accident. But there are steps you can take to avoid accidents, whether you’re a driver, cyclist, motorcyclist or pedestrian.

    Driving safely in winter

    It’s important to keep one eye on the weather in the winter months, as hazardous conditions will be reported there first. Warnings will often be issued if the Met Office feels it is unsafe to travel, so if it’s snowy or icy outside and your journey isn’t essential, it’s often best to postpone it until conditions improve, if you can. If you really do need to drive when it’s snowy or icy, make sure you drive extremely cautiously – keep your vehicle in a low gear, accelerate and break gently to avoid skidding, avoid steep hills or inclines wherever possible and try to leave extra space between your vehicle and the one in front. Major motorways and main roads are usually cleared in all but the most extreme conditions, but you are more likely to have an accident on smaller roads which could still be covered in snow or ice.

    Claiming for accident compensation

    Even if you are the most cautious driver in the world, you could still be involved in an accident through no fault of your own. If someone hits your vehicle or the vehicle you are travelling in, you could be eligible to claim for compensation. If this happens, it’s important you contact a specialist personal injury compensation lawyer with experience dealing with this type of claim.
