Being located close to the M1 motorway, the Rushcliffe area has unfortunately witnessed many serious car accidents. But what goes wrong on the roads? Are there any defining problems – maybe seasonal – or are these accidents mainly due to driver error? Having dealt with many car accident compensation claims in Rushcliffe, we have a strong understanding of what can lead to accidents on a busy motorway and road network.
Reasons for car accident compensation claims in Rushcliffe
Driving in autumnal rain, fog and misty conditions is nobody’s idea of fun, but our busy lives sometimes lead to driving at excessive speeds on the motorways and major routes of the area. Perhaps the thought that “it will never happen to me” affects the rate of accidents on the roads, making drivers over-confident about their safety.
The winter season sees ice and snow being a problem on the roads around Rushcliffe, and although most of the major routes including the M1 take priority when being cleared, there are inevitably some instances where cars have collided due to icy and snowy road surfaces.
Driving too quickly and underestimating the distance needed to stop safely in these conditions are among the main reasons cited for making car accident compensation claims in Rushcliffe and the Nottingham area.
The spring and summer seasons, although offering much safer driving conditions, can also be hazardous, particularly if a heavy downpour of rain follows a sunny spell. The newly-wet road surface becomes very dangerous, and cars have a tendency to skid if care is not taken.
