Being so close to the M74 motorway is one of the reasons why we deal with so many car accident compensation claims in Rutherglen and the Glasgow area. It is a very busy route between the border area and Scotland’s largest city, and sees heavy traffic all year-round.
The number of heavy lorries on our motorways makes an already busy road network more congested, becoming particularly dangerous during the autumn and winter months with ice and snow on the roads.
But what causes the majority of road and motorway accidents in this area? Well, it is the same throughout the UK – speeding cars, people trying to use their mobile phone whilst driving, and as we said earlier, the prevailing weather conditions can have a significant impact.
Poor visibility and damaged road surfaces
Unfortunately, when these two factors combine, the result can be a serious accident. Whether drivers are unable to clean their windscreen effectively due to lack of screen wash or wiper blades in a bad condition, poor visibility can have devastating results.
It may simply be that fog or mist has descended quickly, and drivers have failed to slow down quickly enough, but this can lead to multiple pile-ups even on the quieter roads. We deal with many car accident compensation claims in Rutherglen and the Greater Glasgow area due to foggy conditions, and sadly the injuries can be life-changing.
