Here at Accident Advice Helpline we are often involved with helping people to launch personal injury claims in North Lanarkshire as the result of injuries they’ve sustained in road traffic accidents that took place in snow. Scotland is of course infamous for its snow during the winter months, and it can make for some challenging driving conditions. New and inexperienced drivers are often put to the test and found to be responsible for causing accidents due to their lack of experience.
Some countries in Europe specify that snow chains or special winter tyres should be fitted during winter months to compensate for when there is ice and snow on the road. Other countries simply leave it to the experience and common sense of the driver to modify their driving accordingly. For example driving speeds need to be reduced and drivers should try and avoid heavy braking wherever possible. It’s also advisable to take corners gently.
Personal injury claims in North Lanarkshire following accidents in snowy conditions
If you are one of the injury victims who wish to launch claims in North Lanarkshire for an injury you sustained in an accident that was not your fault, you can commission the no win no fee services of us here at Accident Advice Helpline to assist you with registering your claim.
As well as establishing that the blame for the accident lies with a third party, you will also need to be able to confirm that you received medical attention for the injury you suffered, and that the incident/injury took place within the three years immediately preceding the date you register your claim.
The types of injuries sustained in accidents vary anywhere from light cases of whiplash injury, to loss of limbs and fatalities. Therefore the amount of compensation that is paid out varies enormously from case to case. If you’d like to establish the amount of compensation that your claim could win for you, you should take the 30-second test using the HOW MUCH compensation calculator that can be found here on this website. Not only will this test indicate whether you’re claim appears to be valid, but if it is, it will also give you an indication of the amount of compensation you could be awarded.
