Adverse Weather Conditions Cause Accident and Injury – Can I Make A Claim?
We all know that adverse weather conditions can have a huge effect on our daily lives, but not only this, they can also cause accidents which can lead to serious injuries. We may long to see the snow fall, but when we take a tumble on it, we are glad to see the back of it at the end of the winter season! Although there is nothing we can do about the weather, there are precautions which should be implemented in order to ensure our safety in these conditions. If these steps are not taken, we are entitled to make a compensation claim in Tadmarton.
Cause and Effect
There are many reasons why people slip on the ice and snow and become injured and usually these are avoidable. For instance, if the roads are not properly gritted in time, this can cause an accident which can result in an injury. Accidents can also be caused by drivers who are not taking due care and attention on the road, which is necessary during these adverse kinds of weather conditions.
Who is to Blame?
It won’t always be the case that someone else is to blame for your accident due to negative weather conditions, but more often than not, this does turn out to be the case. If there have been no gritters out on the place you took your tumble, it would usually be the fault of your local council. You will have a case for a compensation claim in Tadmarton if this turns out to be the reason. It is important to clarify that this is the case as false accusations could land you in lots of trouble!
