Hurt in a collision near Kilwinning
Although we all know that skilled workmen and women are used to build new motorways and roads, not much thought is given to the maintenance of these roads. Whilst they are sometimes closed so that repairs can be carried out, much of the maintenance work actually takes place whilst the road is still open.
For example, you may travel by motorway and notice that one or two lanes of the road have been cordoned off so that roadworks or maintenance works can be carried out. Although cars and vehicles are speeding past, workmen and women continue to carry out the essential works.
Due to this, they can be at an increased risk of danger. If a car were to swerve or hit them, it’s likely that they would be killed or suffer very serious injuries. Although driving on the motorway can be tiring, it’s essential that you remain aware of your surroundings, particularly if people are working on the carriageway.
Although people working on the carriageway may be at an increasing risk of an accident, it’s possible that they could inadvertently cause an accident also. If, for example, they were moving a works vehicle from one part of the road to another and they were to spill something or something was to fall off the back of the vehicle, it could easily cause an accident. If, for example, hot tarmac was spilled across the carriageway, vehicles could easily skid or begin to sink and be unable to continue which could cause other vehicles to hit them.
Not your fault
Similarly, if a works vehicles pulls out unexpectedly or straddles two lanes, it could cause complications for other vehicles and an accident could occur as a result. If you’ve been hurt in this type of accident and you think a workman or woman is to blame, you may find that you’re able to make a claim for Kilwinning compensation. As long as you can show that you weren’t at fault and that you weren’t responsible for the incident, it’s possible that you could obtain compensation for your injuries.
