    Ice or snow road accidents


    Did you know that stopping distance when driving are 10 times longer when the roads have snow or ice on them? It’s little wonder then that ice or snow road accidents are so much more common than road accidents during the summer months. Unfortunately, no matter how safe a driver you are, you can’t predict how other road users will behave, and some drivers don’t reduce their speed on the roads just because of bad weather. If you’ve been injured and a dangerous driver is at fault, Accident Advice Helpline could help you to claim personal injury compensation.

    How do ice or snow road accidents happen?

    Ice or snow road accidents are usually a result of a vehicle’s wheels skidding on a road covered in ice and snow, and the driver losing control of their vehicle. This could cause a rear-end collision at low speeds, or a more serious collision if the driver is driving very fast. If the collision happens at high speed (for example on a motorway), the results could be serious injuries ranging from head and spinal injuries to crush injuries, broken bones and even fatalities. Even at slow speeds, injuries such as broken bones, concussion and whiplash are common, and if you have been injured due to a negligent driver, you’re entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering.

    How much compensation could you get?

    The amount of compensation you could get if you’re injured in a road traffic accident depends on a number of different things, including the severity of your injuries, how they have affected your life, and your prognosis for the future – for example, are your injuries permanent or will you recover from them? If you have suffered a life-changing injury such as a brain injury, after a road traffic accident, you could find you’re entitled to compensation which will take into account any future losses you’ll suffer, such as loss of earnings, as well as compensation for the costs of care and medical treatment in future.
