    Pile Ups on the Motorways

    Our motorways snake their way through the British countryside, being the main arterial roads that transport humans as well as all manner of products and items – from fuel to food.

    But, what happens if you are involved in a motorway pile up?

    The immediate priority must be your physical well-being. If you are hurt, no matter how slight, you must seek immediate medical attention. It is true to say that the modern design of cars in the 21st Century, mean that the risk of death and serious injury is now much reduced.

    However, despite the speed restriction of 70 miles per hour on motorways, cars, vans and motorbikes still go much faster. Collisions can happen at speed, causing great damage to your vehicle – if not write it off – and to you.

    Many people think – and your injury lawyers in Wootton Bassett will tell you this – that they are not too badly injured. However once the adrenalin has subsided, it is amazing how many aches and pains start to become apparent.

    In all honesty, in our experience, when there are collisions on British motorways as a matter of course, paramedics are called to the scene as a precaution.

    Once you have recovered from the shock of having your journey interrupted by an inconvenient smash on the motorway, you may want to think about making a claim for compensation.

    To do this, you will need expert advice from Accident Advice Helpline and top quality legal representation found in the shape of injury lawyers in Wootton Bassett at Accident Advice Helpline.

    But, there is a guiding principle of which you need to be aware – the accident must not have been your fault. In cases where you were ‘rear-ended’ then who is to blame is cut and dried – anyone who hits the rear of your vehicle is automatically to blame as they were travelling too close to you.

    When you are involved in a pile up, this can be slightly more complicated but, with police involvement and investigation, once the results are available you can pass these to your chosen injury lawyers in Wootton Bassett and they will be able to advise you further.

    And finally, before you call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone, you need to know that you have three years from the date of the accident to make a claim.
