    Spotlight on: Motorway pile ups

    Motorways snakes their way across the British countryside; dismissed by many as being a tarmac blight on the green countryside and the wildlife, where as other people insist they are the back bone, the very life blood of the UK economy. Whichever way you choose to look at it, our motorways undoubtedly provide busy links for goods to be moved about the country, used daily by commuters as well as by many people to visit family and friends.

    Certain times of year are busier than others when it comes to the volume of motorway traffic; the festive period being one example. It is thought that 14 million vehicles will cram onto the motorways as part of the big Christmas getaway this year.

    As well as the queues, slowing moving traffic and weather to contend with, there is also the possibility of accidents. Bumps, prangs and serious pile up accidents are common news items in the UK or so it seems.

    Pile ups can be complex…

    Our injury solicitor in Cannock will tell you, that being involved in a motorway accident is bad news but being part of a major pile up can cause huge complexities when it comes to making a compensation claim. But, with respected law firm Accident Advice Helpline and their specialist injury solicitor in Cannock on your side, they will cut through these complexities making sure you get the financial justice you need.

    As with all compensation claims, there are three essential factors that must be met before your claim becomes a valid action:

    NOT your fault – the accident must not have been your fault, which in the case of multiple vehicle pile ups can be difficult to ascertain. However, weather can play a part as well as inadequate or non-existent signage. Your injury solicitor in Cannock can work their way through this is their expert way, making sure you do not miss out on compensation.

    Received medical treatment – clearly, multi-vehicle pile ups on a UK motorway will elicit an emergency response from the appropriate emergency services, which often includes the paramedics etc. Provided you sought some form of medical attention from your injuries – either at the time of the incident or immediately following it – then you may have a compensation claim. You may, for example, see your GP or maybe visit an Accident & Emergency department at some point.

    Within 3 years – this is important as it is not a date that can be moved! British law stipulates that for a personal injury compensation case to be brought against another party that it must be done so within 3 years of the date of the accident! Get yourself well but don’t miss this key deadline.
