    M40 Accident


    The M40 motorway runs between London and Birmingham and provides one of the quickest routes to the West Midlands and the M1. Several horrific accidents have occurred on this motorway in the past, the most recent M40 accident resulting in serious injuries for a driver. Driving on any motorway requires extra vigilance and concentration, as many accidents are caused by excess speed and failure to read the road ahead.

    An M40 accident, or any other motorway collision, can cause serious injury to people simply travelling home or on a day out. Weather conditions, particularly in the winter, are not heeded by some drivers who continue to speed on the motorway, and drive irresponsibly in their hurry to reach their destination.

    What to do if you are involved in an M40 accident, or traffic accident on any road

    Using a camera phone to take pictures of anything that might have contributed to the accident, such as a poorly maintained road, or a spillage, will help to piece together an account of what happened. Photographing any other cars that were involved in the accident, and obtaining the details of any witnesses, will also help to identify the cause of the accident and corroborate your version of events.

    Whether you have been involved in an M40 accident or a collision on a rural road, the police and ambulance service should be called to take control of the situation. The police will need to take a statement from you at some point, but the main priority at the accident scene will be to get any people who are injured to hospital.

    If you decide to make a claim for compensation

    Deciding to make a personal injury claim is a big decision that nobody wants to make. However, if you have suffered injuries through no fault of your own, you may need to take time off work while you recover. Lost earnings, car repair costs, and the psychological trauma of the accident should be compensated. To help you decide whether you want to take action, we offer expert legal advice to all our callers.

    Open Claim Calculator

    If you do not want to speak to anyone about the accident, you can use our claims calculator which is located on every page of our website. In addition to confirming whether your claim is eligible, the results will give you a rough estimate of how much compensation you might receive if you win your case.

    Should you decide to pursue a claim with us, we will help to make the legal process less stressful by offering a recommendation for an experienced personal injury lawyer in your area, to deal with your case on a no win, no fee*’ basis.
