Do you need to contact York accident claim solicitors after driving in bad weather?
Although winter only officially lasts for three months of each year, bad weather can continue right throughout autumn and winter as well. Unfortunately, this can be bad news for drivers as bad weather can result in an increase in road traffic accidents.
Whilst car accidents and collisions can occur in any situation, bad weather or poor visibility may mean that accidents occur more often. If, for example, it was very foggy and drivers were struggling to see, they may not realise how close they are to other vehicles and this could result in a collision occurring. Similarly, if it has been raining very heavily, the road surface will be wet for quite some time. If a driver tries to brake suddenly, the vehicle could skid into oncoming traffic and an accident could occur.
Although people may want to refrain from driving in bad weather, this isn’t always possible. If people need to get to work or undertake urgent journeys, they may feel forced to drive in conditions they aren’t really comfortable with. However, rather than driving into a potentially unsafe situation, you may want to take public transport until the weather improves.
If you are involved in a road traffic accident due to the bad weather, it may still be possible for you to make a compensation claim with York accident claim solicitors, providing you didn’t cause the incident. If, for example, another driver accidentally hit your vehicle because of poor visibility, you may be able to obtain compensation from them, with help from York accident claim solicitors.
Furthermore, if additional passengers were in your vehicle at the time of the incident and they also suffered injuries, they may be able to make compensation claims with York accident claim solicitors as well.
