What is an ice or snow road traffic accident claim? 

If you have been involved in a car accident or road traffic accident that involved snow or ice, you could be eligible to make an ice or snow road traffic accident claim. When driving in icy or snowy conditions, all drivers have a responsibility to take extra care and precaution in order to prevent accidents. Still, the responsibility is not all on the road users themselves. 
The Highways Authorities also have a duty of care to road users, and must ensure that necessary steps are taken to keep road users safe in the ice and snow- this includes keeping them safe from personal injury, and harm. If either of these things do not happen, and lead to you being injured in a road traffic accident in the ice or the snow, you could make a no win no fee road traffic accident claim with our team of friendly no win no fee personal injury solicitors.

Am I eligible to make a no win no fee ice or snow road traffic accident claim? 

The key to all road traffic accident claims, including ice or snow accident claims, is that you must be able to prove that your injuries were caused by somebody else. 
This could mean- 
Ice or snow claims for reckless driving- This is where another road user has acted recklessly or negligently in their driving in the snow or ice, which has led to the road traffic accident causing you injury. 
Snow or ice road traffic accident claims against the council- in these claims, you must prove that the road traffic accident, and subsequent injury, was caused by negligence on the part of the council. This could be for failing to properly maintain the roads in the ice or snow, potholes in the road, uneven road surfaces, faulty lighting, or a number of other factors. 
If you have been injured in a road traffic accident in the ice or snow in the last three years, and believe that the incident was the fault of another road user or local authority, you could be eligible to make a road traffic accident claim. For more information on your specific injuries and accident, contact MG Legal today to discuss your potential ice or snow road traffic accident claim with a solicitor.

What to do after an ice or snow road traffic accident: 

1. Stay at the scene safely for as long as necessary: If your vehicle has been involved in a road traffic accident in any way, regardless of whether or not your car has been hit, subject to section 170 of the 1988 Road Traffic Act, you are legally obliged to stop at the scene, and failing to stop, is classed as a serious offence. This could result in driving bans, high fines, and even court cases. 
2. Always exchange insurance details with all other parties: It is also your legal obligation as a road user of any kind to openly provide the other parties involved with, and you should request other people to provide you with: 
full name 
insurance details 
vehicle details (make and model) 
3. Never admit liability for the accident: Even if you feel that you are in the wrong, or feel that the other party is clearly in the wrong and want them to admit being at fault, these discussions are pointless. It is always best to leave these discussions up to the insurance companies, as well as your specialist road traffic accident solicitors handling your claim. 
4. Report the incident to the police where necessary: If any kind of injuries have happened as a result of the crash, no matter how minor they may seem, the police must be made aware of the accident within 24 hours (or 7 days at the most). The accident must be reported by each and every party involved. 
5. Get in touch with an expert road traffic accident solicitor: Our team specialise in handling road traffic accident claims, on a no win no fee basis. Simply get in touch with us online today, here, and a specialist no win no fee solicitor will get back to you within one working hour for a no-obligation discussion of your potential case.

Making a snow or ice road traffic accident claim against the council: 

Under the 1980 Highways Act, your local authority has a duty of care to ensure that highways are properly maintained and kept safe for road users. For motorways, this responsibility lies with the Highways Agency. 
Subject to the Highways Act, snow or ice must be kept off of the roads and motorways. This is largely done with the use of gritting vehicles and the spreading of salt on the roads in preparation of icy weather to prevent the ice from settling. There are obviously a lot of roads across one local area, and the local authority cannot ensure that every single road is gritted in preparation for icy whether. According to the AA, usually around 40% of roads are gritted.  
It is up to each local authority to prioritise which roads are gritted, and this is decided based on which roads are used most often and by the highest volume of traffic. 
Therefore, if you have been injured due to the council, or local authority not gritting a small, minor road then the chances are that you will not be eligible to make a successful road traffic accident claim for your injuries. Well, not against the council or local authority, anyway. 
However, if you were involved in a road traffic accident involving ice or snow on a major road, main road, or motorway, and the proper steps were not taken to prepare the road for ice or snow, you could be able to claim financial compensation.  
If you have been injured in an ice or snow road traffic accident, and believe that your local council has not met their duty in keeping the roads safe, you could be eligible to make a no win no fee road traffic accident claim with our specialist road traffic accident solicitors

Will my insurance cover accidents in the snow? 

Generally speaking, your comprehensive car insurance should cover any weather conditions. This means that if you have been injured in a road traffic accident in the ice or snow, you will be able to make a no win no fee road traffic accident claim against the at fault party’s insurance, just as in a standard road traffic accident claim. 
However, if the insurance company believes that you have been negligent in any way, and put yourself or your car at risk, such as going out during a heavy amber or red weather warning, you could have contributory negligence in the accident, reducing the amount of financial compensation that you are entitled to. To learn more about contributory negligence, see this here.

Ice and snow accident statistics: 

It is no secret that the treacherous road conditions caused by the snow and ice can cause serious road traffic accidents. With most people avoiding going out on the roads and driving in the serious ice or snow, the overall number of accidents that take place are lowered, but the seriousness of accidents and rate of accidents per road users increase in the ice and snow. 
According to the Department for Transport. In 2019 there were 5,576 road traffic accidents that took place directly related to slippery roads caused by ice and snow. On top of this, there were 1,618 accidents that took place because of impaired visibility from snow and sleet.
