Avoid winter accidents
A leading personal injury lawyer has given words of guidance for motorists over the winter periods, which have recently seen severe snowy spells raging across the country.
These conditions can cause car accidents as the roads are covered with snow and ice, leading to personal injuries including whiplash injuries.
Incidents like these could see the injured party receiving thousands of tens of thousands of pounds in a compensation claim.
The personal injury lawyer warned that motorists would be held responsible for causing an injury to someone inside the vehicle, in another motor or if it is a passer-by. He also mentioned a number of scenarios in which drivers can find themselves in and encouraged them to implement safe driving conditions.
In addition employers were also mentioned and told of their responsibility in minimizing accidents such as keeping their property clear of ice where drivers can use such as car parks.
