Winter Weather Accident Claims
If you have been involved in an accident including snowy and/or icy conditions, and your accident can be traced to somebody else’s negligence, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation. At JMW, our specialist solicitors are here to help you recover the compensation you deserve if you have suffered an injury that could have been avoided.
How JMW Can Help
We understand just how frustrating suffering an injury can be, especially if you are having to take time off work to recover and attend medical appointments, as it means you may have been left out of pocket. Our aim is to ensure the impact of your injury on your day-to-day life is reduced as much as possible, and we can secure you compensation that, financially, puts you back in the position you were in, prior to the accident.
Our team will ensure your compensation award covers the cost of any lost wages, medical bills, transport expenses and anything else needed to aid your recovery. Our solicitors will do all of the hard work so you can focus on getting better. But don’t worry, we will still provide regular, easy-to-understand updates on the progress of your case.
Who is Responsible For Accidents Caused by Winter Weather?
Determining responsibility for your accident depends on where it occurred. For accidents that take place in work, your employer can be held accountable for not taking appropriate measures to ensure your safety. If you have been injured in a shop, restaurant or another public place, then the owner of the establishment will be liable for your injuries.
Local councils are responsible for maintaining the roads and pavements in their authority, and may be held liable if it is proven that they failed to take the appropriate measures to prevent an accident from happening on their highways.
Our solicitors have years of experience handling winter weather accident claims and will be able to determine the party responsible for your injuries to pursue for compensation on your behalf.
