Motorway accidents are typically common given how busy they are, and an accident involving a lorry is also fairly common too. Unfortunately lorry accidents on motorways can be quite devastating and we are often representing victims who have been injured in these kinds of circumstances.
It’s usually quite easy to determine who is at fault in a road accident and many lorry vehicles now have CCTV footage on them which can be a great help. So we can usually investigate cases on a no win, no fee basis.
Establishing who is at fault
When it comes to motorway accidents we see the following typical scenarios:
- Rear end collisions
- Accidents involving vehicles changing lanes
- Accidents at slip road entry points
- Stray vehicles clipping others
If the other driver has either hit you in the back; changed lanes in to your lane; hit you at a slip road point; or clipped you if they have strayed, then you should be the blameless victim and you should have a valid claim for personal injury compensation. Whether you are the innocent driver hit by a lorry in the above circumstances, or if you are the non fault lorry driver, then we can help you.
Serious motorway collisions with a lorry
Because accidents involving a lorry tend to be quite serious, it is recommended that you speak to our Serious Injury Claims Team for help as soon as possible. If the claim is a serious injury claim then we can assist you with a no win, no fee claim and we can organise for specialist treatment and rehabilitation, and for a home visitation.
Accidents involving foreign lorry vehicles
Firstly, don’t panic! In most cases you can still make a claim especially where the foreign vehicle is registered from a European country. There are systems in place with government organisations to ensure that you can receive compensation through the English claims procedures so you don’t have to worry about trying to pursue a foreign insurer.
