Type of claim

High-speed accidents are incredibly common. They most usually occur on fast travelling roads like motorways and roads, with the national speed limit. Because of how high the speed of the car is, the impact is more likely to be greater, resulting in more severe damages and more serious injuries. However, every case is different, and you can suffer from more and less severe damages after your accident. If you have faced damages after a high-speed accident, we highly advise that you contact one of our experienced solicitors at Solicitors On Your Side Scotland.

Causes of High-Speed Accidents 

There can be a range of causes of high-speed accidents; losing control of a car when travelling at high speed is a lot more dangerous than losing control of a car when travelling at lower speeds, this is because the reaction time during a high-speed accident needs to be a lot faster. The most common causes of high-speed accidents in Scotland are:

  • Dangerous or Careless driving, either on a normal road or a motorway.
  • Driving over the speed limit. The speed limit on a motorway is 70 mph but can be lower depending on your vehicle. Travelling over the speed limit makes you more likely to be involved in a high-speed road accident.
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. This can be a serious cause of high-speed accidents, alcohol and drugs are more likely to slow down the driver’s reaction time.
  • Driving on the motorway incorrectly, not following the highway code rules, dangerous overtaking and cutting in front of other drivers.

These are just the most common causes of high-speed accidents. If you have been involved in any motoring accident, we highly advise that you contact one of our experienced solicitors at Solicitors On Your Side Scotland.

Effects of High-Speed Accidents 

Because of the speed that the vehicle is going at this type of accident, the impact is a lot more likely to be greater and cause more damage. The higher the speed of the vehicle is, the higher the impact of the crash, leading to more serious injuries.

The effects of high-speed accidents are likely to cause detrimental damage to your vehicle, health and property. It can cause tremendous damage to your physical health, with the risk of broken limbs, head, brain and spine injuries being high. High-speed accidents can even be fatal, to find out more read our “Serious Injuries Page”.
