About Motorway Accident

Motorway accidents are not as frequent as usual road traffic accidents, however, when they do occur, people are more likely to face a lot of more severe damages to their physical health. Therefore, if you have experienced a motorway accident, we highly advise that you contact one of our solicitors at Solicitors On Your Side Scotland.

Common Causes of Motorway Accidents

There is a range of things that can cause motorway accidents; however, the most common ones include:

  • Negligent driving on the motorway.
  • Poor maintained vehicle
  • Changing lane without care and indication
  • Using a mobile phone whilst driving
  • Weather conditions causing accidents
  • Roads conditions causing accidents
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Driving above the speed limit

If you have been involved in a motorway accident, we highly advise that you contact one of our experienced solicitors at Solicitors On Your Side Scotland.

Highway code rules

There is a range of highway code rules put in place to ensure the safety of all drivers when on the motorway.

Rule 259- “Give priority to traffic already on the motorway”

  • Check the Traffic already on and check the speed to fit safely into the traffic flow in the left-hand lane.
  • Do not drive onto the hard shoulder unless allowed or during an emergency.
  • Remain on the left-hand lane long enough to adjust to the speed of the traffic before considering overtaking.

Rule 260 – “Keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front to increase the gap on icy roads”

Rule 261 – “You must not exceed the speed limit of 70mph, or the maximum permitted for the vehicle”.

High-speed accidents

If a road user fails to follow these rules, the likelihood of an accident occurring is higher, if you have been involved in a road traffic accident and faced injuries, loss or damage as a consequence of it, we highly advise that you contact one of our experienced solicitors at Solicitors On Your Side Scotland. Due to the nature of motorways, and how fast vehicles usually travel on them, the impact of the crash, if it occurs, is more likely to be bigger, leading to more severe damages. Motorway accidents can even be fatal, visit our “Fatal Accidents Page” to find out more.
