When you're heading home from work tonight among the millions of other commuters, remember that Friday is a dangerous time to be on the road. Research has shown that the most accidents occur on a Friday (17.9%).
The bulk of these accidents occur between the hours of 5pm and 6pm as people rush out of work after a long week at the office. They may not yet have adjusted to the darker roads since the clocks went back in October or may not be prepared for heavy rainfall in the wettest month of the year. November itself is the most dangerous months with 9.2% of accidents occurring, so add Friday and November together and you are left with a lot of accidents. The Accident Exchange surveyed 200,000 separate incidents to come up with the figures.
It's not just November that motorists should be wary of, but Friday's in general. While only 8.8% of accidents occur on a Sunday, Friday experiences a whopping 17.9% of all road accidents.
Motorists are being urged by police and road safety campaigners to take extra care on the roads as winter approaches. Last winter was the coldest for over 30 years and the snow and wet weather contributed to thousands of accidents. If the current weather is anything to suggest, this winter looks set to be even worse. Even the best drivers can be caught out by black ice or snow, so if you have an accident it is important to establish whether or not it was your fault.
If you have sustained a personal injury because you were involved in a non-fault car accident, you may be able to make a claim for compensation. Car accident injury claims are the major players in the personal injury litigation market as they are simple and can generate large cash rewards.
Whiplash and broken bones are the most common injuries suffered in a car accident. A compensation claim cannot make you better, however, so drive carefully tonight and make sure that you're not one of the 290,000 people who sustain injuries in a car accident every year.
