Snow and Ice Causes Number of Car Accident Insurance Claims to Double

GLASGOW, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Jan. 28, 2011) - The snow and ice are thought to be responsible for making the number of insurance claims increase last month by up to one hundred percent compared to a standard December.

As snow and ice have caused chaos on the roads this year, many British motorists have suffered from dangerous driving conditions and now insurance companies are seeing the effects that the weather has had on many drivers and their vehicles.

Because of the lengthy duration of the snow and ice, many people have pushed on with their daily routines through the treacherous conditions, but this not only endangers themselves but others too; particularly when people do not adjust their driving techniques and drive slower.

The good news, however, is that although there has been a drastic increase in road accidents, the number of personal injury claims has dropped by 10 percent.

A spokesperson for Scottish Compensation, who specialise in No win no fee accident claims, commented: 'The slower pace people have taken due to the conditions is thought to be responsible for the drop in personal injuries. Despite conditions being more hazardous, people have been more careful or not going out at all which is likely to explain the figures'.
