Motorway Accident Statistics
Surveys of Britain's motorways indicate that over 3,000 serious collisions occur every year however The Department of Transport statistics reveal that motorways are our safest roads in terms of injury per mile travelled. More accidents happen on urban roads however a crash on an urban road is generally less serious and involves one or two vehicles, with damage to the vehicles and possibly some personal injury. Britain's worst crash on record happened in 1985, on the M6 near to Forton Services, when 13 people were killed and many others injured after a coach and ten other vehicles collided, bursting into flames. On March 10th 1997, in six separate incidents involving 160 vehicles on the M42, 3 people died and 21 people were seriously injured and a further 83 were hurt. There was extremely dense fog and many drivers were travelling far too fast for the conditions. A second accident occurred on the other side of the road when "rubber-necking" drivers slowed to gaze at the incident. This time over 30 vehicles where involved in what has been described as "twenty minutes of terror".
Motorway accident compensation claims can be particularly difficult so far as evidence is concerned especially if there are no independent witnesses. Our motorway accident solicitors regularly call upon the services of specialist forensic accident reconstruction experts who will present scientific evidence following detailed circumstantial analysis. Recent advances in computer technology have made it possible to recreate these incidents using the latest virtual reality programs which take into account physical evidence, road geometry, weather conditions, injury mechanism, ergonomics, technical data, tyre marks, reaction times, coefficient of friction values, vehicle mass, angles at impact and visibility which can be mathematically modelled to ascertain the possible sequence of events.
