Types of Claim

Many of the incidents that occur as a result of winter weather cannot be avoided, but there are instances where the negligence or mistake of a third party is to blame.

We have outlined examples of these below:

  • Slips and trips – if you have fallen while out shopping a public area that should have been gritted, you could be entitled to make a claim if a member of staff or official has failed to keep this area safe for customer access
  • Workplace incidents – another common claim for compensation occurs when a person has slipped on ice while working, which could have occurred if an employer has failed to take the necessary precautions to ensure the area was gritted
  • Road traffic accidents – this type of claim happens if an area of the road was icy, but not gritted, or due to the unsafe driving of another road user at any time of day

While these are the most common types of incident, they are not the only examples of winter weather-related accidents. If your circumstances happen to be different and have not been detailed here, you can still get in touch with us to find out if we can help you.

About Personal Injury Claims


Claiming compensation does not necessarily mean you are taking money from a company’s own funds. All employers are legally required to have insurance to cover themselves in case of incidents such as these. Therefore, you have no reason to feel guilty about claiming.

Even if your employer is a close friend, there is no harm in taking a closer look at how compensation could help you, should you find yourself in this situation.

If your claim is successful

The money you are given will come from the insurance policy, not the back pocket of the individual, body or business you are claiming from. People quite often feel worried about making a claim, but this should not be the case.

Why should I claim?

Compensation is designed to help make your everyday life return to normalcy as much as possible following a stressful incident. It is there to help you.

If an injury has left you unable to work, and you have no other source of income, claiming for compensation can help you pay bills and lead a normal life until you get back on your feet.

Act quickly

Any compensation claim for personal injury must be started within three years of the incident, or three years from the date you realised the incident was the cause of your injury. This limit is called a ‘statute of limitations’, and must be adhered to.
