Many accidents in winter are the result of ice on the roads, particularly when winter tyres have not been used or if a driver’s speed has not been adjusted to take into account current conditions. Pedestrians can also be injured, by slipping on icy pavement, for example.
What can be done?
- Secure the accident site
- File an accident report (including notes about the road conditions)
- Report any damage to your insurance company
- In the case of personal injury, give first aid, and call the police and ambulance
