Unfortunately, SorryMate have seen a rise in diesel spill accident claims recently. This could have something to do with the time of the year, and we hope the number of accidents doesn’t continue to rise, but we thought we would provide you with some useful information regarding diesel spills just in case.
Firstly, never assume that you cannot claim for an accident you have that is caused by a diesel spill. A lot of people don’t think they can claim because it doesn’t immediately seem that anyone is at fault, but it’s likely someone is and we can investigate it for you.
It can be difficult to see diesel spills, especially in wet weather, and other than slowing down to ridiculous speeds, there is no way to improve the likelihood of seeing the spills. All you can do is keep your eyes on the road and stay alert and we cannot help you with this. We can, however, help you get the compensation you deserve if the evidence points to the spill being there due to the negligence of another driver (which it often is).
No matter how unlikely you think it is that someone at fault can be found, call us on 0800 6 300 301. SorryMate has years of experience dealing with these claims and we have had a huge success rate in dealing with diesel spill claims. We’re not just here to deal with collisions, so whenever and however you come off your bike, call SorryMate!
