If you’ve suffered injury when cycling due to the fault of another road user, you may be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries, loss and/or damage. To have a personal injury claim, you (or a loved one) must have been injured due to the negligence of another.
At our first meeting with you, Cycle Law Scotland will discuss your case in detail, provide sound legal advice on your prospect of success and set out clear options on how best to recover the maximum monetary value of your claim for cycle accident compensation in the shortest possible time.
Once you've given Cycle Law Scotland the go-ahead, we will submit a claim to the party at fault or their insurance company detailing your case against them and requesting they admit liability.
We will consider all the evidence and fully investigate your case.
Photographs, eyewitness accounts and police reports will be obtained to assist in establishing liability or fault.
We will ask you to undergo a medical examination so we can determine the extent of any injuries or long term damage you may have sustained in the accident.
If liability is admitted, we will value your claim based on the injuries sustained, damage to your cycle and cycling equipment, any expenses incurred and loss of income.
We will submit our valuation of your claim to your opponent’s insurance company and invite them to make an offer based on our assessment of your claim.
When an offer is received, we will provide you with clear advice on whether to accept or reject the offer.
If we feel the offer is too low, we will recommend that you raise proceedings in court, at no cost or risk to you.
If liability is disputed and we consider you have a 50% prospect of success, we will raise proceedings in court which, thanks to our no win no fee policy and funding scheme will be undertaken at no cost or risk to you.
