With little protection other than a helmet, if involved in an accident on the road, cyclists are at risk of multiple injuries.
Multiple injury cases are complicated and require careful consideration by a highly-experienced lawyer who is a specialist in accident law and in representing injured cyclists with their personal injury claims.
Lawyers frequently assess damages based on previously reported cases. However, when a cyclist suffers multiple injuries, little guidance can be found using this method of assessment as, when it comes to a specific combination of injuries, no two cases are alike.
At Cycle Law Scotland, we believe it’s important to look at the whole picture and how the accident has affected the cyclist, both physically and emotionally, and their family. In compensation claims involving multiple injuries, this may entail asking a number of medical specialists from different disciplines for their expert opinion on how these injuries will impact upon the cyclist.
Early intervention rehabilitation is vital.
At Cycle Law Scotland, as well as assessing any medical or support needs you may have as a result of the accident, we will also take into account your rehabilitation needs and can even help with a planned return to work programme.
If, as a result of the accident, your mobility is restricted, we will arrange to visit you at home to discuss your case with you and your family so we can provide you with the expert legal advice, support and representation you need to obtain the best possible result from your compensation claim.
