"I highly recommend Cycle Law Scotland.
I phoned them after getting hit and injured by a private hire car while cycling in Edinburgh last year.
Roz, one of the lawyers, asked me about the crash and was able to tell me right away that they could help me as the driver had been in the wrong.
She very promptly gathered all the information, and then took care of everything: contacted the offending driver for me, as well as filing for the police report to get the driver's registration (they wouldn't give it to me), and then contacted the driver's insurance company.
CLS organised a medical examination and got the driver's insurance to reimburse me for the repairs to my bike shortly after I sent them the receipts.
Roz always kept me informed about what was going on. As the symptoms of my injury persisted, Roz kept in touch during the year to see how I was doing. She always have me up to date information to then decide how I wanted to proceed with the case.
After a year she organised another medical exam to update the insurers and was able to get a better settlement for me as the injury continues to affect me over a year after the crash.
I didn't need to pay anything along the way for their legal services, the fee is taken as a percentage only once a settlement is reached and this too was always clearly explained."
