If you suffered an injury whilst cycling on a Scottish road, make a claim for compensation with us. Cyclists are some of the most vulnerable road users and statistics show that accidents involving cyclists are increasing.
How to claim for a Cycling Accident?
Our specialist cycling personal injury lawyers will intimate the details of your cycling accident claim as quickly as possible after the accident. The details of the accident and injury will be sent to the insurance company who represents the person at fault.
Some motor insurers will often to try settle your injury claim directly with you and this can mean that you can receive less compensation than you should. If we represent you we will advise you appropriately should this happen.
We will ingather details of your losses, any documents that we need to prove your case and will contact witnesses as soon as possible.
How long do I have to claim after a Cycling Accident?
The time limit for settling a case is usually three years after the accident. However, in terms of the compulsory Scottish pre-action protocol your claim should be intimated as soon as possible.
If a child is involved in a cycling accident the timescale will be three years following their 16th birthday.
