Cycling accident claims

Making a cycling accident claim for compensation in Scotland

Cycling in Scotland has never been more popular. For recreation, for commuting, for sport however it is now a sad fact that cyclists are now starting to overtake motorcyclists in the number of serious accidents which happen on Scottish roads. When you take into account that helmets are not compulsory and the safety clothing used is nowhere near as robust, it is easy to see why serious injury occurs when a cyclist is hit in a road traffic accident.

Numerous situations occur where the motorist will fail to see the cyclist and if you add into the mix the potential for bad weather creating poor visibility, the state of the road network or diesel spillages it does make cycling a potentially hazardous activity.

Digby Brown has seen an expediential rise in personal injuries from those involved in bicycle accidents in our Scottish cities, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth and Dundee especially, with these claims accounting for some very serious injuries.

In addition to our existing case load Digby Brown acts for the British Cycling Federation for members in Scotland which has again seen an explosion of popularity but leading to an increase in personal injuries.

If you are involved in cycling accident what should you do? 

Unlike your fellow motorist you are unlikely to have an insurance policy and therefore do not have an organisation at your back to fight your side, if the accident circumstances are disputed.

We would suggest giving Digby Brown a call, explain what happened and we will be able to help.

We will explain the process of making claim, the process of funding the claim, on a no win no fee basis, and what you should do next.  It is likely your injuries will have caused you to take time off work, caused additional expense, in the least your bike will require repair if not replacement – these days, that can easily run in to hundreds of pounds.

We have the expertise to help, call 0333 200 5925, text help to 83310 or fill in our brief enquiry form and someone will contact you.
