At Cycle Law Scotland, we will deal with your claim efficiently, effectively and in the shortest possible time without risking the success of your case or the value of your claim.

We will provide you with realistic timescales at the outset. Once you have given us the go-ahead, we will set to work immediately, gathering all the evidence we need to establish the extent of any claim for compensation.

Once the claim has been submitted to your opponent’s insurance company and they ‘note interest’, they have 12 weeks in which to admit or deny liability. Often, this period is shorter, although, in some cases, a third-party insurer will not respond in time and if that situation arises, we would take a very proactive approach and prepare your case for Court.

If you have made a full recovery from your injuries, you can expect to have your case dealt with within six months. If you have not made a full recovery, we will assess the value of your claim when we know the full extent of your injuries and any long-term consequences. In serious injury cases it can take some time before a full assessment can be made of the extent of a claim, but we would ask for interim payments and funding along the way.

If the case has to be raised in court, we will provide you with a realistic timescale regarding how long it will take for your case to be settled. We will keep you updated on the progress of your claim every step of the way.
