Cycle Accident Representation: Putting Cyclists' Rights First

At Cycle Law Scotland, we’re committed to doing everything we can to reduce the number of cycling accidents on our roads. However, no matter how many cycling road safety initiatives we support, cycling collisions with motor vehicles will still take place.

As keen cyclists, the team at Cycle Law Scotland know first-hand the potential risks involved when riding a bicycle especially in urban areas. Having represented many injured cyclists in accident compensation claims, we are aware that cyclists are often more vulnerable to serious injury than other road users. If you or a loved one has been injured in a cycling incident, it’s vital to seek expert legal advice, preferably from a lawyer with a specialist knowledge of cycling accident law.

Changing Solicitors

At Cycle Law Scotland, we have a "no win no fee" policy and will begin by arranging a no obligation initial meeting for you with one of our highly-regarded cycle accident lawyers. At this meeting in our offices (or, if you are unable to travel as a result of your injuries, at your home), we will review your case and advise you on the potential value of any compensation claim for the injuries sustained.

Our experienced lawyers work closely with our clients, backed up by a team of expert witnesses, highly regarded Advocates and leading medical, surgical and rehabilitation consultants. By working together, our aim is to achieve the best possible result for you.
