    Bike accidents in Orkney

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Orkney

    Let’s hope bike accidents in Orkney wouldn’t happen too often. The Orkneys are so breathtakingly beautiful, a visitor wants to be in tip-top condition to appreciate and enjoy their time there. The Orkneys have a rich historical past, beginning in the Iron Age and lots of relics have been found. The Vikings raided regularly and the Norwegians even ruled the islands up until the 12th Century.

    Cycling round the twisty lanes with all this history in the air should be a joy, unless some crazy motorist or wild animal cuts across your path and sends you flying. Cyclists and motor cyclists are especially vulnerable because their bodies have no protection, although the helmet protects the skull to some extent.

    Claiming compensation for bike accidents in Orkney

    If you have suffered injuries because someone separated you from your bike – pedal or motor – you could be entitled to claim for compensation if your accident injuries meet three conditions:

    • Your accident was caused by another person or a third party
    • You received medical attention for your injuries
    • It happened within the last 3 years

    What does claiming compensation for bike accidents in Orkney have in common with other non-fault injury claims? Well, firstly there’s the pain and inconvenience of your injuries. You might be off work as a result, and lose income. You might have a young family and be unable to care for them. You may find in addition to NHS treatment, you need private therapies to help you recover. All these consequences cost money. What’s more, if it’s a road traffic accident, there’s the whole business with dealing with the motor insurance companies.

    What offers are made when claiming compensation for bike accidents in Orkney?

    Beware of accepting the offer that comes in soon after the accident, from the defendant’s insurers. There’s a good chance your claim is worth more than that. You need to find out the market value of your claim, and luckily there are law firms which can do it for you.
