If you were not to blame, call Accident Advice Helpline as we may be able to help you claim compensation.
There are lots of ways cyclists can help themselves stay safe on the roads.
- Use cycle paths wherever possible.
- Always wear a good, well fitting cycle helmet.

Can you claim after a cycling accident in West Lothian?
To find out you must first confirm three things to our advisors.
- That someone else was at fault and caused your accident. Compensation is only paid if you were not to blame.
- That your injuries were seen and treated by a medical practitioner. This will not only make sure your injuries are recorded, but will make sure that you receive any care and treatment that you need.
- That your accident happened within the last three years. This is a deadline for a claim.
If you can answer ‘yes’ to all three questions, then call accident Advice Helpline now. You can even call us free if you use a landline, on 0800 689 0500. If you prefer to use a mobile, just call 0333 500 0993.
