Road Traffic Accident Claims
If you have been involved in a road traffic accident, or collision, then you might be entitled to make a claim for financial compensation if the accident wasn’t your fault.
Although you do not need to seek legal advice, as you can represent yourself, it is best to instruct a fully qualified injury claim lawyer in Gullane to help you proceed with your claim. This is to ensure that you are receiving the very best in legal representation and to give your claim a good chance of being successful.

When people think of a road traffic accident they tend to automatically think of an incident involving one or more vehicles. Of course, this is not always the case and an injury lawyer Gullane will be able to help you start a compensation claim if you have been injured whilst you were a pedestrian, a passenger (rather than the driver) in a vehicle, or if you were a cyclist.
Cyclists are at great risk on our roads as they do not have the same protection as many other road users, but are subjected to the same risk of accident. Arguably, they are at greater risk of being involved in an accident because they can, at times, be harder to see.
Just because cyclists are smaller than other road users in terms of physical presence, does not mean that if they are involved in an accident they are to blame. All road users should be aware of the potential of hazards, from small children or animals running out into the road, and the potential for other road users to be slightly harder to see. This is why we are all subjected to taking a driving test – to ensure that we are capable of understanding the risks and dangers associated with using our roads, and how best to respond to and prepare for the potential dangers.
If you are a cyclist and have been involved in an accident, which you do not believe was your fault then you should speak to one of our injury claim lawyers in Gullane today. They will be able to help you gather all of the information and evidence you need to proceed with your case, and will complete all of the relevant paperwork on your behalf. There is very little you need to, and in most cases you won’t even need to attend court.
