I need an injury lawyer in Muthill because of my cycle accident

Why use an injury lawyer in Muthill?
Regardless of the severity of a cycle accident the weeks following can be a stressful and traumatic time. The poor car driver, they are so upset, too busy texting to let you know they have caused an accident. Once you have assured them that you are not too badly hurt, they calm a little and phone the police. After all, there you are lying on the floor injured. The police arrive, takes notes from you both and a picture of the pothole that caused this mess. They send you off to hospital in an ambulance to get checked out and thankfully none of your injuries are life threatening. You may need to use an injury lawyer against the other driver and thankfully they are insured and admit it was their fault.
You get checked out in A & E, spend a few hours there and then you are sent home with your arm in plaster, your shoulder bruised, whiplash and road rash on your leg. You are in a lot of pain in several parts of your body, so they give you painkillers and tell you to go home and rest, probably need 4 – 6 weeks they tell you and go back to the trauma clinic in two weeks to make sure everything is healing, as it should.
So you go home, have a cuppa and sit and watch telly or read a good book. After a few days, your leg is beginning to heal but your shoulder and neck seem to be getting worse. Typical of whiplash, often gets worse before it gets better. Your neck has gone stiff, you keep getting headaches, feeling a bit sick – all symptoms of the whiplash and it could be a lot worse.
