Injury lawyers in Stevenston and making a claim

Stevenston is a town in North Ayrshire, Scotland. The Castle Hill near Hullerhirst may have once been the site of a small stone tower. Under a sand mound near Dubbs, a stone pavement, coffin, and large boulder were discovered in 1832.

If anyone cycling in Scotland, or anywhere else in the UK, is injured in an accident that was not their fault, they may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim, for which they may want to use the services of injury lawyers in Stevenston at Accident Advice Helpline. 

The accidents that could mean you want to use injury lawyers in Stevenston

There are many ways cycling accidents could happen, just a few of them being:

  • Potholes or bad road surfaces throwing them from their cycle;
  • A defect on the cycle such as brakes;
  • A car door being opened as they pass; or
  • A collision with a motor vehicle.

Because the cyclist has so little protection, they are very vulnerable on the roads and any of these accidents could cause severe injuries, but there are some precautions they can take to try and reduce the risks, such as:

  • Wear a well fitting, good quality helmet;
  • Wear bright or high-visibility clothing;
  • Kneepads and elbow pads can help protect the joints;
  • Good sturdy footwear will protect the feet;
  • Have a good knowledge of the highway code;
  • Do not ride next to other cyclist; and
  • Do not ride to close to parked cars.

Hopefully, these precautions will help reduce the risk of an accident and the need to make a personal injury compensation claim using injury lawyers in Stevenston.

The accident scene

If you have not been taken away in an ambulance, you should make sure that you get as much evidence as you can from the accident scene. If you have a mobile phone, take photos, and get witnesses’ names and addresses if there were any. If the police are in attendance, make sure they get your version of events as well as anyone else’s — their accident report may well be used later when making the personal injury claim.

Making the claim

The compensation claims system is very complicated and time consuming. You need professional help to be certain of getting the amount of compensation you are entitled to, and to ensure as little anxiety as possible is caused through having to deal with your claim. The accident itself will have been more than traumatic enough, without you having to worry about these things as well.
