    Personal Injury Solicitors in Fort William

    If you need specialist personal injury solicitors in Fort William and are searching the Internet, you will come across the site of Accident Advice Helpline, one of the largest personal injury specialist law firms in the UK.

    Great hill-walking country

    Fort William is the largest town in the Highlands of Scotland, with about 9,000 residents. With Ben Nevis within striking distance, plus several other Munro mountains, the town’s economy is based on tourism. Visitors come here to enjoy what is some of the best hill-walking in the UK.

    A centre for mountain biking

    There’s also a large downhill mountain bike track here in Fort William, and thousands of mountain bikers come here every year, either to take part in international competitions or to mountain-bike for leisure. For the last few years the track has hosted the UCI Mountain bike World Cup, and has on occasion also hosted the UCI Mountain Bike and Trials World Championship, (known within the sport as “The Worlds”).

    Mountain-bike injury claims

    In terms of people getting injured, either in competition or trying their hand at leisure, mountain biking, they don’t really have much opportunity to make compensation claims for injuries they pick up practicing their sport.

    The fact of the matter is that with compensation claims, the blame for any accident or incident that results in injury must be attributable to a third party.

    Most of the injuries in mountain biking may be down to the bikers own fault and therefore wouldn’t be claimable either via solicitors in Fort William at Accident Advice Helpline.

    Check with the customer support team at Accident Advice Helpline

    However, if someone inadvertently left an object on the course, which resulted in a rider becoming unseated and injured; the blame in this instance would be down to someone other than the cyclist him/herself, and may therefore qualify for compensation. A brief chat with the customer service team here at Accident Advice Helpline  would quickly clarify that one way or the other.

    Gather any proof you can

    If this sort of injury has happened to you, you should gather as much evidence as possible immediately following the accident. If you’re incapacitated ask someone else to help. Taking photographs of the accident scene, including the cause of the accident is always a good idea.

    Also, talk to any witnesses and note their contact details, for contact later by your chosen injury claim solicitor.
