MAKING A BICYCLE ACCIDENT CLAIM

Making a bicycle accident claim will allow you to claim compensation for your cycling accident. The exact amount of compensation you will be able to claim will depend on the individual circumstances of your case, and are divided into two categories: general and special damage.

Making a claim is relatively straightforward and once the solicitor has gathered enough evidence surrounding your case, they will be able to advise you on what will be required in order to ensure you are fully compensated for your losses. In order to get a full picture of the case, you will be asked a number of questions about your case, that way you can be assisted properly in every aspect of your bicycle accident claim in Glasgow.

I was left with a broken arm after an accident at the Ice Rink. After the operation on my arm I should have been received physiotherapy within 10 days. Unfortunately this did not happen and as result I ended up with an extremely stiff shoulder. I am please to say after contacting H.D Partnership I was awarded £5650.00 for the medical negligence and I could not be more grateful. Thank you.
