Breaking your Claim Down
The majority of any compensation awarded as a result of your cycling accident claim is likely to be accounted for by General Damages and Special Damages. General Damages are awarded for the physical and psychological pain caused by your injury, as well as for any restrictions or limitations the injury has placed on you to carry out your normal life, including in your domestic and leisure life.
Special Damages are your financial losses. These may include such things as the cost of medical treatment and care, damage to your bicycle, lost earnings and any particular adaptations you have had to make because of your injuries.
Supporting Your Claim
There are many documents and witness statements you will need in order to fully support your claim. Thompsons accident lawyers in Scotland can help you ensure your claim is supported with receipts, photographs, estimates, along with accurate and persuasive lost earnings calculations.
We can also help you ensure your claim is based on all available witness statements as well as the best possible accident reconstruction techniques.
Where liability is admitted at an early stage, proceeding with the claim should be relatively straightforward. However, where liability is contested it is essential to obtain police reports, to contact all possible witnesses for statements, and to carefully consider all other evidence, including vehicle damage documents.
