Thompsons Solicitors are set to be representing a number of cyclists who have suffered personal injury on Edinburgh's tram lines.

The Edinburgh Evening News reports that between 50–60 cyclists have been hurt as a result of slipping on the lines of one of the city's major transport systems.

Lawyers will argue that the track has been poorly designed and demonstrates negligence on the part of the local council.

In the city's West End, road markings suggest cyclists should ride between two tram lines.

One cyclist was almost crushed by a bus after the wheel of his bike became caught on the track, "I got my front wheel across the first tram track and the next thing I know, I'm lying on my back looking up at a bus which is just over the top of my head," he told the newspaper.

The council has so far rejected liability in every negligence claim which has been brought against them; however, if Thompsons Solicitors are successful, each victim involved in an accident on the tram tracks could receive up to £10,000 in compensation for their cycling injury.

Thompson's solicitor Stewart White commented on the case, "The position (of the council) has been that the tram tracks are there to be seen, and that's it. That's simply not good enough," he continued, "We're hopeful that we will get a successful judgement."
