100’s of cyclists claiming for injuries caused by tram tracks

Posted in: Bicycle Accidents Finger Injuries Leg Injuries Public Transport Road Traffic Accidents 

Following a surge of cyclist injury cases since the opening of Edinburgh’s tramlines, lawyers have warned the city council that action must be taken to prevent a future fatality. Speculations have been made that the number of officially reported incidents on the tramlines is in fact a lot less than the reality of the problem. One legal firm told the BBC that they are currently dealing with 100 cases. It is estimated that the council could be facing a compensation bill of hundreds of thousands of pounds.

One lawyer, Patrick McGuire, said that they are dealing with all sorts of injury cases, ranging from severed fingers to broken legs. He said: “To my mind, it’s absolutely inevitable that unless something happens, we will see a death on the streets of our capital city.

Requests for a coloured pathway

Lesley Hinds, the City of Edinburgh transport convener, said that they have always encouraged cyclists to take extra care when travelling near the tramlines. She said that cyclists have been provided with detailed information on how best to cross the tracks, and signage has even been put in place to guide cyclists along the safest routes.

The council is currently facing requests to have a coloured pathway put in place that will guide cyclists through the city’s complex series of busy junctions.

Lawyers encourage all cyclists injured on the tramlines to come forward and seek compensation.
