Commonly asked questions about cycling accident claims:

All kinds of bicycle accidents may be covered, including accidents in which:

  • Two or more bikes have collided with each other
  • A car or other vehicle has run into your bike
  • You run over a pothole or other patch of damaged road on your bike, which causes you to fall
  • You have had to make a sudden action to avoid the negligent driving of another vehicle, causing you to fall
  1. The first thing to do after being injured is to seek medical treatment for your injuries – this includes calling an ambulance if your injuries are serious, or asking someone else to do so
  2. If possible, take a photograph of the place where the injury occurred, and photos of your injuries and damage to your bicycle
  3. If the crash involved another cyclist or the driver of another vehicle, get their contact details, including their license and registration number
  4. If there are witnesses nearby, try and get their contact details as well

We understand that these days, many bicycles are extremely expensive, and can cost almost as much as a car. If your bike has been seriously damaged in the accident, or if you had valuables on you at the time of the accident that were also damaged, then in some cases you may be able to claim compensation for these as well. You will need to know the exact value of the items that were damaged, or if not, the approximate cost of replacing them.
