If you have an accident as a cyclist, of course you can make accident and injury claims in Dacorum against the driver who was at fault for your accident.
Many cyclists don’t realise that they don’t have to just claim for their injuries and any psychological damage that was caused by the accident, but that they can also claim for damages as well. It is more obvious what you can claim for if you are in a car when you are involved in an accident, as you will need to pay for repairs to your car and so on, all of the things that insurance also pays for. But this is no different as a cyclist. If you are involved in an accident then here are some of the things that you can claim for.
Damage to your bike
Even though it is not a car, and you may not have insurance on your bike, if your bike is badly damaged as the result of your accident, you can still claim compensation for the damage. If your bike is damaged beyond repair, then you can even claim for the full cost of the bike so that you can buy another one.
Damage to your clothing
If you are wearing expensive clothing, have an expensive helmet and so on, you should add this to your compensation claim so that money is added on to pay for the cost of these items as well. Good quality sports wear is expensive and you should remember to add these costs to your claim.
Damage to personal possessions
Anything else which was on you at the time, perhaps a phone or mp3 player, can also be added to the cost of your claim if they were damaged. You may have to provide proof of the damage to these items, though.
