Cycle Injury Compensation


Can You Make a Cycle Injury Compensation Claim?

If while cycling you are involved in an accident with another vehicle, or you are injured because the road has not been repaired, then you can make a cycle injury compensation claim.  The accident must have happened no more than three years before you make your claim.

If you are only claiming for damage to your cycle you can do this providing that no more than six years have lapsed.

What can you claim for?

Every cycle injury compensation claim is different, but there are general things that most people can claim for:

  • Injuries to yourself, whether physical or psychological
  • Damages to your cycle.  Most insurance companies will repair your cycle if it’s economically viable.  If not they will usually pay the pre-accident value of the cycle, which may be less than you originally paid.
  • Any travel costs incurred because you cannot ride your cycle to and from work after being injured (You will need evidence to support this)
  • Damage to your clothing (Usually subject to a deduction for wear and tear)
  • Reasonable private treatment costs
  • Loss of earnings (You will need proof of this)
  • Care and assistance costs

Do I Need to Prove the Costs I Claim?

Yes, the insurance company will want as much proof as possible. It is a good idea to keep all original purchase receipts for your cycle and accessories.  Get a quote for repairs and replacement of anything that is damaged, making sure you use a reputable cycle shop.

Take photographs of the damaged goods and your own injuries.

Keep receipts for everything you have to spend as a direct result of the accident.

You will need to prove your loss of earnings, which is fairly straightforward if you are employed and have wage slips.  However, if you are self-employed it is not so easy to prove, and you will probably need to enlist the help of your accountant to show your losses.
