If you have had a road accident as a cyclist then you can make road accident claims in Cwmbran against the person that was at fault for the accident. The things that you might be claiming for as a cyclist may be a little different from the things you may be claiming for if you were driving a car, but you are just as entitled to make a claim if you are a cyclist as if you are driving a car.
When it comes to making your claim, it is helpful to know what you can claim for, so here are some of the things that you should be able to get compensation for.
Damage to your bike
Your bike is likely to have been damaged in any serious accident, and you may be able to claim for damages on your insurance or the other person’s insurance, but compensation should be able to cover this as well.
Damage to your personal possessions
Your personal possessions are far more likely to have been damaged if you have had a collision on a bike, as you are more exposed when you are a cyclist. If, for example, you had an mp3 player or phone on you which was damaged when you fell from your bike, you can claim this back as part of your compensation claim.
You are most likely to want to make a compensation claim for injuries to your person caused by the accident. Go to a doctor as soon as possible after your accident, and get a medical certificate which lists your injuries and what is most likely to have caused them, as this will be a great piece of evidence in your case.
