Can I make a cycle claim?

If you have been injured in an accident whilst out cycling, then you may be able to make a cycle claim, even if you were partly to blame. If the cycling accident was caused by a motorist then we will claim against the driver’s insurance company on your behalf. If the accident was as a result of a poorly maintained road then you may be able to recover compensation against the local authority.


How many years since the accident can I claim?

If you’ve been unfortunate enough to be involved in a cycling accident in the last three years, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. 


How can I make a claim for a bicycle accident?

To start your claim, you can call us on 0808 278 3372 and speak with one of our
specialist advisors who will be able to help you understand the merits of your claim and how best to proceed. Alternatively, fill out our online claim form with details about the accident and type of Injuries that you have suffered and we’ll get in touch with you.


What can I claim for?

Your claim will be split into two categories – general damages and special damages. General damages is the compensation that you will receive for your cycle injuries including pain, suffering and loss of amenity. Special damages cover all of your out of pocket expenses arising from the bike accident and will include both past and future losses. Special damages include repairs to your bike or a replacement if it is damaged beyond economic repair, replacement clothing and equipment, private medical treatment, travelling expenses, prescriptions, medication, etc.


What types of bike accidents do you deal with?

We help cyclists that have been involved in a range of different types of accidents, including vehicle collisions, spillages, pot holes and many more - if you’re not sure you have a potential claim, we offer all new customers a completely free, no-obligation assessment.   


What types of cycle injuries can I claim for?

We understand that the severity of cycle injuries can vary considerably, which is why our
experienced team deals with claims of all types and will handle each individual case with the
sensitivity and expertise required. Some of the most common cycling claims include back
and spinal injuries, elbow injuries, soft tissue injuries, collarbone fractures and head injuries.


Can I claim for a cycling injury caused by a pothole or other road defects?

Yes, a cycling pothole claim is one of the most common cases we handle. It is the local
council’s duty to maintain roads and pavements and ensure they are free of defects,
therefore it is their responsibility to make regular checks to identify potential hazards like
potholes. If you suffer an injury caused by a pothole or other road defect, it must be proven
that the local authority or Highways Agency have neglected their duty to maintain a safe
standard. You need to collect as much detailed evidence about the road defect that caused
the accident as soon as possible, including where the accident took place, photographs of
the pothole/road defect and contact details of any witnesses.


When is a pothole or road defect legally considered dangerous?

The defect that caused your cycling accident must meet at least these minimum measurements; 25mm for a road or 20mm for the pavement. .


Can I replace my bike?

Yes, if liability is admitted by the other party’s insurers you can recover the cost of any repairs to your bike or the cost of a replacement bike if it is damaged beyond economic repair.  We will ensure that you are awarded the pre accident value of your bike and can arrange for the bike to be independently inspected  to ensure that you receive the maximum compensation. If you arrange for your bike to be repaired or replaced it is important that you keep evidence of the damage such as photographs and/or a report from the person that repaired it.


Can you arrange for my bike to be repaired?

Yes, we can deal with all aspects of your claim and have the appropriate experience to do so.  At CIC we understand how important your bike is and can arrange for a specialist to inspect your bike and prepare a report in relation to the damage. They will also provide an estimate for the cost of repairs or advise if a replacement is necessary and that the bike is beyond economic repair.  Alternatively, you can ask your local bike shop to prepare a similar report and provide an estimate of any repairs.  CIC will then request an interim payment from the responsible parties insurers to help you get back on the road as quickly as possible.


How long does it take to settle a cycle accident claim?

The time it takes to settle a claim can vary, depending on the nature and severity of the
accident, as well as the extent of damages or injury and if liability is admitted or needs to be
proven. Simple claims can be completed within 6 months, whilst more serious and complex
cases can take over a year.
