If your bike, equipment or clothing has been damaged in a cycling accident that was not your fault, you can claim compensation for your loss. These types of claims are known as ‘consequential losses’ as a result of the accident. It will help your claim if you are able to prove loss by keeping any damaged property, and holding on to receipts for replacement items. It is also advisable to visit a cycle repair shop and obtain a quote for the cost of repairs for your bike, and if it is beyond repair, ask the bike shop to confirm their diagnosis in writing.
Damaged Property as Evidence for Cycle Claims
Damaged property also has the potential to be important evidence, so it’s important to keep any damaged components of your bicycle, cycling helmet, lights, clothing, or anything else you have with you at the time of the accident, should they be required. Our advice page on what to do after an accident may give you some tips to help you with your claim.
