Frequently Asked Questions

Can I still claim if I was not wearing a helmet?

Wearing a helmet can save your life or prevent you from getting serious head injuries. It is extremely important to wear a helmet whenever you are travelling on a bicycle. However, if you were not wearing your helmet during your accident, it does not affect your right to claim. Call Claims 24 for more advice and support on making a claim.

If you are 100% to blame for the accident, unfortunately, there is no legal basis to make a claim. However, there are times when you might be partially at fault and in this case you might have a chance to claim and split the compensation on a 50/50 basis.
Contact us and one of our qualified claim handlers will talk to you for advice on whether you have the potential for a successful claim.

Can I make a claim if the driver did not see me?

Unfortunately, cyclists are particularly vulnerable on roads as it is very common for drivers to not notice cyclists. Claims 24 strongly recommend making a compensation claim if the driver has not seen you as the driver’s negligence has caused you personal injury.
