Who is my cycling claim against?

Your cycling accident claim is made either against the person responsible for causing the accident. For example, if you were knocked off your bike by someone who was driving, the claim will be dealt with by their insurer.

How long will the cycling injury claim take?

This will depend on several factors including, the severity of your injuries and whether liability for the accident is disputed. At Corries we do try to obtain compensation in the fastest time whilst still getting you the best compensation.  

What is the time limit for making a cycling accident claim?

You have up to three years from the date to make a claim. There are exceptions to the rule for children under the age of 18. A parent can make a claim on a child’s behalf at any time before the child reaches the age of 18. After the child has turned 18 they have until they are 21 to make a claim themselves.

Can I make a claim that I was partly to blame for causing the cycling accident?

You can still claim cyclist compensation even if you were partly to blame for causing the accident, it may however mean that you will receive reduced damages. 

Can I make a claim for a hit-and-run accident?

If it’s not possible to trace the driver involved, we can help you to make a claim through the Motor Insurer’s Bureau (MIB). This is a fund that all insurance companies pay into on an annual basis to compensate the victims of untraced drivers.
