As part of your Bikmo cycle insurance benefits, you have an additional policy for £100k cover for legal costs associated with claiming against a driver or third party responsible for an accident while you're riding your bike.
This could include help to get compensation for your injuries and any associated/uninsured losses.
For example, you have a legal right to claim back;
- the excess that you have to pay under your Bikmo cycle insurance policy;
- the cost of public transport or other reasonable alternative travel expenses that you have to pay until your cycle is replaced or repaired;
- the costs of rehabilitation;
- loss of earnings/loss of income
You also have access to free legal advice as part of the policy.
