Why you need third-party cycling insurance
It’s a nasty thing to have to think about. But should the worst happen, third-party liability insurance could really save your bacon.
If you were involved in an altercation with a pedestrian or motorist out on the road, you could end up being sued to fork out for medical costs, loss of earnings, court costs and lots of other nasty surprises.
Someone who knows all about this misfortune is this guy. Robert Hazeldean was left to pay £100,000 out of his own pocket after being sued by a pedestrian when they collided on a busy junction near London Bridge. The judge ruled that both were equally to blame for the incident but only the pedestrian was allowed a payout because they had put in a claim.
It’s in these exact circumstances that Laka’s third party liability cover is designed to protect you.
What’s included in your Cover
The Laka liability cover suits every type of cyclist. No matter what you ride, you’ll get up to £2,000,000 that you are liable to pay including legal costs if you injure someone, or damage their property whilst using your bike.
The amount you can be asked to pay takes into account:
- The claimant’s medical costs
- The claimant’s loss of earnings
- The cost of replacing or fixing what’s damaged
Your cover also includes international cover for up to 90 days per trip (excluding the USA & Canada). You’re also covered for every discipline of bike racing from mountain biking to triathlon. However there are some exceptions if you’re being paid to participate.
