I drove into a traffic light but my insurer won't let me claim for personal injury - is this correct?

Recently, on a very dark and rainy night, I was turning from a minor road onto a major road. I looked into my mirror whilst turning into the road. As I was looking behind, I went over the middle island of the road. There should have been a bollard, but there wasn't. I then hit the traffic lights as they were in my blind spot whilst turning. My car was a write off and I believe I'm getting the money back from my insurer. However, they said I can't claim for any injuries because I didn't hit another vehicle. Is this true?

As the driver of the vehicle, you cannot claim for personal injuries to yourself.
