How can Personal Accident cover help me?

No one likes to think about having a road traffic accident but they do happen more often than you might think. In the UK there are estimated to be over 14,000 road traffic accidents each week, that’s 730,000 each year**. We generally don’t spend time considering what the implications would be on our everyday life if we were involved in an accident but they can be wide spread. Personal Accident Insurance can provide financial support to help with the practical things, such as taking the kids to school or doing the housework.

  • Can help to replace some of the income you may lose by being unable to work.
  • Help to cover mortgage and bill payments if you’re not able to work temporarily or you could not return to your usual work due to permanent injuries.
  • Pay for any help needed at home should you be out of action. This might include help with childcare, cleaning or home maintenance.
  • Pay for taxis if you are unable to drive. This could include transport to any appointments you may need to attend but could also be used to pay for taxis for the family to visit you in hospital or any family taxi duties you usually perform.
  • Help to cover the costs of adapting your home if you were to suffer a life changing injury that meant adapting your living accommodation.
