What is the cost of having an accident?
Accidents cannot be foreseen and may happen when you least expect it from a financial perspective. Depending on the injuries you sustain you could be impacted by costs including:
Loss of income whilst recovering in hospital
Loss of income if temporarily disabled
Additional costs for staying in hospital i.e. car parking costs for your family to visit and incidentals such as TV and telephone costs to make your recovery comfortable
Child care costs if you or your partner were to suffer an accident and be either temporary disabled or recovering in hospital
Cost of travelling by taxi if you were temporary disabled and needed to get to hospital for regular check-ups as part of your recovery
Costs for adapting your home if you were to suffer a life changing injury that meant you needed to change your living accommodation
Mortgage payments and bills if you could not work temporarily or you could not return to your original work due to permanent injuries
The cash benefits of our personal accident insurance can help to remove the financial worries of paying the everyday cost of living if you or your partner were injured as a result of a travel accident.
