Sickness and accident insurance
Sickness and accident insurance helps replace some of your income if you are off work because of an illness or an accident. This is an insurance that many people pay as part of their normal outgoings. What many do not realise is that they are also paying for personal injury cover, it is included in most premiums these days.
Motor insurance, household insurance, employers insurances and many other types of insurance include cover for compensation claims, although many of the insurance companies never advertise the fact.
This does mean however, that if you are injured in an accident that was not your own fault and want to make a claim for compensation against whoever was to blame, the majority of the time it is an insurance company that settles your claim.
Would you claim from your sickness and accident insurance?
A lot of the hype about Britain being a compensation culture is totally unfounded.
Many of the people who do not claim compensation would have no qualms about claiming from the sickness and accident insurance, or perhaps their motor or household insurance. When it comes to compensation, though many of them feel it is not right to make a claim.
What they should be thinking is it not right that someone else caused them to be suffering, someone else should not have turned their life upside down and someone else should not have caused them financial difficulties. Why should that someone else not have to pay for what they have done, although it would be their insurance company pay in reality?
