What is Personal Accident Cover?

Personal accident cover in layman terms helps to protect you as an individual whilst on/off the track from potential accidents that can arise. Accidents can happen at any time and having a personal accident policy in place to cover you should a temporary or permanent accident happen, can only help to protect and secure you within the motorsport industry.

Personal accident cover can also help to not only protect you as an individual, but your team members also should you be a part of a race team group. If an accident occurs to a member of your team or you personally, your personal accident policy will cover you.

Whether you and/or your team are professional or non-professional motorsporters, it doesn’t matter, you can still take out a personal accident policy with us here at Grove & Dean Motorsport.

Having a personal accident policy securely in place can only help to benefit you both on and off the track. As mentioned above, there are several benefits to the policy,

helping to protect you from circumstances such as, Emergency assistance, Accident death & disablement, permanent total disablement, medical, rescue and repatriation expenses.

Like most personal accident policies our policies generally pay out lump sum when the policy terms are satisfied in a valid claim – if, for example, someone suffers injury as a result of an accident or unforeseen event.

Policies usually make clear that the insured person is not covered if the claim is caused by “sickness, disease or any naturally occurring condition or process”.

Generally speaking, personal accident insurance policies cover the following as standard: death, permanent total disablement and loss of, or loss of use of, a certain body part (such as an arm or leg).

Some policies also provide cover for permanent partial disablement, temporary total disablement and/or temporary partial disablement.

But it’s worth noting that personal accident policies only offer protection against accidental death and bodily injury. They don’t cover the insured against sickness or disability, which are often covered by other types of insurance cover.

If your racing programme takes you outside of the UK (and the care of the NHS) then having cover for Medical Expenses and Repatriation is an important consideration. In the event of being taken to Hospital abroad then the Policy will cover any medical bills and pay for your transportation back to a Hospital (or your home) in the UK.
