What is Accident Cover?
The alarming toll taken on South
Africa's roads and the many violent injuries suffered due to crime make
accident cover something we should all consider. But accidents happen in
many ways. You can also get hurt at home or at work. You can lose an arm
or a leg, your eyesight or your hearing. You might consider yourself to
be a healthy person but are you worried about accidents?
As if an accident weren't disastrous enough, such an injury can also
cripple you financially. And if you are not declared medically disabled
you will not be able to claim disability cover. Again, you will need to
make provision for additional expenses through an option such as
Matrix's accident cover.
What expenses should you
may need to learn new physical skills to compensate for your loss
– and therapy is usually very expensive.
may need to pay for structural changes to your home or car.
There are two ways in which accident
cover will benefit you.
you were to die in an accident, or as a result of violence, your
beneficiaries or your estate will receive an additional amount as
you suffer an injury as a result of an accident, you will be paid
out a lump sum. You are also covered against the loss of a limb as a
result of violence such as, for example, a hijacking.
Even if the loss is not completely
devastating - say you lose the hearing in one ear - you will still
receive a percentage of the sum insured.
