What is Group Accident Insurance & Why Do Your Clients Need It?

Group Accident insurance is a policy that provides financial coverage for expenses incurred from an injury to a student, athlete, fan, volunteer or an event participant. This type of policy pays regardless of fault.

Why Insurance Brokers Should Consider Suggesting Group Accident Insurance To Their Clients

As an insurance agent or broker professional, you care about your clients and want to provide them a valuable and suitable insurance product. With that in mind, have you considered Group Accident insurance as part of your coverage offerings?

Most people assume that if a person is injured while interacting with an organization or business, they are either automatically covered under workers’ compensation or a commercial liability policy. It’s not as simple as that.

Organizations normally have liability insurance. However, for a liability policy to apply, negligence on the part of the organization or business must first be established. In addition, general liability insurance usually comes with a deductible that must first be paid before claims payment begins. Employees are covered under workers’ compensation but not participants such as students, athletes and volunteers.  That’s where group accident insurance comes into play.
