Personal Accident Cover FAQs

What does Personal Accident Insurance cover?

 

Qdos Personal Accident Insurance provides up to £50 per day hospital benefit, and a lump sum payment up to £50,000, in the event of bodily injury as a result of an accident. The amount paid differs based on the injury suffered: please see table of benefits provided.

The accident does not need to have occurred during the provision of services.

 

Please note this policy does not provide cover in the event of:

- the Insured Person’s suicide or attempted suicide or intentional self-injury or the Insured Person being in a state of insanity;

- the Insured Person's own criminal act;

- the Insured Person being under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

- an Accident occurring outside the United Kingdom, European Economic Area, United States of America, Canada, Australia or New Zealand

- the Insured Person’s participation in any Hazardous Pursuit (as defined in the policy wording) such as extreme sports or activities in open seas

- any condition for which the Insured Person has sought advice, diagnosis, treatment or counselling or of which the Insured Person was or should reasonably have been aware at inception of this insurance contract or for which the Insured Person has been treated at any time prior to inception of this insurance contract.

What is the difference between Personal Accident and Contractor Sickness Cover?

 

Personal Accident Insurance provides a lump sum benefit in the event of bodily injury caused by an accident, as set out in the table of benefits provided. The Qdos policy is available to any self-employed individual including limited company contractors, sole traders, and freelancers.

Contractor Sickness Cover is currently only available to limited company contractors, and also includes a lump sum in the event of accidental death. Click here for more information on this policy.

Is Personal Accident insurance the same as Income Protection Insurance?

 

Income Protection Insurance is a term used to describe a type of insurance cover which provides financial benefit in the event of a number of circumstances which may cause you unable to provide your services, such as unemployment, jury service (See Jury Service & Legal Protection), and illness.

Qdos Personal Accident Insurance is a type of income protection cover for the self-employed, which provides a lump sum financial benefit in the event of an accident, helping you to keep your business afloat whilst you may not be able to work.
