You would be surprised just how often you rely on others to help you out on a daily basis. You may ask your father to quickly deliver an item to a customer, your children’s friends may come to the office to help count inventories, etc. These people are obviously happy to oblige, but what if they end up having an accident? They will need to be properly insured. That's why we recommend that you take out separate insurance on their behalf.
Why you should go for accident insurance for unpaid helpers
Who is insured?
Individuals who assist by doing unpaid work at your business.
Note! Individuals residing with management are not deemed unpaid helpers.
What is insured?
- The costs of medical care and related expenses are insured up to a maximum amount of 12 500 euros per accident and per insured helper. The deductible from the insured costs amounts to 125 euros.
- Daily compensation of 13 euros in the case of temporary work disability as from the 31st day after the accident and for a maximum of two years.
- Compensation in the event of permanent disability of more than 5%.
- An additional compensation payment of 46 875 euros in the event of serious permanent injuries (67% or more). After sustaining serious permanent injury, long-term help may be needed from third parties or special alterations may be required to the victim's car or home (installation of a lift or wider doors), in which case additional compensation is very useful.
- Compensation in the event of death in a sum of 12 500 euros or reimbursement of funeral expenses up to an amount of 5 000 euros.
What you need to know
- If, as part of your business activity, you send your helper on the road, any accident during that journey is insured.
- Even if your helper does odd jobs at a company director's home, they are insured.
