Sickness Insurance

Sickness protection insurance is valuable cover from Lycetts and highly recommended for all professionals.

In addition to the standard personal accident cover, we recommend sickness insurance for tree surgeons, principals and self-employed arborists and forestry contractors whose income would cease if sickness were to prevent them working.

 

Benefits can be increased and temporary total disablement benefits for sickness can be included. The maximum sickness payment period is for one year.

How to claim sickness insurance.

It is a condition of all insurance policies that incidents that may result in claims are reported to insurers without delay. If such incidents are not reported within an acceptable timescale (usually 30 days from the time of the incident), your insurers may refuse to indemnify you.

 

In the event of a claim in relation to a commercial business policy you should contact your Lycetts account executive/handler as soon as possible. When completing claim forms, ensure the whole form is completed as far as possible and it is signed on your behalf or your company’s behalf by an authorised person. For sickness cover claims, please note:

 

  • Serious injuries or fatalities must be reported immediately by telephone to enable your insurers to investigate should they wish. It is not acceptable to wait until the claimant has returned to work.
  • Minor injuries should be reported as soon as possible.
  • Wages details and copy sick notes should be forwarded without delay so as not to prejudice interim payments.

HI TECH SPORTS EQUIPMENT AND THE RISK OF UNDERINSURANCE

May 26, 2017

The thing about sports equipment and accessories is that we tend to buy things one at a time and do not always realise their accumulated value until it is too late. Underinsurance is therefore a significant risk.
