A noteworthy report for all contractors was issued this month highlighting the importance of holding personal accident insurance. The report confirmed that the self employed were at most risk of financial loss if hospitalised. Of 400 contractors surveyed, an amazing 72% didn’t have any kind of insurance that would help the financial burden of being unable to work through a workplace accident.
When purchasing insurance cover such as professional indemnity and public liability for their limited company, it is obvious that some contractors neglect the significance of obtaining cover for themselves in the case of accident.
A contractors self employed status means they are likely to have no other person to hold responsible following an accident, but a simple affordable personal accident cover could protect them from the inevitable financial pitfalls.
