Sickness & Accident Insurance Claims
Sickness & Accident Insurance policies often include income protection monthly payments, mortgage or loan repayments, and death lump sum or disability benefits for incidents or sickness that happens while the policy is active.
What you need to know
We act on a no-win, no-fee basis for these types of cases, which means you will not be charged until the end of the case, dependent on the result.
Most people have Sickness & Accident Insurance cover provided by consumer credit insurance (CCI), and by employers, unions or sporting clubs.
CCI covers you if your capacity to make payments on a loan or other forms of credit is affected. This is usually involved in claims made due to sickness, accident and unemployment.
In many cases, you will not be aware of the terms and conditions on accident and sickness insurance, which vary between insurers, as a copy of the policy is not always provided.
Claiming accident and sickness insurance can sometimes be difficult, and many insurers promptly decline claims or stop paying these claims after a short period.
Our Sickness & Accident Insurance lawyers can help you to successfully challenge the decisions of insurers. We will help you to work through the fine print in your policies so that you can gain access to your full entitlements.
How we can help
We can assist with:
- providing advice about what you might be entitled to
- negotiating a claim on your behalf
- issuing court proceedings if the matter cannot be satisfactorily resolved.
