Our accidental death and dismemberment insurance can provide compensation for your expenses in the event of an accident and trigger a tax-free, one-time payment if the accident leaves you with decreased bodily function or reduced capacity to work as previously. The policy can also provide compensation for diagnoses that are not normally covered by accidental death and dismemberment insurance.
You can probably live with a small scar from a graze, but an injury after an accident can have consequences you may not have imagined – especially financial consequences.
Our insurance covers major and minor incidents and provides extra security.
Under our insurance, complaints such as frostbite, heat stroke and sunburn, infection from a tick bite, sudden torsional stress on the knee or a ruptured Achilles’ tendon, detached retina, sudden deafness, heart attack or stroke are also classed as accidental injuries.
Compensation paid out under the insurance policy is tax free.
You can purchase this insurance if you are covered by a group agreement with Euro Accident and:
You can purchase this insurance until the day you turn 65.
You also have the opportunity to purchase insurance for your spouse, cohabiting partner or registered partner. They will then be co-insured with you.
This insurance applies up to and including the month of your 67th birthday, or until you are no longer covered by the group agreement for whatever reason.
Jessica (aged 37) falls off a ladder while picking apples and damages the anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee.
She has to have surgery to repair the damage to her knee. Jessica is off work for two months after the operation. Despite the surgery, her knee is still painful when she puts pressure on it, she feels insecure and suffers from reduced mobility.

Financial invalidity means a chronic reduction of the capacity to work as the consequence of an injury from an accident.
The insurance sum for an insurance policy is the maximum compensation payable from this policy.
A group agreement is an agreement concluded between Euro Accident (the insurance provider) and a representative of a group – an employer, for example – concerning insurance for the members of the group. The group agreement states, for instance, which insurance policies the group members hold or can choose.
Medical invalidity refers to a chronic reduction of a bodily function as the consequence of an injury from an accident.
Accidental injury refers to a bodily injury that the insured person suffers as the result of a sudden, involuntary and unforeseen external incident.
In this context “unforeseen incident” does not apply to complaints or difficulties the insured person was taking medicine and/or being treated for before suffering the accidental injury.
Accidental injury is also taken to apply to bodily injury caused by frostbite, heat stroke or sunburn, as well as to infection from a tick bite. Such bodily injuries are considered to have occurred on the day they appear. Accidental injury is also taken to apply to bodily injury caused by sudden torsional stress on the knee, or bodily injury comprising a ruptured Achilles’ tendon, detached retina, sudden deafness, heart attack or stroke.
The price base amount is the amount calculated on the basis of the changes in the general price level pursuant to the provisions of the Social Insurance Code (SFS 2010:110). Calculations are performed on the basis of changes in the consumer price index and set by the government for a whole calendar year.
