Accident Insurance

What Is Accident Insurance?

Accident Insurance helps protect against the financial burden that accident-related costs can create. Accident Insurance from The Hartford complements other benefits, including traditional healthcare insurance. When it’s combined with Voluntary Critical Illness it offers employees an affordable, complete benefits package without undue expense to their employer.

Why Employees Need Accident Insurance?

Accident Insurance from The Hartford helps relieve financial strain for employees in the event of a covered accident, while also helping to curb costs. Claims payments are made in flat amounts based on services incurred during an accident.

In the U.S., a disabling injury occurs every second, and an accidental death occurs every four minutes.1 It’s important to make sure that employees have the coverage they need to protect themselves and their families.
