Accident and sickness insurance claims

Many people have sickness and accident insurance policies provided by consumer credit insurance (CCI), and by employers, unions or sporting clubs. Your cover can include income protection monthly payments, mortgage or loan repayments, and death lump sum or disability benefits for incidents or sicknesses suffered while the policy is in force.

CCI covers you in situations where something has affected your capacity to make payments on a loan and/or other forms of credit—and it's usually involved in claims made due to sickness, accident and unemployment.

Terms and conditions vary between insurers, and often you won’t be aware of these because you don’t always get a copy of your accident and sickness insurance policy. That's why our sickness and accident insurance lawyers are experts at working out the fine print in insurance policies to help you get your full entitlements.
