Accident Insurance For Children

The children’s case is forgotten just because it is thought, for some inane reason, that children are less exposed to accidental risks. But, this is not true at all. Children are very susceptible to accidental injuries, so what if they do not drive on the roads? The scenario is slowly changing though; parents are realizing the importance of accident insurance for children. They want to know that in the event of anything bad happening to their children, at least there should not be a financial crisis.

Accident insurance for children is generally included in family health insurance policies. These policies are indeed worth going for as they cover major risks to which your son or daughter is always exposed to. Health insurance for children can cover illness and broken bones but generally covers everything that happens to a child health-wise. Accident insurance slightly differs from the health insurance as it covers the physical damage due to unwanted events such as vehicle accidents, falling from heights, skiing injuries, shock, drowning etc.

Your child is exposed to the world and so to the risks too. Accidents on school trips are unfortunately not covered by accident insurance companies but looking to the demand, many companies are now coming up with new policies that cover those accidents too. You can also ask for the school trip accident insurance to the school itself.

One of the main benefits in accident insurances for children is that the premiums are lesser than those in similar adult insurance. The premium is less because the risk is less in case of children. There are some insurance policies that cover both; accidents and also health problems as they are covered in mediclaims (medical claims).
