Personal Injury Cover (Assurance Accidents de la vie)(2)

Available to fiscal residents in France only.

Did you know 1 in 4 personal accidents take place in the garden?

Did you know 1 in 2 of these accidents happen away from your French home?

If you are a French resident you may already have heard about our Personal Injury Cover from Pacifica. Cover is provided in the event of a domestic accident such as slipping down the stairs or falling off a ladder whilst painting.

Extra 3rd party public liability for your children in school and during extra-curricular activities is also included and is more extensive than normal school insurance found in a Home and Contents policy.

What’s more the cover has just got better and now includes:

  • cover for your grandchildren should they have an accident whilst residing with you in France without their parents,
  • accidents occurring whilst taking part in high risk sports (Integral option only),
  • psychological support should your child be subject to cyber harassment ,
  • if you are 50 years plus and hospitalised for more than 48 hours an emergency payment per event covered will be paid out of 50€ per day –up to 60 days.
For more information on the Integral or Initial cover contact us today.
