A Case for Group Personal Accident
Mr. Kaustubh Chandra, an employee with a leading software industry, is the sole bread earner of his family that consists of his wife Shelly and two minor children. Kaustubh’s office is located almost 20 km from his home and he commutes to the office daily by his personal car. This takes up a lot of his time, almost 1.5 hours, every day to and fro.
On the way to work one morning, suddenly an overspeeding bus from behind strikes his car and sends it flying across the divider to land turtle on the other side. Kaustubh, trapped inside, badly injured, lies unconscious.
In an instant, his life has been shattered. Kaustubh has been permanently disabled as both his legs have had to be amputated as they have been completely battered, forming gangrene.
His company’s group accident insurance policy helps Kaustubh smoothen out some of the discomforts. Not only does he get a sizeable amount of money for his disability, his ambulance travel charges are also fully reimbursed. This helps cover some of the huge costs they had to incur in treatment and rehabilitation of Kaustubh.
