Marine Insurance Australia can arrange personal accident insurance which can provide a lump sum or weekly benefit following accidents ashore as well as at sea.
Limits apply to benefit levels and periods of cover. Please contact us for a quote on your specific level of cover required.
Due to certain laws in various states you may find that depending on how you renumerate your crew you cannot cover those individuals against injury through workers compensation or work cover. As a result you have an alternative to take out a Personal Accident policy on their behalf or the crew can seek this cover themselves. Sunderland Marine offer a variety of Personal Accident policies tailored to meet each individuals need in the event of an injury which will give you and your crew peace of mind that you can continue to have an income until such time as you can return to work. These policies also carry a capital benefits component which offers lump sum payments in the event of a serious injury or even death. We encourage you to contact our office to find out what protection you require depending on the state within Australia that you operate
