It also sets out the minimum benefits that are to be provided by this form of insurance. Offering additional benefits not only strengthens your protection, it also makes you more attractive as an employer.

  • the cost of medical treatment, medication, hospitalisation and therapies
  • daily allowance for loss of income
  • disability pension if the accident leads to disability
  • survivors’ and widow’s pensions if the accident results in death
  • financial compensation if the accident caused restrictions to perform simple, everyday tasks


What optional extras are available?

To enable your employees to enjoy an even better protection, you can take out additional cover for the following benefits:

  • cost of a private ward in hospital
  • financial compensation if the accident results in disability or death

How accident insurance works


A specific example

Marie Arnold runs a young consulting company that has two employees. One of these, Kurt Fischer, is involved in a traffic accident on his way to work. He is badly injured and taken immediately to hospital. Complicated knee surgery is followed by a long period of rehabilitation in hospital, with many sessions of physiotherapy. Kurt Fischer is strongly advised to undergo special therapy at a spa.


Fortunately, Marie Arnold has insured her employees well and doesn't have to bear the consequences of the accident alone, so soon after setting up her own company. Loss of income, outpatient treatment, hopital stay, medication and therapy: Generali pays for it all. What’s more, thanks to the supplementary insurance that Marie Arnold has taken out, Generali pays a daily indemnity equal to 100% of the salary right from the very first day.


The accident insurance has saved the company, which could never have borne all these costs on its own.


The premium is based on the insured risk, the supplementary insurance taken out and the total payroll for all employees. We grant a discount on supplementary cover if you also take out daily sickness allowance insurance with Generali.
