  • Decontamination costs, storage- and destruction costs and/or consultants’ fees
  • production costs, loss of profit and loss of turnover

Possible coverages are accidental death (including heart failure), permanent sports invalidity due to accident or illness and temporary sports invalidity due to accident or illness.

The main characteristics of these products are:

  • coverage according to Belgian law and jurisdiction and 100% within HDI Global Specialty and not Common Law with different syndicates
  • cover in the event of loss of the opportunity to practise sport at a professional level, regardless of the possibility of practising another profession;
  • specific medical underwriting supported by an experienced specialised medical team, which allows us to insure parts of the body even if there has previously been a medical problem with that part of the body.
