Personal Accident Injury
Basically, as a referee, you are covered for personal accident injury when you are travelling directly to and from a game and during the game itself. You are also covered if injured whilst on official society business. If you sustain an injury during this time you will need to make a claim on the Referees’ Association policy.
It is absolutely imperative that whether you ultimately make a claim or not, you register the injury with the Referees’ Association by asking them directly, yourself, for a claim form. The Association will register your claim as soon as you request a form. You should request a form if you feel that you may make a claim. Do not wait for the outcome of tests or visits to your doctor or hospital please obtain a claim form straight away directly from the Association. By doing this your claim will be registered.
After consultation with your medical practitioner or hospital, and after your injury has been diagnosed and certified, send the completed claim form immediately to the Association. The Association will acknowledge your claim and forward this to the insurance broker for processing.
“We endeavour to make the process of making a claim as pain free as possible. We manage claims and make settlement with the view of getting you back refereeing as soon as possible.”
Should you have any query with the processing or payment of your claim, or if you want specific information on the policy details, please contact Bill Hudson by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone on 0161 711 0304.
