Martial Arts Schools / Studios
Accident & Liability Insurance Coverage provided by Francis L. Dean and Associates of California, LLC:
Participation in today's Martial Arts can provide physical fitness, discipline, self defense and entertainment....but can also result accident and injury. In the past, accident and liability coverage for Martial Arts Schools or Studios was either too costly, too limited, or not available at all. Individuals were either forced to pay extremely high insurance premiums or to run programs without proper insurance protection, therefore running the risk of personal exposure to lawsuits or a participant's injury claim.
However, now a comprehensive program has been developed to specifically cover the inherent risks involved in running a Martial Arts School or Studio. This Martial Arts Accident and Liability Insurance Program is designed to help eliminate the financial and emotional burden one can incur as a result of a lawsuit or participant injury claim.
The Accident Coverage ($100,000.00 Benefit): Pays the medical bills of an injured student or staff member
Who Is Covered
All youth and adult students and staff members of the Policyholder are covered while participating in sponsored activities. A member is also covered while traveling, directly and without interruption, to and from any Policyholder sponsored activity and his or her home or place of residence.
Accidental Death & Dismemberment
If a covered injury results in any of the losses specified below within one year after the date of the accident, the Company will pay the applicable amount.
Full Principal Sum for loss of life ($50,000.00)
Full Principal Sum for double dismemberment ($50,000.00)
50% of the Principal Sum for loss of one hand, one foot or sight of one eye ($25,000.00)
25% of the Principal Sum for loss of index finger and thumb of same hand ($12,500.00)
If the Principal sum is payable, no indemnity will be paid for dismemberment. In any event, the double dismemberment indemnity is the maximum amount payable under this Benefit for all losses resulting from one accident.
Maximum Medical Expense Benefit
If the Covered Person incurs eligible expenses as the result of a covered injury, the Company will pay the charges incurred for such expense within 52 weeks, beginning on the date of accident. Payment will be made for eligible expenses not to exceed the Maximum Medical Expense Benefit of $100,000.00, subject to a deductible amount of $250.00. The first such expense must be incurred within 60 days after the date of the accident.
