Personal Accident & Illness
The Insured is a 34 year old Carpenter who suffered a bulge to his lower back whilst lifting a ladder in July 2019. Doctors notes suggested that back injury was chronic in nature however the Insured advised that he had only attended his Physiotherapist and Chiropractor for muscular strains and for general “up-keep” of his back over the years.
The Insurer investigated the claim and medical records confirmed that the back consultations were related to a strain or other parts of his back. The claim was accepted and the Insured received weekly payments of $1,200 for 12 weeks.
