Case Study

Jacqui was visiting some clients in London, when she slipped down a flight of stairs and fractured her hip and arm. In the hospital, she was informed that she would need surgery on her hip, and physiotherapy, before she would be allowed to fly home to Australia.

Jacqui’s flight was booked for the next day, she had to cancel the flight and stay longer for her treatment.

Fortunately, her employer was able to claim the costs of surgery and rehabilitation and additional accommodation while Jacqui underwent surgery, on the company’s corporate travel cover. The policy also covered the cost of cancelling her flight and even allowed her employer to hire a temp to take on Jacqui’s duties while she recovered.
