What our coverage includes

Accident and injury – including:

  • Permanent total disablement (also known as career-ending insurance)

  • Temporary total disablement (also known as wage protection)

  • Liability – including public and employers’ liability

  • Property – including material damage and contents cover

I had a career-ending insurance policy provided by Lockton to protect my future earnings from the game. Thankfully this proved to be essential following my enforced retirement from professional football as a consequence of injury.
