Personal Injury Introduction
We urge all members to take out their own personal injury policy. Obviously there is inherent risk in undertaking any sport but please ask questions of yourself when thinking about taking part in your sport, like if you were to lose the use of a limb how would that affect your career prospects? If you are studying for medicine for example and you lost the use of a hand that could be detrimental to your studies and eventual career path. For a relatively small annual fee you can take out your own personal injury and accident insurance that will cover you should the worst happen.
