What Is Community or Civic Participant Insurance?
Community or Civic Participant Accident Insurance is designed to meet the special insurance needs of a variety of groups, including those in under-served industries. Because a group’s special events and activities are not typically covered under standard accident policies, community or civic participant accident insurance from The Hartford can be designed to cover a single event or all of a group's activities during the year. Specifically, this coverage can help pay for the medical costs associated with injuries, illnesses or even deaths that result from an accident at a covered community or group event.
For example, if someone falls off a tractor during a community-sponsored hayride event and breaks a leg or cuts themself while racing in a soap box derby at a scout event, community or civic participant accident insurance could help cover the costs of medical care and treatment of those injuries.
