RACCIDENT INSURANCE (risk insurance for TrackDays)
With the support of its partner solution+benefit, SAM has managed to conclude an ideal collective license insurance for motorsport enthusiasts. In addition to a lump-sum death benefit of CHF 10,000, every SAM license includes an addendum that not all of them already havecovered reductions in daily allowances and disability pensions by taking a risk, up to a maximum of CHF 250,000. This means,This risk insurance always steps in if there is no other coverage for the assumption of benefit reductions in daily allowances and disability pensions (e.g. UVG supplementary insurance).
Unfortunately, when it comes to accidents, it is often found that many high-risk athletes do not have adequate insurance in the event of an accident. Race track events that insurance companies classify as absolute risks. According to Art. 39 UVG and Art. 50 UVV in the case of non-occupational accidents that are the result of a risk, the cash benefits (e.g. daily allowances) are reduced by half and, in particularly serious cases, are even refused.
^Now every driver gets the all-round carefree package with his SAM license and is thus automatically insured. For a fraction of the usual costs, possible reductions due to risky daily allowances and disability pensions are now covered up to a maximum of CHF 250,000.
