PERSONAL ACCIDENTS INSURANCE: Personal accident insurances are mandatory for Tourism Companies, as such this is a mandatory insurance. Furthermore, this is an important type of insurance because unforeseeable events might occur. Personal Accident insurance responds to the needs of individual security and family welfare regarding the risk of accident. It covers expenses with healthcare and even compensation, in the event that the trainee is permanently incapacitated from the accident. This responsibility will therefore be transferred to the Insurance Company through the Personal Accidents Insurance subscription. Allianz Group Personal Accidents Insurance offers a base coverage package that assures protection towards the most severe risks, such as death, invalidity, treatment expenses and funeral expenses. The Insurance Holder, WERIDE, should inform the people that make up the group about which insurance coverages are contracted, keeping proof that the information was provided. In case of injuries, medical assistance should immediately be sought. The accident should be reported to Allianz Portugal, in writing, up to a maximum period of 8 days. The accident description report should include a medical report with the nature of the injuries, respective diagnosis and, if applicable, the expected days of working incapacity and indication of a possible Permanent Disability.
