What is accidental death and dismemberment insurance?

Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance, known as AD&D, is a form of insurance covering death or a specific type of injury as the result of an accident. In an event of accidental death, this insurance will pay in addition to any other life insurance held.

AD&D generally pays benefits for loss of limbs, fingers and sight. Death by illness, suicide, or natural causes is generally not covered by AD&D. The type of injuries covered and the amount paid vary by insurer and package and are explicitly explained in their policy jacket.

Chris Webre got me a great rate and exactly the coverage I needed for my business. He kept in touch with me throughout the process. If I had a question, he was quick to respond with an answer. He made what was quickly becoming a headache, a pleasure. I’m glad I went with Dan Burghardt Insurance for my general liability business insurance. Thanks Chris.
