Do you know the top 5 industries for Occupational Accident insurance?

Occupational Accident is a Cost-Effective Alternative to Workers' Compensation for Today's Growing Gig Economy.

As industries like Overnight Delivery, Home Care, Dog Walking and Rideshare continue to expand, independent contractors, like any workers, are susceptible to on-the-job injuries and should be adequately covered in the event of a loss. Independent contractors benefit from the freedom and flexibility of freelance work, but are missing other crucial offerings typically available to an employee.

Occupational Accident insurance can fill the gap when a traditional WC policy is not a fit. A business owner can choose an Occupational Accident group policy from All Risks to provide Accident Medical, Accidental Death & Dismemberment, and Disability coverage for an independent contractor who is injured while on-the-job. 

Occupational Accident is very versatile. Here are the top 5 industries Occupational Accident coverage is best suited for, eligible classes and minimum group size required:
