58-23-8 Accident, disability, and medical benefits included in supplemental coverage.
Accident, disability, and medical benefits included in supplemental coverage.
Supplemental insurance coverages shall as a minimum include:
Accidental death benefits of at least ten thousand dollars payable upon the loss of life of
the named insured which shall result directly from and independently of all other causes
from bodily injury, other than sickness or disease or death resulting therefrom, caused by
accident sustained by the named insured while occupying an automobile, or entering or
alighting therefrom, or through being struck by a motor vehicle while a pedestrian, if
death occurs within ninety days of the accident;
Indemnity of at least sixty dollars per week for disability extending beyond fourteen days
from the date of the accident for a period of at least fifty-two consecutive weeks during
such period of time as the named insured is prevented from performing the usual duties
of his regular occupation, by reason of injuries and disability accidentally sustained and
arising while occupying an automobile, or entering, or alighting therefrom, or through
being struck by a motor vehicle while a pedestrian. If the injured named insured is a
person not gainfully employed at the time of the accident, the supplemental insurance
coverage may provide that the indemnity per week may be reduced fifty percent. The
disability benefits shall be paid in full without reduction because of any benefits available
under any workers' compensation law or similar law or from any other source;
Indemnity to the named insured and to any other insured, irrespective of legal liability, for
medical expenses in an aggregate amount of at least two thousand dollars for each such
injured person, incurred within two years from the date of the accident by reason of bodily
injuries arising out of the use of the automobile described in the policy or through being
struck by a motor vehicle while a pedestrian.
