Personal Injury Benefit
Many people know that their motor insurance policy provides significant compensation to any passengers killed or seriously injured in a motor accident.
However, few people realise that as the driver at fault, their motor insurance policy often provides minimal cover if they are the one killed or seriously injured. The Personal Injury Benefit therefore provides the at-fault driver with additional financial benefits to help bridge this gap.
At-fault driver injury
If the policyholder or any named driver on your policy are driving your car within the UK, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands and suffers a bodily injury in a motor accident which is their fault, Sheilas' Wheels will pay the following:
- Death - £100,000
- Permanent total disablement - £100,000
- Loss of (or loss of use of) one or more limbs - £100,000

- Loss of hearing in one or both ears - £100,000
- Loss of speech - £100,000
- Third degree burns - £100,000
The policyholder or named driver will receive a cash payment towards the cost of treatment shown below, in the event of an injury sustained where they are the driver involved in a ‘fault’ accident claim within the UK, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands:
