Celebrities and Personal Injury

We all know the world of celebrity is a whole lot different from our own; theirs is a land where talent means millions and if injured, celebs have the money to help them recover, and ours is a place where any kind of personal injury can be financially devastating. However, have some celebs taken things just a bit too far? When your voice, body or even face are the things that make you money, it would be considered wise to insure them so that if anything happens you won’t lose money, but what about other body parts: how far is too far?

You want to insure what?

Insurance in the business we call show appears to be a little more complicated than the coverage us mere mortals may seek, and sometimes it isn’t always obvious what body parts stars will choose to insure. For example, when you think of Mariah Carey, what do you think she would want to cover in the case of an accident? Her voice right? Wrong! Well, yes of course she insures her voice, but did you know that she also insures her legs for a staggering $1 billion? That’s nine zeroes folks – for legs! And what about living legend Sir Tom Jones; his gravelly tones are sure to be worth a few quid, but his chest hair? Seriously? Yes, apparently the Welsh wailer considers his torso tendrils to be a major part of his persona and insures them for $7 million. May want to stay away from romantic, candle-lit situations, hey Tom? For more shocking celerity insurance figures, take a look at the BBC website.

You’re not Famous, You’re Not Insured, but You’ve been Hurt – What Now?

Thankfully, even if you don’t have insurance and you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, there are laws in place that mean you can submit a claim to cover medical costs, loss of earnings and for compensation due to stress, anxiety and emotional pain. Access really useful advice about personal injury claims on the GOV.UK website.
