When accidents occur on school property or during supervised school activities, it can present potential liability to schools as well as financial hardship to affected families. Educational institutions across the country deliver a wide range of educational opportunities to help enrich the lives of children. Field trips, team sports, and other extracurricular activities provide students with dynamic, new ways to understand the world beyond the classroom setting. Yet accidents can interrupt these activities. That is where Student Accident Insurance may come into play. At AIG, our insurance companies consult with our broker partners and clients to develop programs that provide insurance protection for students in grades K–12.
