Aggregator site GoCompare has released its study into which professions are most likely to make an insurance claim on their car insurance policies. The results aren’t too good for those of us who work in the insurance industry!
Three insurance sector professions made it to the top 20 with claim rates well above the national average of six per cent. In the top ten were insurance consultants, with 10.18 per cent of them claiming in the past five years. Then came insurance representatives, with 9.42 per cent making insurance claims, followed by (even more ironically) claims adjustors at 9.39 per cent.
However the study revealed that it’s health care professionals who are, by some margin, the biggest claimants. GPs came in top, with nearly 13 per cent of them lodging at-fault claims in the past five years. Hospital consultants were a close second with 12 per cent, while hospital doctors and surgeons were in fourth and fifth place, with just over 10.4 per cent of them making insurance claims.
Meanwhile the least likely to claim on their car insurance were car dealers, abattoir workers and car wash attendants.
