Accidental damage is one of the top three Allianz Home and Contents Insurance claims. One common culprit - kids throwing objects indoors. It only takes one toy, or remote, to shatter your flatscreen. But it’s not just kids causing accidental damage in the home.
Keeping your home in good condition requires a certain level of attention. Maybe you’re a busy parent, maybe you live with someone who’s a little bit clumsy or just unlucky with breakages. Either way, accidents around the house can happen. However, being mindful of your home space can help reduce the likelihood of accidents occurring in the first place.
Adults break things too
Allianz Home Insurance claims data from 1 January 2020 to 31 December 2022 shows almost 30,000 claims for accidental breakage or damage around the home. It’s not just kids who account for common claims such as:
- Smashed TVs from moving furniture around.
- Dropped tech, such as laptops and iPads.
- Holes in the walls from moving house.
- Red wine spills and stains.
Whether you’ve spilled a glass of red wine on the carpet, or the kids have kicked a rugby ball through the window, our optional covers can help sort out some of the damage.
