The Life Insurance Market
Car drivers and their passengers may need to use their sickness insurance to provide a financial buffer for them if they are injured in a car crash.
This comes after the British Osteopathic Association (BOA) announced that 13 per cent of motorists risk internal injuries by not sitting in the right position in relation to their seatbelt.
The BOA advises that seatbelts should be secured over the pelvic bone, not the stomach, and should also touch the shoulder to mitigate against neck injuries like whiplash.
The survey was conducted as part of Back Care Awareness Week, and also discovered that despite a fifth (18 per cent) of people driving at least six hours a week, many are unaware of proper positioning.
This can lead to unnecessary injuries, which could require people to take time off work and claim on their sickness insurance.
