A director travelled to Malaysia on business. While he was there, an explosion occurred at his accommodation; this resulted in him suffering 48% burns to his head, face, arms and back. Due to the severity of his injuries two family members were flown out to be with the claimant. Following his admission to hospital the claimant passed away due to the injuries suffered from the accident. His insurance was for Personal Accident and Business Travel, and a claim was paid for the appropriate benefits under the Personal Accident policy, plus costs incurred under the Medical section, including the travel, sustenance and accommodation expenses of the two relatives. Additionally, the Personal Effects that were destroyed in the explosion were also paid for.

This was pursued and was successful in claiming damages from the responsible third party.
