Selfinflicted Injury

Definition of "Self-inflicted injury"

Intentional injury caused by the person injured. For life and health insurance purposes, self-inflicted injury typically is not covered by accident policies, because it is intentional, not an accident. This applies for workers compensation insurance purposes as well. However, for life insurance purposes, suicide is covered after the policy has been in force for two years.
