Insurance for stepping on a LEGO brick
Have you ever heard the phrase “go step on a LEGO brick?” Hope that it doesn't happen to you, because it’s the single most painful thing you’re likely to experience.
Not only might there be damage to your foot for having stepped on the brick, your pride is also injured, and think of the poor brick that you've carelessly stepped on.
If the thought of walking on hot coals fills you with dread, then landing your foot on those little plastic studs isn’t going to be your idea of a good time. Luckily, you can cover yourself so stepping on a LEGO brick isn't as bad as all that.
What does it cover?
- “New for old” replacement bricks – if it’s a classic 2x4 stud piece, or an Iron Man minifigure; if your foot broke it, then it’ll get replaced.
- Medical treatment – your foot probably doesn’t look its best right now, so you’ll get swift medical care to take care of your injury.
- 24-hour assistance – it’s no picnic, stepping on a LEGO brick, and we want to be there for you. You’ll have access to specialist counsellors who will help you recover your damaged pride.
Other kinds of construction bricks may be excluded from cover.
Other points to consider
There are a few steps you can take to minimise the risk of you stepping on a LEGO brick:
- Don’t walk around the house barefoot (or even in socks)
- Invest in proper storage for your LEGO bricks so there aren’t any strays lying around
- LEGO sets would usually form part of your contents insurance policy, so if you manage to break an entire set, you could be covered separately (make sure you have accidental damage cover in place for this).
