James Toseland, 2x World Superbike Champion & former MotoGP competitor

A crash in Aragon, Spain in 2011 caused career-ending injuries to my wrist and forced me to retire early. As professional athletes, we accept that our careers tend to have a shorter life span than most but to have things end so quickly, and not on my terms, was a major shock. Thankfully, I had longstanding support from Henderson Insurance Brokers Ltd (HIBL) – the people behind the new SportsInsure brand – and they took care of everything to ensure that I had a good settlement that was paid out quickly and made me financially secure for my years post-racing. It was a huge relief to have everything taken care of for me at a time when my biggest concern was not being able to race anymore and what I would do to fill my time. The settlement gave me breathing space to come to terms with what happened and plan my future without financial pressures. I’m lucky enough to now have the time and security to be able to focus on my second passion, music, and I do a bit of TV pundit work to keep me busy. I’d highly recommend SportsInsure to any professional athlete and people competing in motorsport at all levels
