Activities of Daily Living

In insurance, the term “activities of daily living” denotes all activities which would typically be carried out on a regular basis.

These include things like using the bathroom, cooking, commuting to work, or anything else which could be expected to be part of your everyday life.

Accident insurance, for example, may not cover injuries incurred as part of activities of daily living if no extraordinary or external events played a role in causing the accident.
