Why would this be surprising. If you fall ill in you can't work and make money so of course you would be in financial ruin. Unless of course you have A and L's excellent critical care cover!!! Although 50 % would be in financial ruin if they were to have an accident or fall unwell a tiny minority of this amount actually will find themselves unable to work.
