Having said that:

His expected utility, without insurance is simply:

$\displaystyle 0.05 \cdot \sqrt{5,000,000} + 0.95 \cdot \sqrt{25,000,000}$

First, we would have to define what "fully" means. Does it mean $25 MM? Does it mean the Expected Utility from above? Perhaps it means to pay $20 MM if he is injured?

In the last case, he is out $2,000 right from the start. What say you? What, exactly, does "fully" mean?
