Personal Injury Information Sheet: Legal Expenses Insurance
The below information provides further detail on Legal Expenses Insurance and its relevance to Personal Injury cases.
What is Legal Expenses Insurance?
Some people will have a Legal Expenses Insurance policy that may cover some, or all, of the legal costs of your claim. These can be provided by your Trade Union (if you are a member of one) or as an addition to your motor insurance, your breakdown association membership, your home/contents insurance or bank account/credit card facility. You may not be aware if you have a valid Legal Expenses Insurance policy and so it would be helpful - as you will see below - to make enquiries with your insurance company as soon as you can to help speed up the process.
Why do I need to know?
The law requires us to check for you to see if you do have any Legal Expenses Insurance before we can offer you a No Win No Fee Agreement. We must check any Legal Expenses Insurance policy ourselves to ensure we can properly advise you on the best way of funding your claim to ensure you are fully protected.
What do I need to do?
Just bring with you to your appointment any of the following insurance documents in your name:
- Motor insurance policy
- Home/contents insurance policy
- Breakdown assistance membership details
- Details of any insurance policies with your bank/credit card
If you are a member of a union, then please tell us.
Should you prefer, you can send any of the above documents and details through the post to us. Please send these to us by Recorded or Special Delivery. We will return the original documents to you by Recorded Delivery once we have copied them for our file.
