If a member of your family has been involved in an accident resulting in major trauma or a serious injury, then you may be covered for legal expenses under an existing insurance policy.
Many car insurance, house insurance, travel insurance, credit cards, critical illness and life cover policies, and trade union insurance policies offer legal support as part of the package – which you may be able to use to finance a claim.
If you have suffered a major trauma and have a Critical Illness insurance policy in place, then we can check to see if the policy will pay off the remaining balance of your mortgage and deal directly with the insurance company on your behalf.
The details of what is covered by your insurance policy is usually found in the policy schedule. It is best to let our Solicitors have a copy so that they can clarify with the legal expenses insurers the existence and nature of the cover in place before major costs are incurred.
What we check for you:
We will make sure your policy covers you by checking:
- Does the policy include legal expenses insurance?
- Who is covered on the policy?
- Are you covered by another policy owned by another member of your family?
- Does your critical illness policy cover your mortgage and potentially pay it off?
- Which solicitors are you allowed to use?
