If you have a road traffic accident involving your car that is not your fault, you have a right to be able to claim back your uninsured losses from the driver responsible.
Our motor legal protection cover will provide up to £100,000 of legal costs to help you recover losses that cannot be claimed on any insurance policy as long as it is more likely than not that your claim will succeed.
Examples may include:
- Compensation for death or Injury
- Accident repair costs if you do not have comprehensive cover
- Damage to your clothes, luggage or personal belongings if you do not have comprehensive cover
- Hire car costs
- Loss of earnings
This cover also provides protection for any one else authorised to drive or use the car and for any authorised passengers.
The solicitor acting for you will handle all aspects of your claim such as locating a specialist (i.e. a medical expert) should this be necessary as a result of injury resulting from the accident. The specialist charges will be met by this motor legal protection policy.
The appointed solicitor is regulated by the Law Society and, should you choose to appoint one of our solicitors, they will also have to operate under our own high service level protocols – ensuring that you receive the professional legal service you would expect.
All in all providing you with peace of mind and a hassle free solution when you need it most.
If you need to make a claim, we'll do all we can to get you back on the road as soon as possible. Follow our step-by-step guide.Claims information
