The question

What does legal expenses cover include?

The answer

Expert legal support when you need it most:

  • If you’re involved in a motor accident which is not your fault, we will cover up to £100,000 legal costs for a lawyer to pursue compensation from the driver who is to blame (e.g. personal injury, your excess, travel expenses)*. We will also pay your legal costs should your claim not be successful.
  • Up to £10,000 legal costs for a lawyer to defend you if you’re being prosecuted for a motoring offence (e.g. speeding fine)*.
  • 24 hour UK legal helpline - confidential legal advice on motoring issues (e.g. private vehicle sale).

*The lawyer will discuss your case with you and represent you if it is more likely than not that you will be successful. For further info see policy wording.
