Motor legal expenses insurance

Motor legal expenses insurance can be a valuable addition to your clients’ general motor insurance policy.

How motor legal expenses could help your customers

When your customer has a car accident, their motor insurance policy will take care of the vehicle repairs and general liability, but others costs could arise. That is where motor legal expenses comes in. 

If the accident wasn’t their fault, motor legal expenses insurance could help with the recovery of the losses not covered by their main policy, for instance: Helping cover the costs of legal representation in the event of a personal injury, or recovering costs associated with damaged belongings.

Motor legal expenses insurance also provides customers access to telephone legal advice to help them with motor related legal enquiries regardless of whether they need to claim on the policy or not.
