Legal Expense Insurance

Funding litigation can be a daunting prospect. However, usually it will follow two routes. If you have legal expense cover, either as part of your household insurance or credit card cover, then this will be used to cover the uncertainty of having to pay the other sides costs should the case be lost.

If you do not have legal insurance cover already in place, then you can purchase a cover. This is known as after-the-event insurance and the premium is recoverable from the other side if you win. As stated above, even if the case is lost there will usually be an arrangement in place so that nothing is payable by you.
