Protection Against Legal Costs

Legal Expenses Insurance

Gus Campbell Solicitors Portadown are pleased to be able to offer Legal Expenses Insurance to clients to provide financial protection against legal costs. Legal expenses insurance is typically purchased as an add on with home or motor insurance – however it can also be purchased on it’s own. Unlike most insurance products, this insurance policy is purchased “after the event”, that means that you can avail of the benefits of the policy after you have suffered the loss for which you are claiming.

Solicitors in Northern Ireland cannot offer “no win, no fee” arrangements. However, with the cover of the After the Event legal Insurance Policy, if the case is unsuccessful, the policy will safeguard against legal costs and pay out the costs you could be ordered to pay. Ordinarily, if you lose your case the legal costs can be substantial since you are required to pay your own legal costs and the costs of the other party. With the insurance policy, a premium is payable to the Insurer only in the event of a successful case. The Insurance provider does have the right to decline to cover a case if they decide that there is a negligible chance of the claim winning. Our expert solicitors will advise you about your case and will prepare your case to give you the best chance of a successful claim.
