With most firms, Legal Expenses Insurance is typically offered as an add on with other insurance such as motor or home costs. However, here at Gus Campbell Solicitors, we are proud to be able to offer Legal Expenses Insurance as a standalone cost, allowing us to provide financial protection for our clients against legal costs. Most insurance costs are purchased pre-emptively, however this insurance policy is purchased after the event has happened: meaning you can still avail of the benefits of this policy even after the loss for which you are claiming.
Normally, if you lose your legal case, costs can be substantial as you will not only be paying to cover yourself, but also the costs of the other party. This is because Northern Ireland solicitors cannot offer “no win, no fee” arrangements as might be the case overseas. That is why Legal Expenses Insurance is an invaluable investment, as if your case in unsuccessful, the policy acts as a safeguard against legal costs for you.
Another great benefit of Legal Expenses Insurance is the ease and speed it can provide your legal case. When it is brought to attention that you have legal expenses cover you can proceed with your case without the hassle of having to find legal aid or secure funds for the case. It will also grant you peace of mind that all your legal costs are covered.
