What does legal cover provide?

Motor Legal provides cover following a motor accident or incident where you are not to blame.

It provides up to £100,000 to pay lawyers’ costs to help you to claim financial losses (such as your excess and travel expenses) or compensation for personal injury from the person who is responsible.

The lawyer will discuss your claim with you and must believe that it’s more likely than not that you’ll succeed in a claim for those losses.

The cover also provides up to £10,000 to pay lawyers’ costs to help defend your legal rights if you’re accused or have committed an offence under the road traffic laws (eg a speeding fine).

There’s also a 24 hour legal advice helpline providing confidential legal advice on any legal matter relating to the use of your vehicle, eg a private vehicle sale.
