Legal expenses insurance is one way that you can choose to pay for your medical negligence claim, if a no win no fee agreement or legal aid funding are not appropriate or not available to you.
You may already have an insurance policy that covers your legal fees up to a certain value. Some home insurance policies and life insurance policies build in legal expenses insurance, so it is definitely worth checking your current policies to see what they cover.
One thing to keep in mind is that your insurance will usually only cover legal fees up to a certain amount, depending on your level of insurance cover. If you are worried that your insurance won’t cover the full amount, speak to your medical negligence solicitor about other ways you might be able to fund the remainder of your claim.
It is also possible to take out something known as ‘after the event’ insurance. This protects you from costs that might be incurred throughout the legal process of your negligence claim. This includes your opponent’s fees and so can be useful protection to have in case you lose your claim – especially if you don’t have a no win no fee agreement in place.
Our specialist medical negligence solicitors can answer your questions and give you more information about how both legal expenses insurance and “after the event” insurance policies can work for you. They can also advise you on the best place to look for a good “after the event” policy to cover your claim.
