Finding Legal Help When Things Go Wrong

Even though we've just said that you don't actually have to pay an accident claim solicitor for services and that no-one would use their insurer's appointed solicitor to sue the insurance company - there is a side to legal assistance cover provided by insurers that might actually be useful. Again, not many people bother to read what's actually included or even check when stuff comes up. But for most policies the included legal assistance will cover non-car related matters as well such as home insurance claims, family law, business disputes and more. There will obviously be limits but make sure to read up and check just in case. They'll be betting on most people not noticing, as I'm sure that if everyone in the UK starting phoning up for free legal help every time they needed it - the insurer/solicitor would go bust pretty quick:
