CLAIMS CORNER

The following claims example demonstrates the benefits of our Personal Injury cover under a Family Legal Expenses Insurance policy.

The policyholder was visiting a retail store whilst on holiday in France. Upon exiting the store, a large glass sliding door closed on him and knocked him to the ground, resulting in the policyholder breaking his leg and spending two months in hospital.

The policyholder wanted to make a claim against the store for compensation from the incident and therefore submitted a claim form to Arc Legal, who appointed a panel solicitor to represent the policyholder. They were able to settle the claim pre-proceedings, with the policyholder accepting compensation of €38,276.36 from the store.

The legal costs incurred by the solicitor were all covered under the policy. Without Legal Expenses Insurance, the policyholder could have been left with high legal fees to pay; adding to the strain of an already stressful situation.
