ARC LEGAL IN THE NEWS… OPINION: THE ROLE OF LEGAL EXPENSES INSURANCE IN 21ST CENTURY JUSTICE

The number of adults in the UK with unmet legal needs has reached an alarming level, but do insurers have one solution that could narrow the justice gap?

Tim Mullin believes so. In a new article for Insurance Age, Tim argues that insurers will play a crucial role in helping individuals and businesses in the UK access justice by highlighting the value and benefits of an often-overlooked product, Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI).

“Before the event LEI provides customers with access to 24/7 expert legal advice and guidance to navigate any legal problem whether it be contentious or not.” – Tim Mullin

The difficulty in accessing legal support has accelerated over the past five years thanks to a number of factors; financial insecurity, court backlogs, and confusing processes all create hurdles for those who need help.

LEI is a product that could play a significant role in 21st-century justice but, Tim argues, the onus is on us as an industry to champion the benefits of the product to customers.

“Education is essential to raising the profile of this product in 2024, and we must all work together to understand and promote the key benefits of LEI to customers and increase access to justice.”

Read the full article here to find out how the industry can work together to champion LEI as a valuable solution for clients, helping them access legal help as well as a myriad of other benefits. (subscription required).
