If we deem it worthwhile that you pursue court action we can pay up to £100,000 (including VAT) towards legal costs. This also recovers the cost of personal injury compensation, alternative travel arrangements, and loss of earnings amongst other things that are not covered by our insurance policies.

We can also pay up to £100,000 for legal costs to help defend the customer for a motoring incident.
