Churchill Legal Assistance Service
This optional cover is available for a small additional premium.
Legal Costs cover up to £100,000
This covers you if you have an accident involving your car that is not your fault and you suffer losses you cannot recover from any insurance policy.
We will pay up to £100,000 legal costs to help recover these losses from the party at fault as long as it is more likely than not that your claim will succeed.
Examples may include:
- Compensation for injury or death
- Accident repair costs if you do not have Comprehensive cover
- Damage to your clothes, luggage or personal belongings if you do not have Comprehensive cover
- Hire car costs
- Loss of earnings
Churchill Legal Assistance Service also extends protection for anyone authorised to drive your car and for any authorised passengers travelling in your car at the time of the accident.
The solicitor acting for you will handle all aspects of your claim, including locating a medical expert such as a physiotherapist or osteopath, if this is necessary for the treatment of an injury resulting from the accident. The specialist’s charges will be met by CLAS.
The appointed solicitor is regulated by the Law Society which, in addition to the high standards of service you would expect from Churchill, ensures that you receive a professional legal service.
CLAS provides you with extra peace of mind and a hassle free solution when you need it the most.
