What is Legal Insurance (And why do you need it)?

Legal matters are not something anyone plans for, and with the emotional and financial strain caused by such matters, it’s easy to understand why. But at the end of the day, they are often simply unavoidable and sometimes a consequence of simple day-to-day life. Take, for example, matters of unpaid debt, unfair dismissal, incomplete or unsatisfactory work done on a property, theft, divorce – these are all daily occurrences in our country and all of which would require the assistance of a legal professional.

This is where our powerful product, Legal Angel, steps in. A legal policy that is built to protect you from the financial and emotional burden of legal issues by providing cover that gives you access to a team of legal professionals, without having to pay excessive bills; making it affordable to protect your legal rights.

What is covered with Legal Angel?

Legal Angel covers four areas of law; Civil (e.g. monetary claims based on contracts), Labour (e.g. Unfair dismissal or salary disputes), Family (e.g. Unopposed and opposed divorce), and Criminal (e.g. Theft, Murder, Rape and Assault). The Benefits under Legal Angel include:

  • Litigation Cover
  • Divorce Cover
  • Unlimited Mediation
