WHEN INSURANCE JUST ISN`T ENOUGH
Whether or not you have insurance, a road accident will almost always end up costing you time and money, even if you're not at fault. And while comprehensive insurance may cover you for the cost of repairs to your vehicle, there are many costs and expenses it does not cover. These include compensation for personal injury, medical expenses, car hire charges, lost earnings and many others.
And without comprehensive cover, you may end up paying for your own repair, towing and storage costs. Claiming these costs from the driver at fault, or their insurer, can be time-consuming, complicated and stressful.

Legal Cover makes sense
It's a known fact... that the majority of people are unsure of what their rights are when confronted with legal problems.
Most people are convinced they can not afford a lawyer and often try to unsuccessfully handle legal problems on their own. Others are intimidated by the law or are simply unsure of how to find the right lawyer for their matter.
Whatever the reason, foregoing legal help can lead to damages far beyond the scope of the original problem. As a road user you can suffer anxiety, frustration, and financial loss as a result of an accident. LegalShield, provides free legal assistance for road users who are involved in no fault accidents as well as the practical support to get you back on the road as soon as possible, plus the legal support to help you reclaim your losses from the driver at fault.
