Creechurch’s Legal Expense coverage is now available and is offered with all new and renewal quotes.
Legal Expense Insurance provides coverage for the legal fees and expenses incurred by a lawyer for specified matters covered by the policy. These matters are not generally covered by Professional Liability, Malpractice insurance or Commercial General Liability insurance. Matters include a variety of areas that relate to the particular profession and/or business, such as:
- Contract Disputes
- Employment Disputes
- Criminal Defence
- Property Disputes
- Personal Injury
- Tax Disputes
Statistically, 33% of Canadians over the age of 19 will need legal advice at least once a year. Unfortunately, the enormous cost of legal fees makes access to justice prohibitive. With premiums as low as a few hundred dollars, Creechurch can now offer policyholders the peace of mind that they can access the legal system without incurring undue hardship.
Legal Expense Insurance policyholders will have access to a toll-free hotline that will offer complimentary Telephone Legal Advice (TLA). Creechurch has partnered with Triton Claims Canada, a leading expert in Legal Expense Insurance to provide unlimited, instant access to a lawyer whenever immediate advice is needed.
The benefits of Telephone Legal Advice include:
- Unlimited access to toll free Telephone Legal Advisory Service (TLA)
- Policyholders can speak directly with a experienced Lawyer for immediate advice and assistance in respect to matters affecting their business activities
- Excellent Risk Management tool
Commercial Legal Expense insurance is available with every new business and renewal quotation for small businesses with annual gross sales and/or receipts of $10,000,000 or less. There are exceptions depending on types of risk.
