A legal expenses insurance covers legal assistance in the event of a conflict or imminent conflict. The event that caused a conflict had to be unforeseen when you took out this insurance.
When you have taken out legal expenses insurance and there is a conflict, the last you want is an additional conflict with your legal expenses insurer. But this happens. Then it is time to consult an independent legal expert.
Do you have a conflict with your legal expenses insurance about the feasibility of your case? Do you disagree about how your case is handled? Then you can ask for the application of the conflict settlement procedure. The exact rules are included in your insurance policy. Usually, it is arranged that you can ask for a second opinion prepared by an independent expert at the expense of your legal expenses insurer. You and your legal assistance insurer are bound by the outcome of this second opinion. Not every scheme in every policy is identical. Your legal assistance insurer can explain to you the applicable dispute settlement procedure.
According to the dispute settlement procedure, the costs of the second opinion are usually borne by the legal assistance insurer. You can often choose the lawyer who will give the second opinion yourself. The legal assistance insurer will then make financial agreements with the lawyer, who will then start working on the basis of the documents and issue the second opinion. Our lawyers regularly give a second opinion as a legal expert and are happy to do this in your case.
If you have a dispute with the legal expenses insurance or you disagree with the approach of the legal expenses insurance lawyer, you can contact one of our lawyers without obligation to submit your question about a second opinion. Call or email us. Our motto is not for nothing: "Your problem, our concern."
