MLEI is an additional cover you can offer your motor insurance customers to cover the costs of pursuing their legal rights in a range of circumstances.

As a motor insurance policy provider, there are two key reasons why it’s a good policy to offer MLEI.

  1. Motor policies only ever cover damage, repair or replacement of the vehicle, and not the payment of legal fees if, for example, your customer is injured and wishes to seek compensation, needs to pay for medical care or recover lost income.
  2. Selling MLEI as an additional cover generates additional revenue streams and where offered appropriately, provides real customer benefits driving customer loyalty and brand reputation benefits to your business.

What’s included on a Motor Legal Expenses insurance policy?

There are a range of covers that can be included:

This provides cover for the legal fees your customer would otherwise incur in pursuing a claim for damages against the at fault party.
In the event of a motor claim, your customer pays their policy excess and has to buy any replacement personal items damaged or destroyed in an accident – a laptop in the boot or a bicycle on the roof – these may not be insured. Having MLEI gives your customer protection from the legal fees incurred in recovering the cost of these items.
Where your customer faces a criminal prosecution for even a minor motor offence Motor Prosecution Defence cover gives your customer protection from the expensive legal fees incurred where, for example, a customer faces a speeding offence or is accused of running a red light.
This will cover your customer’s legal fees where they wish to pursue a claim against a business with whom they contracted to buy or hire vehicle related goods and services from. For example, a dispute with a repair garage which causes vehicle damage or fails to carry out a service to a proper standard.
Where your customer’s vehicle is damaged during an accident, it could take days or weeks for a repair to be completed and the cost of a hire vehicle may not be included on their motor policy. Cover can be provided on an appropriate basis to ensure your customer isn’t left stranded without transport.
