Home Legal Aid Ver... close During a conflict

Taking out legal expenses insurance still makes sense during a conflict?

Often people only think about taking out legal expenses insurance when it is necessary, for example when a conflict is already going on. Conflicts happen at the drop of a hat. Whether it is a forced dismissal, a quarrel with neighbours or a traffic conflict: legal aid comes in handy. But does it make sense to take out legal aid insurance during an ongoing conflict?

Unfortunately, legal assistance insurance does not cover ongoing or anticipated conflicts. This means that if you only take out legal assistance insurance when you already have a conflict, you will not receive legal assistance for it. The same goes for a conflict that you had seen coming, such as an announced reorganization. Still, even during a conflict it can be wise to take out legal expenses insurance.

Reasons to take out legal expenses insurance during an ongoing conflict

Most insurers have a waiting period with legal expenses insurance. This means that you do not have immediate coverage the moment you take out the insurance. Therefore, you have no coverage for ongoing conflicts. It varies per insurer how long the waiting period is. Most insurers apply a waiting period of 3 to 6 months.

Even if you do not receive legal aid for a current conflict, you can still take out legal expenses insurance. You then insure yourself for a conflict in the future. You have experienced yourself that a conflict can happen to anyone, at any time. By taking out insurance now, you are assured of good legal assistance later.

In addition, taking out legal expenses insurance has another good reason. After all, you can seek advice from lawyers. This is usually free of charge. Do you need further assistance in addition to advice? Then you often get a discount on the rates of lawyers affiliated with the legal expenses insurer. You can also ask for free legal advice at the Legal Help Desk.
