Legal expenses offer you, or your personal representative(s) cover to assist in the pursuit of legal proceedings against a third party to seek damages or compensation.
You can look to seek compensation in relation to certain issues:
- If you have suffered an injury within 24 hours before the wedding date, or 24 hours after the wedding date.
- If you are denied service or participation from a contracted or potential Wedding Service Supplier if the denial is in contravention of the Equalities Act 2010 or related legislation.
The underwriters will take control of the legal proceedings and appoint your legal representation. It is also the choice of the underwriters if they wish to pursue legal action; for example, if the case doesn’t have a chance of being won or the evidence is insufficient a claim may be rejected.
