Lots of people have this insurance as part of policies on their car,
motorcycle, van or house. The policy can be bought as a stand alone policy,
but few people search it out. The policy will allow you to pursue a
compensation case, and cover your liability to pay your own solicitor’s
costs and disbursements, and those of the other side, if your case fails.

The policy will have an indemnity level, which is the maximum the legal
expenses insurer will pay. You cannot increase the amount of this indemnity,
so if the costs risk in your case is greater than the amount of the policy
indemnity you may be advised to take out additional insurance.
