8 Reasons You Need Legal Expenses Insurance

Rhino Trade Insurance 23 October 2023

For tradesmen and women in the UK, running a trade business can be incredibly rewarding. Whether you're a plumber, electrician, carpenter, or any other type of tradesperson, you take pride in your work and strive for success. However, in today's complex business environment, there are various legal challenges that can threaten your livelihood and reputation. 

As the trade industry is littered with risks and hazards, you should know how legal expenses can help protect you. Today, the team at Rhino Trade Insurance want to explore the top 8 reasons why trade businesses need this type of cover. Let's get down to business!

Protection Against Employment Disputes

Running a trade business often involves hiring employees or subcontractors. While you strive for a balanced working relationship, disputes can arise, including issues related to wrongful termination, discrimination, or harassment. Legal Expenses Insurance can cover the costs of defending against such claims, ensuring that your business doesn't suffer financially in the event of a legal battle.

Contractual Disputes Resolution

Contracts are the lifeblood of any trade business, and disagreements with clients, suppliers, or subcontractors can be inevitable. Legal expenses insurance can help you resolve contractual disputes efficiently and cost-effectively, ensuring that your business relationships remain intact while you protect your bottom line.

Debt Recovery Assistance

Non-payment or late payment of invoices can be a significant challenge for trade businesses. Pursuing unpaid debts through legal channels can be time-consuming and costly. Legal expenses insurance can provide coverage for the costs associated with debt recovery, allowing you to focus on your core business activities instead of chasing payments.

Health and Safety Compliance

Maintaining a safe work environment is crucial for trade businesses, but compliance with health and safety regulations can be overwhelming. Legal expenses insurance can offer support and legal expertise to ensure that your business meets all necessary health and safety standards, reducing the risk of costly penalties or legal actions.

Property Disputes

If you own or lease property for your trade business, property disputes can be a significant concern. Whether it's disagreements with landlords, neighbours, or other parties, Legal expenses insurance can cover the legal costs involved in resolving property-related disputes, protecting your business's interests.

Data Protection Management

In today's digital age, one wrong move and the floodgates can open. If you manage to have a serious data loss, you not only will face legal action but also have your reputation damaged. Legal expenses insurance can provide assistance for data protection that will see your reputation stay intact, helping to safeguard your business's bank balance and image.

Personal Injury Claims

Accidents can happen at any moment - especially on a busy trade site, and if someone is injured on your work premises or as a result of your services, you may face personal injury claims. Legal expenses insurance can help you manage the legal costs connected with defending against such claims, ensuring that your business doesn't suffer financial setbacks.

Access to Legal Expertise

Perhaps one of the most significant benefits of legal expenses insurance for trade businesses is access to legal expertise. Legal professionals can provide guidance and support on various legal matters, helping you make informed decisions that protect your business's interests. This access to expertise can be invaluable when navigating the complexities of the legal system.
