The Necessity of Legal Expenses Insurance for Tradesmen and Women 

When the going gets tough, you need to make sure you have the right people in your corner. That’s what Legal Expenses Insurance from Rhino is all about. Legal Expenses Insurance is a policy which will protect you during some of your most challenging moments. 

The Stress of Legal Troubles 

When legal troubles strike, what happens? For most of us, panic and stress soon follow, as we consider the costs of hiring legal representation and the impact this would have on yourself and your family. 

Many people have no idea where to start when it comes to seeking legal advice or defending themselves. This can lead them to make poor decisions based on fear or lack of knowledge – decisions which can cost them in the long run!

It’s no secret that legal challenges can come with a huge price tag. The cost of basic legal advice alone can be several hundreds of pounds, and when it comes to instructing a solicitor and paying for court appearances, the costs may be tens of thousands. No matter how well your business is doing, paying this sort of money out of pocket is too much for the average trades business to bear.

Why Tradespeople Are Vulnerable to Legal Issues

“Where there’s a blame, there’s a claim”, so the popular saying goes. And for many businesspeople these days, it seems like a claim is never too far away. 

Tradespeople are particularly vulnerable to claims made against them. But why?

Consider the nature of a trades business. You’re self-employed, so this automatically means you’re liable if someone has an accident on or around one of your job sites. You’re also on your own if one of your employees claims unfair dismissal, or if you enter into a dispute about property. Further, if you’re called up for jury service, you can’t make an income for the duration of the trial. Again, you’re on your own. And it goes without saying that if a client isn’t paying for services you’ve delivered, it’s up to you to chase them into court to try to reclaim what you’re owed. 

Your Own Personal Legal Defence

For a small monthly or annual fee, you can add Legal Expenses Insurance to your core Public Liability Insurance cover with Rhino.
