Legal Expense is a unique coverage included with CAA Insurance property policies. It provides coverage for reasonable and necessary legal expenses incurred while pursuing or defending an accepted claim, including appointed lawyers, or other appropriately qualified persons, and additional expenses and disbursements such as court fees, experts' fees, police reports or medical reports.
With Legal Expense Coverage, the potential costs of a legal dispute no longer need to deter you from pursuing your rights.
When would Legal Expense Coverage help:
- You and your neighbour cannot agree on the property line, and he/she is now building a greenhouse that sits on your property.
- Your home renovation project did not go as planned.
- You receive an audit notification from the CRA and want to know your legal rights.
What does it cover?
Contract disputes (auto & non-auto).
If you are facing problems with the buyer or the seller of an insured vehicle, or with the garage or dealership where it was repaired. If you face a dispute relating to obtaining services, selling or buying goods.
If you suffer a bodily injury as a result of an accident and you wish to pursue your legal rights.
If you are experiencing legal nuisance or trespass, or if someone caused physical damage to your property.
If you wish to appeal a decision from the Canada Revenue Agency, or if you are facing an audit on your personal tax affairs.
