I doubt your insurance company will foot the bill in this case, your legal cover is for accidents and injuries

Hi I was thinking this myself. I have found out I get all legal costs covered by my insurance anyway. 

 

I would be surprised, I have never heard of an insurance company represent you in court should you get a ticket and risk loosing your license. I would be very surprised if that does work in your favour - I hope it does - but dont be surprised if all of a sudden theres a reason that they cant or wont pay out.

 

If it does offer the full protection, share the details of the insurer, it would be handy to learn more!

AFAIK:

 

Legal cover is only there to provide you with solicitors to pursue someone for your losses that would not be paid out by your insurance, if you are not at fault. In this instance, you have committed a road traffic offense, there was no accident, therefore legal cover is not applicable in this instance.

Legal cover does *not* cover you for anything related to speeding offences.  I'm sorry, but it just doesn't.  It covers you for matters pertaining to pursuing or defending against a third party following an accident/damage/injury.  That's it.  I used to work in a motor insurance brokers dealing with 60+ insurance companies.

Legal expense cover CAN cover you for motoring related offences, for example, if you are a member of the CSMA, Frizzel's offers cover of up to £100,000 for legal representation to assist in the recovery of uninsured losses arising from an accident OR to defend a motoring prosecution.I am fairly certain that others offer this too.

As I said in my first topic I don't need comments like yours saying you deserve to be banned... I've already learnt my lesson wether it comes through or not. Thanks

Keep it civil Guys.

Mactell knows that what he did was daft and dangerous.

Rubbing it in and posting messages having a dig at him are unacceptable.

 

'May he without sin cast the first stone' and all that.

 

Further potentially abusive posts/content will be classed as bullying and will be deleted or edited without notice and the offending members formally warned.

 

End of chat!

+1 I'm no celeb
But when I brought the Levin home the speedo needle went off the clock,
As result I honestly don't know what speed I was doing,
And I didn't know it could go off the scale :lol: or as fast as whatever speed it was past the scale
Thankfully I wasn't caught as I had no insurance at the time :lol:
I'm joking ... seriously
