Extensive cover for personal motorists and commercial vehicle operators. Policy cover is offered alongside or automatically included within a motor insurance policy through a broker or insurer scheme. Elements of the policy are as follows:

  • Pursuit of a claim for damages (recovery of uninsured losses) following a motor accident.
  • Pursuit of a personal injury claim on behalf of an insured person.
  • Assistance in applying to the Motor Insurers’ Bureau if the party at fault cannot be traced or is uninsured.
  • A temporary replacement vehicle if the policyholder’s vehicle cannot be driven and needs to be repaired.
