Whether it's over an argument with your neighbor, business partner or employer, a complaint about an online purchase or a vacation gone wrong, it's increasingly common for disputes to end up in court, and that can quickly become expensive. Legal protection insurance helps you to assert and defend your rights without having to worry about the cost.
If you lose a legal dispute and don't have legal protection insurance, you'll have to pay court costs as well as the fees billed by both your own and the other party's lawyers. Legal protection insurance thus makes sense as a way to guard against financial risks and claims that might be made against you personally or your business.
No, legal protection insurance isn't mandatory, but it is highly recommended. Unexpected legal disputes can arise at any time – whether you're a tenant, employee, road user or patient. Our insurance offers you all-round protection.
Do you have your own business? Legal conflicts can also take you by surprise as a company owner, for example if a neighbor officially objects to the conversion of your office building, an insurance company refuses to pay out on a claim or you have trouble with the authorities in connection with a permit.
Yes, you'll find a large selection of useful documents and templates on a wide range of topics at www.myright.ch. You can also opt for a one-time consultation and simply pay for it online. When you take out legal protection insurance, legal advice on the insured areas is included. The Legal Advice PLUS module entitles you to three hours of advice on all issues relating to Swiss law.
It's good that you already have liability insurance, be it as a private individual or a company owner. That's very important. Your liability insurance will essentially cover the cost of any loss you cause for a third party, such as the cost of repairing a car after an accident that was your fault.
However, legal protection insurance can help you if someone else has damaged your car but their liability insurer refuses to cover all or part of the cost. This isn't covered by your liability insurance. Liability and legal protection insurance thus complement each other perfectly and offer all-round coverage.
Problems with neighbors, insurance companies, or the authorities: anyone can find themselves facing a legal dispute, often out of the blue – and costs can quickly mount up. AXA-ARAG commercial legal protection helps you to assert and defend your rights without having to worry about the cost.
