Support and frequently asked questions

  • Is legal protection insurance mandatory?

    No, legal protection insurance is not mandatory, but it is highly recommended. Unexpected conflicts can arise at any time – whether you are a tenant, employee, road user or patient.

  • When will legal protection insurance help me, and why do I need it?

    Problems with your landlord, a dispute with neighbors or difficulties at work: anyone can find themselves facing a legal dispute, often out of the blue – and costs can quickly mount up. AXA-ARAG legal protection insurance helps you to assert and defend your rights without having to worry about the cost.

  • I have personal liability insurance. Isn’t that enough to cover legal disputes?

    It’s great that you have personal liability insurance. It protects you in cases where you’re at fault, for instance if you damage someone else’s car. However, if someone else has damaged your car, and you want to claim compensation, that’s when you need legal protection insurance. Personal liability and legal protection insurance complement each other perfectly and offer all-round coverage.

  • Does the insurance cover my whole family?

    Yes, if you have named each family member on the policy and they all live at the same address (confirmation of home address required). The family includes:

    • the policyholder
    • the spouse or registered partner
    • the cohabiting partner
    • children
    • lodgers
    • and any other person named on the policy who is registered at the same address
  • How can I take out personal, traffic or Internet legal protection with AXA-ARAG?

    Our modular legal protection insurance for private individuals is designed specifically for your needs and comprises six thematic insurance modules as well as one advisory module. You can choose whichever modules you want and combine them any way you like to create the legal protection you need for your life.

    We recommend the following:

    • For personal legal protection: Home & Everyday and Work modules. This covers you, for example, in legal disputes with your landlord or neighbor, problems with goods bought in shops or online, privacy violations or trouble in the workplace.
    • For traffic legal protection: Mobility & Travel and Health & Personal Insurance modules. This covers you, for example, in legal disputes relating to your car, traffic violations, travel contracts, traffic accidents, and personal injury. It also covers all kinds of disputes with insurers, social security authorities, and pension funds.
    • For combined protection: Home & Everyday, Work, Mobility & Travel, and Health & Personal Insurance modules
    • For Internet legal protection: Home & Everyday module. This covers you, for example, in disputes relating to goods bought online, intellectual property, and privacy violations. It also covers disputes with your landlord, mobile provider, shops, and more besides.
  • What’s the difference between legal advice and legal protection insurance?

    Legal advice is all about answering your questions on legal issues. We look at your case with you, make recommendations for what to do next, and clarify anything you’re unsure about.

    With legal protection insurance, in addition to providing legal advice, we actively support you in the event of a legal dispute by drafting documents, taking legal action, and covering lawyer’s fees and court costs.

  • Would a legal case that’s already ongoing be covered if I take out new legal protection insurance today?

    No, ongoing cases cannot be insured. Legal protection insurance is taken out as a preventive measure. A legal case is covered if the triggering event and need for legal protection occur – and the case is reported – during the insurance term.

  • What can I do if I need help with an ongoing legal case but don’t have legal protection insurance?

    Book a one-time consultation by phone for CHF 69 on myright.ch. Our legal experts will be happy to advise you on your next steps.

     

  • Is there a waiting or qualifying period?

    No, we don’t impose a waiting period. With our legal protection insurance, you’re covered from day one.

  • Would a legal case that’s already ongoing be covered if I take out new legal protection insurance today?

    No, ongoing cases cannot be insured. Legal protection insurance is taken out as a preventive measure. A legal case is covered if the triggering event and need for legal protection occur – and the case is reported – during the insurance term.
