LV= transcript for motor legal expenses video guide

Hello, I'm Victoria. At LV= we offer Motor Legal Expenses (or MLE) as an optional extra. But what are Motor Legal Expenses?

MLE is sometimes also known as MLA or Motor Legal Assistance. It's there if you have an accident where another driver is to blame.

You'll get help to claim for injuries or costs not covered by your car insurance.

LV= offers up to £100,000 in cover for legal expenses when you need it most.

This cover is there to help you in the most difficult of situations such as recovering uninsured losses like compensation for personal injury or compensation for loss of earnings.

It can also be used in order to defend a motoring prosecution that has arisen from an accident while you were using your car.

In short, MLE is there to help when you need it most and get you back on track as soon as possible.

To include MLE in your cover, please give us a call. We are always happy to help.

We love saving you money on other insurance too...
