What ATE insurance can anticipate and deliver…
“The best defense is a good offense.” It’s a familiar adage that sports coaches, CEOs and military leaders alike often use to inspire people. It’s also a strategy that a chess player may use to outwit their opponent.
In the legal profession, taking a 360-degree perspective on behalf of your clients’ is always important. This is precisely why After The Event (ATE) insurance insurance is becoming popular. Here’s what it is designed to deliver:
“ATE insurance is a Legal Expense Insurance policy that fully protects your client against their opponent’s adverse costs and their own disbursements, should the case fail or be abandoned.
ATE also assists your law firm by providing cost certainty for your client when raising a case and your firm’s associated investment in investigatory disbursements. Thus ATE empowers you to accept more clients, knowing that their disbursements are secured.”1
Specialize in personal injury claims? Here’s how ATE insurance can help
Clients who pursue their personal injury claim in the Canadian court system may have serious concerns about what may happen in the event of a loss. This is why a ATE Insurance policy is specifically designed to protect clients who make personal injury compensation claims.2
Here’s how ATE works…
Even with a 360-degree view, outcomes are not guaranteed. This is why ATE insurance provides protection against liability in the event that an insured client’s case doesn’t have a successful outcome in court.
If a personal injury claim is lost, a ATE insurance policy will pay up to a maximum of $100,000 for the combined amounts of:
- Opponent’s legal costs and expenses your client is required to pay,
- Your client’s disbursements incurred in pursuing the claim,
- The cost of your client’s insurance premium.”3
