Legal expenses provider continues growth in Irish market

Arc Legal Assistance has increased its presence in the Irish market by agreeing a new motor insurance deal with Axa Insurance Ireland (AXA).

Arc Legal’s motor legal expenses cover is provided as part of the insurer’s ‘AXA Motor Extra Benefits’ package, an optional extension for all Axa motor insurance policyholders.

Axa customers will have access to legal cover for personal injury and uninsured loss recovery claims, where they cannot be settled through the, previously known as the Personal Injury Assessment Board, an independent government body set up to assess personal injury compensation figures. Cover is also provided for the legal expenses associated with defending motor prosecutions.

Paul Nolan, underwriting manager, Axa Insurance Ireland, said: “At Axa, we pride ourselves on offering a comprehensive benefits package that provides the extensive support that our customers need. Arc’s expertise in supplying tailored cover and advice ensures our customers receive the highest quality protection and service.”

Richard Finan, director of Arc Legal, said: “The Irish market has responded positively to our business model since our launch there in 2007. This deal, which continues our growth in Ireland, is a reflection of the fact that our model is making a real difference to the market and is truly working.”
