How to make your insurance company pay for our fees?
If you are the holder of a home, vehicle or accidente insurance policy, you may well be entitled to a legal fees cover. This coverage allows you to hire an independent lawyer of your choice, i.e. not selected by the insurance company. In addition, any legal fees must be paid by the insurance company. This right to counsel of your own choice is laid down by Article 76 of the Spanish Insurance Contracts Act.
If you decide to hire us and you prefer that all costs are borne by your insurance company, it is important to notify such decision in due course. Contact us and we will take care of everything.
