We can manage any type of personal injury claim, and cover both motor and non-motor claims. We offer delegated authority schemes to firms that meet our criteria for performance and case volumes and even provide a specialist offering for more niche areas of law for example abuse, brain injury and animal acts.
Civil / Commercial litigation claims are individually assessed for ‘after the event’ (ATE) insurance. We realise that with these cases it’s often preferable to take a case-by-case approach and that you often require bespoke cover for your clients.

A market leader in legal expenses

Access to justice
I wouldn’t have been able to afford the legal costs if I hadn’t had this cover from DAS. It’s a brilliant service, and it’s a great safety net to have.
