LEI for Gun Owners

Legal Expense Insurance for Gun Owners is an example of a special risks product designed to meet the needs of a specific group of individuals.

LEI for Gun Owners

Such individuals have an exposure to legal costs in the event they face criminal charges or licensing issues. Few can afford a lawyer or know where to find one.

The policy provides them with free access to a lawyer to provide them with telephone legal advice and in the event it is required, a lawyer will be appointed to represent the insured.

This provides the insured with peace of mind and a valuable risk management tool.
