Legal Defence Costs Insurance

As member of the PDA you will automatically be entitled to Legal Defence Costs insurance providing a limit of up to £500,000 worth of protection. The Insurance is arranged and administered for PDA members by The Pharmacy Insurance Agency.

Whats covered?

Any legal dispute can be difficult to resolve. Practical professional advice is essential – taken in good time it can often resolve a problem and prevent it from going any further. If indeed a problem needs to go to law, expensive legal costs will accrue not only if the case is lost but often in successful cases too. The knowledge that you enjoy up to £500,000 worth of legal protection which is supported by insurance* will provide you with considerable peace of mind.

The Legal Defence Costs insurance will provide you with:

  • The cost of legal representation
  • Relevant associated costs, e.g. lawyer’s sundry expenses, the cost of leading counsel, witness statements, medical expert reports, expenses etc.
