Seek compensation following
serious accidents and injuries
Third party to blame
How does it work?
The legal expenses cover is provided for all Deliveroo riders through automatic membership.
The scheme operators Serious Injury Law Limited (Digby Brown Solicitors for Scottish claims) will assess the reasonable prospects of success for your accident – if they accept and pursue your claim to a conclusion this will be at zero cost to you.
Accepted serious injury claims will be supported up to an indemnity limit of £150,000 – a considerable fund to finance legal action seeking compensation for you.
Serious Injury Law will only accept your case after careful assessment of the reasonable prospects of success.
If the legal action is successful they will recover their costs from the third party.
If they elect to pursue your case, but the legal action is subsequently unsuccessful, they will make no attempt to recover their costs.
If you’ve already appointed solicitors – potentially accepting significant costs such as success fees, or purchasing costly After The Event (ATE) cover – you may have prejudiced the case Serious Injury Law Limited could pursue, and therefore it is possible you will not be able to benefit from the legal expenses cover.
In the event you have already appointed another solicitor, it is advisable to speak to Serious Injury Law Limited to determine whether they can help under the terms of the Serious Injury Scheme. It is, for instance, good practice for a lawyer to determine whether you have alternative legal cover in place before asking you to purchase an After The Event insurance policy (sometimes several hundred pounds) which due to the cover the Serious Injury Scheme provides Deliveroo riders is not necessary.
It depends on individual circumstances but broadly speaking the free legal cover removes the potential for any of the following costs:
- Success fees
- Engagement fees
- After the Event (ATE) insurance premiums
