How Scorpion Lawyers Can Help You
21st February 2018
Getting a lawyer to defend you can be an expensive business. Even if the matter never sees the inside of a court, it could cost your thousands of Rand in consultation fees. That’s where Scorpion Lawyers come in.
It can be very difficult to come up with that sort of money on short notice. And, considering that legal matters often crop up unexpectedly, you might need assistance at the worst possible time financially.
Scorpion Legal Protection is a company that provides a legal insurance. Think of it like the insurance on your car – you pay a monthly premium and are covered if there you need assistance with a legal matter.
Maybe you got unfairly dismissed or locked up. Or maybe a creditor is hounding you. Wouldn’t it be nice to know that you had a lawyer on your side?
With more than twenty years of experience, Scorpion can help you with most legal matters and also enforcing your rights.
In addition, the company does also offer comprehensive and affordable funeral cover for you and your family.
What Scorpion Lawyers Do
It is simple – you have access to a 24/7 legal assistance line that you can phone whenever you need to. Should your matter be more serious and require a face to face consultation with an attorney, they can assist as well.
If the matter needs to go to court, or if some other form of professional legal representation is required, they will put you in touch with an independent attorney in your area so that you get the best representation possible.
The funeral policy offers you a way to provide your family with the good quality funeral service that they deserve. You get the full-service package – a reasonable pay out to settle funeral expenses and legal advice about matters to do with dealing with the estate.
How Much Will Scorpion Lawyers Cost?
The policies are really affordable and start at R45 per month, depending on what cover option you select. The most expensive cover comes in at R130 per month. You get between R55 000 and R150 000 cover per annum.
There are two basic options that cost R45 per month and in these cases, you have to choose between labour cover and civil cover. There is no criminal cover under either of these two policies.
Their more comprehensive cover starts at R87 per month.
Are There Exclusions?
Pre-existing matters are not covered under the policy, so you cannot get face to face legal representation for them. You can, however, ask for telephonic advice for them.
Frivolous law suits are not covered. So, you cannot, for example, sue someone for defamation or something similar. What you can do, however, is to call into the legal advice line and ask for advice on how to proceed on your own.
There are limits to the cover in each separate section, so you are advised to talk to check on these before taking out the cover.
All in all, Scorpion provides legal cover that is relatively inexpensive. Hopefully, you will never need to use it but, if you do, it is there for you.
