Markel Insurance

Legal expenses insurance for haulage industry

As a leading insurer for the UK’s haulage industry, Markel has developed a specialist legal expenses policy tailored to the needs of the sector.

The haulage industry can be subject to a number of legal exposures including employment issues, tax disputes, personal injury and criminal prosecution. Unique to this sector, however, is the power of the Traffic Commissioner’s office to revoke or alter operating licenses, or disqualify directors.

Markel’s specialist legal expenses insurance for the haulage sector protects against standard industry risks and provides specific cover for statutory license disputes. Our integrated enhanced transport operator’s licence cover offers representation at a public enquiry before the Traffic Commissioner, appeal of the Traffic Commissioner’s decision, and legal advice about vehicle and operating compliance.

More than just insurance cover

With a determination to support our client’s growth ambitions, complimentary employment, health & safety and commercial legal advice from our experienced lawyers is just a phone call away.

Guidance from our knowledgeable tax advisers is also available, as is access to Markel Law Hub, a premier online employment, health & safety and business law information portal created by our specialist solicitors. Up-to-date content includes precedent legal documents, fact sheets and legal newsletters.
