FORTUNA TOP LEGAL PROTECTION INSURANCE – protects you in any situation

With FORTUNA Top legal protection insurance, you have comprehensive legal insurance coverage worldwide. You can choose for which areas you’d like to take out insurance coverage: personal legal protection insurance, motorists’ legal protection insurance or a combination of the two.

 

PERSONAL LEGAL PROTECTION INSURANCE

With FORTUNA Top personal legal protection insurance, you enjoy comprehensive protection against everyday financial and legal risks.

 

Example:

Mr Smith worked as a driver for a transport company. After a disagreement with his line manager, he was dismissed without notice. Thanks to Fortuna's intervention, Mr Smith's employer eventually paid him his salary and compensation in the amount of CHF 5,000 and gave him a good reference.

 

Motorists' legal protection insurance

FORTUNA Top motorists' legal protection insurance ensures you have legal cover with you, no matter where you're driving.

 

Example:

Ms Miller is caught speeding. She faces a hefty fine and the suspension of her driver's licence. Fortuna checks whether the penalty is justified and manages to prevent her licence from being suspended.

 

 

COMBINED LEGAL PROTECTION INSURANCE

With a combination of personal legal protection insurance and motorists' legal protection insurance, you are always on the safe side, no matter where you are. You benefit from a combination discount of CHF 20 per year.
