You will benefit from QOCS protection providing the third party are prepared to accept that they are responsible for your injury. However, even if they do accept they are responsible, they may not accept that your injuries are as severe as you say they are. If they don’t they will not settle the case and so we will need to go trial to prove your claim. If this happens the judge will need to make a decision and you could lose your case. You may lose the QOCS protection meaning that you will need to pay for the other sides costs.
QOCS protection doesn’t apply if there is dispute over the costs of repairs to your vehicle or credit car hire, so should we need to go to court to recover the costs, should we lose, the ATE policy will cover the costs of the other side.
