Adequate Insurance for lawyers
Wednesday, 27th March 2019
My background is that I studied at BPP Holborn for the LPC then trained and qualified with Eversheds Sutherland as a real estate solicitor. I left in 2009 to have babies and was just thinking of returning when I suffered a massive brain haemorrhage in 2013. I am only now recovered enough to think about anything else other than my own health.
I really think young lawyers should be warned to put their finances in order early on - being disabled is ridiculously hard and expensive. What happened to me should be widely known and should act as a cautionary example. I feel I have a responsibility to encourage people to think about their own insurance and I would really urge your Inn to educate it's lawyers about the benefits.
I was really lucky I had my own critical illness cover which luckily paid out but I understand not everyone. I understand adequate insurance is even more important when you are self-employed (we don't know what is round the corner- I certainly didn't.)
The importance of having proper insurance can't be overstated. For me, having personal insurance has meant I have a lovely house which doesn’t resemble hospital and all the speech therapy and physio I need.
I have a little blog ( to keep me busy as I can't work) I hope it might be of interest:
