Service contracts are relatively common in the auto industry. Dealerships will offer them as something extra to purchase. The concept of service contracts has gone beyond cars and trucks. It is possible to get a service contract for various appliances and even computer software. The question arises as to whether or not you need it. A group legal plan attorney can help you make the decision.

Trouble in the Details

Essentially, the document means you will receive service in the event there is a problem with the product. It ordinarily means a failure to function properly. The contract sounds like a good idea, but a person has to investigate the paperwork carefully. There may be provisions in which the service contract is put into use and other situations where it cannot. For example, a service contract for the car might not be active if there is a warranty already in place. It is also possible that the paperwork includes automatic renewal of service contracts.

Your bank account may get hit with a bill for an automatic renewal when you do not expect it. What may be in the details is sufficient reason to inspect the service contract carefully. Not too many people, however, fully understand the language of these papers. Pre-paid legal services benefits will provide an attorney to interpret the legal jargon. Reviewing contracts and other legal documents is a benefit option Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services has for an organization to consider.
