McHale Muldoon is the leading law firm in Ireland for handling Payment Protection Insurance (PPI) claims.
PPI has been mis-sold on a number of financial loans and contracts with banks including credit cards, car finance and mortgages.
The protective insurance can be a valuable product when the appropriate type is sold to a consumer who will benefit from it.
However, all too often banks, brokers and other middlemen have failed to sell PPI in the correct manner, often selling it to customers who couldn’t benefit from it or didn’t know it was included. This has resulted in a widespread mis-selling scandal where many lenders and brokers have made record payments of compensation.
The Central Bank has uncovered widespread mis-selling in relation to PPI and investigation is ongoing.
For many people, they do not even realise that they have been mis-sold PPI until they seek advice. This is often because:
- They did not realise that they had been sold PPI.
- The PPI was not explained to them and so they were not aware that the PPI was not required and/or was of no use to them.
Whereas some people were mis-sold for reasons such as:
- They were told that they had to have the PPI.
- They were not told that the PPI only provided cover the first part of a loan.
- They were not told that the PPI would only cover them in certain circumstances.
- The PPI was recommended to them when it was not appropriate to do so.
