Services for Members - Personal Injury Claims

Unite recommends that you pursue any personal injury claim you may have through the Union's solicitors. This is the only way you will be guaranteed to keep 100% of your compensation


An injury or illness can have a devastating impact, many years after they occur.  Difficulties working, expensive treatments, travel costs, not to mention the emotional price you pay and your family are forced to endure. 


Unite members won't be left counting the costs when it isn’t their fault.  Unite have been winning compensation for victims of accidents, injury and disease since 1852.

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of earnings
  • Property and clothes damage
  • Loss of overtime, bonus pay or shift allowance
  • Travel costs
  • Physiotherapy and similar treatment
  • Care provided by your family
  • Prescription cost


Our lawyers will also do everything that they can to assist getting you back on your feet and moving forward with your life from arranging physiotherapy and similar rehabilitative care to car hire or other means of travel in appropriate cases.

Before Posting

We welcome debate and discussion on our website, but we also want an open, respectful, inclusive space in which forms of abuse or personal attack will not be tolerated. Comments will be moderated and will be removed if they are found to be unduly offensive. You should also be very careful in posting information about your employer. Employers do visit the website and if you think a comment could get you into trouble for releasing confidential or sensitive information, or for bringing the employer into disrepute, please do not post it. It remains your individual responsibility to ensure that what you post is appropriate. Please therefore just give a moment's thought to what you are saying. The types of comments that are likely to be moderated are:

  • Personal abuse or attacks on an individual.
  • Information which breaches another person's right to confidentiality.
  • The use of offensive language, including swear words, or language which is racist, sexist, or otherwise breaches equalities standards.
  • Anything that might place the Branch or the wider union in legal jeopardy.
