Personal injury claims

Every year thousands of injuries are sustained in the workplace. The union's specialist personal injury lawyers can advise and represent you to recover compensation.

Claims covered include:

  • any work-related accident or disease at or away from work for members (including road traffic accidents to and from work and away from work, eg field trips) which was not your fault
  • any clinical negligence arising from medical treatment after a work-related accident or disease.

UCU's personal injury service is provided by union solicitors Thompsons and Slater & Gordon who deal with compensation claims under a collective conditional fee agreement.

Unlike many other high street claims firms, the UCU legal service guarantees that members get 100% of their compensation won and won't be charged a penny whether or not their claim is successful.

Please refer to the UCU legal support rules for further information, including time limits.
