You will need specialist legal advice to make a personal injury claim, whether it is settled in or out of court:
- If you are a union member, your union should be your first point of call. Most unions have a great deal of expertise in settling personal injury cases, and the solicitors they use are recognised as experts in this field, which puts them in a good position to negotiate an out-of-court settlement with your employer (or their insurance company). There is more information in our Help from Unions section.
- If you are not a union member, then you should read our section on Personal Injury Claims carefully.
