Where can I get legal advice?

If you are a union member, your union should be your first port 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's more information in the Help from Unions section.

If you are not a union member, then you should read the workSMART pages on Personal Injury Claims carefully.

Make sure to get individual advice on your case from your union, a source on our free help page or an independent financial advisor before taking any action.
