John F's story

I would recommend using the service to other Unite members.

Unite member, John, suffered an accident at work while he was employed as an operative in the food, drink and tobacco sector. 

On the day of the accident, he was unloading barrels from racks at a height with a colleague, when a barrel rolled out beneath the safety bar and struck John on the head. 

As a result of the accident, he sustained a significant head injury, dental injuries, mild hearing loss and further soft tissue injuries to his neck and back. His injuries were so severe that he needed six months off work to recover. 

Despite making a good recovery, John still lives with some side effects of the accident. 

As a member of Unite, he had access to a specialist personal injury solicitor through Unite Legal Services to discuss his case. 

The solicitor negotiated an admission of liability from John’s employer and secured a six-figure compensation sum for him. 

John said:

“Unite Legal Services provided me with really good service and support.”
