Every year, Unite Legal Services recovers millions of pounds in compensation for Unite members and their families. But our legal service is about more than just securing compensation. We work closely with medical and rehabilitation experts, partner organisations and charities to ensure our members access the best care to help aid their recovery from accidents, injuries and illnesses.
