Choosing Unite Legal Services for your work injury compensation claim
At Unite Legal Services, we have dedicated solicitors who are expertly trained to handle accident at work claims as well as claims for accidents that happen outside of the workplace. They treat each case individually and will provide guidance and support throughout each stage of your claim, taking the time to explain what you can expect clearly and in detail.
We understand the emotional and financial pressure that individuals and families face after an accident at work. As costs build up, particularly if you are unable to work or require additional care as a result of your injury, getting back into a normal routine can be a daunting prospect.
By using high street firms or private solicitors to pursue an accident at work claim for compensation, you risk your claim being dealt with by a non-specialist and being hit with hidden costs and fees – often taken directly from the damages they secure for you. However, as a Unite member using Unite Legal Services, you will receive 100% of your compensation. There are no fees, no deductions and no compromises when it comes to your claim. You will get expert personal injury claim advice at absolutely no cost.
Making an accident at work compensation claim
Unite Legal Services can help you to secure damages for pain and suffering and the inability to do things now that you could do before you suffered an injury – such as not being able to work, play sport, care for yourself or drive to the shop. You are also entitled to recover loss of earnings and expenditure you incur as a result of your injury or rehabilitation needs.
If you have suffered an accident at or away from work, you should seek legal advice as soon as possible. The sooner you get in touch with Unite Legal Services, the easier it is to gather strong evidence to support your claim.
If you suffered a workplace injury, we understand that you may feel reluctant to make a claim. Remember, there are strict health and safety regulations that must be adhered to by employers and by claiming, you can make your employer investigate what has happened and potentially prevent others from being injured in the same way in the future.
Unite Legal Services will fight hard to get you the maximum compensation in the minimum time, and ensure that you achieve the best possible outcome
