After my accident, I contacted Unite Legal Services. I got an interim payment which then allowed me to look for a bungalow. I just like the bungalow. I like getting on with things. I like living and being alive.

A serious injury can have a devastating effect on the injured person’s life and their family. At Unite Legal Services, we can help you and your family secure compensation and provide access to the best support and medical treatment you need following a serious injury.

Our serious injury lawyers can provide immediate help and advice on how to make a serious injury claim. They will work with you to quickly assess your current care needs and, where suitable, obtain an interim or immediate payment alongside pursuing a compensation claim for your longer-term needs. Interim payments can help ease the financial strain during treatment if you are unable to work, as well as pay for specialist care or adaptations you may need to your home or current mode of transport.

We know that early access to rehabilitation is a key part of the recovery process following a serious injury. We have close working links to a network of rehabilitation experts including physiotherapists, case managers, psychologists, support workers and occupational therapists, who can provide one-to-one support to help you, or a non-working family member, to regain independence.

Our serious injury solicitors are active members of Headway, UK Acquired Brain Injury Forum (UKABIF) and the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA), which sees them campaign alongside the charities and volunteer their time and expertise in support of the groups.

The Unite the Union Benevolent Fund provides assistance to members and their dependants. For more information about the union’s Benevolent Fund, or to apply, click here.

Making a serious injury claim

You can make a serious injury claim for compensation to cover the cost of medical treatment, rehabilitation and changes in lifestyle after your injury, in addition to the financial impact the injury has had on you and your family. You can also claim for loss of earnings and any other injury-related expenses.

Our experience in handling serious injury claims has helped Unite members and their families to secure millions of pounds in compensation and provide access to vital rehabilitation services without paying a penny. Even if the evidence collected shows you were partly to blame for your accident, you may still have a valid case if we can prove someone else was also at fault.

Unlike high street firms or private solicitors, we guarantee you will receive 100% of your compensation and not pay a penny in legal fees.
