Traffic accidents and injuries

Members and their families have access to a FREE road traffic accident scheme. If a member or any member of their family is injured in an accident on the roads - whether as a driver, cyclist or pedestrian - and there is clear liability on the part of another road user, the NASUWT provides full legal assistance in making a claim for personal injury.

Call 0808 100 2221.

You will need to provide your name, contact details and your NASUWT membership number. If there is a problem with your membership or you do not know your membership number, contact the NASUWT Membership Team on 0121 457 6211.

NASUWT members who are three or more months in arrears with their subscriptions at the time of the accident are not entitled to legal assistance and cannot establish entitlement to assistance by subsequently paying arrears. Retired, former, career break and associate members who were in membership at the time of the accident and in the case of former members, providing they have not joined another Teacher Trade Union, are also entitled to assistance.
