Personal InjuryThe NASUWT uses expert solicitors in the pursuit of personal injury claims for compensation which arise out of work-related accidents, illness and assault.
In any personal injury compensation claim, you would need to prove that your injury, illness or disease was caused due to someone else's fault and the lawyer will help you with that. Accidents which occur abroad, for example whilst on school trips, are covered where the claim can be pursued in the UK courts. The Scheme does not cover medical negligence.
The NASUWT indemnifies the member for all the legal costs incurred, in circumstances where the claim is deemed to have reasonable prospects of success.
Casework reviews demonstrate that members consistently receive more compensation from their employers’ insurers where they use Union solicitors.
NASUWT members wishing to apply for legal assistance in relation to accidents at work, accidents during travel between home and work, work-related disease or disability or assault by pupils/parents/intruders should check the eligibility criteria which is set out in the Resources box on the right hand side of this page.
