This service provides advice and representation for members and their families for all accidents outside the workplace, including road traffic accidents, and for non-work-related disease or illness, provided the eligibility for assistance criteria is met. (For more details about eligibility, see right/below.)

Accidents which occur abroad, for example, whilst on holiday, are covered if the claim can be pursued in the UK courts.

Please note that the Scheme does not cover medical negligence or non-work-related CICA claims or CICA claims for family members.

‘Family’ is defined as the NASUWT member and their spouse or partner together with their children and any adult financial dependant.

The Scheme gives access for members and their families to the UK’s most experienced personal injury law firm and guarantees:

  • no investigation costs;

  • no insurance premium payment;

  • no expenses to pay as the case progresses or on its conclusion - whatever the outcome.

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, please email the Membership Team.

More information about personal injury claims can be found on the Thompsons Solicitors website.
