Personal injury compensation wins mount

The UNISON public services union won an “incredible” £1.7 million in settlements in almost 200 personal injury cases in August 2021 alone, it announced. Its personal injury legal assistance scheme is described as completely free to use, win or lose, with no deductions from any compensation obtained.

It enables the union to secure justice for members who are injured at work and in calling employers to account, “this also means we make our workplaces safer for others too”, it said.
