An injury at work can be a life-changing event and all too often can have serious financial consequences. While financial compensation can never put right the effects of an injury at work it can assist in helping you adjust to your new situation. As a UNISON member you are entitled to free legal advice and representation if you are injured at work. This month alone Thompsons Solicitors, acting on behalf of UNISON members, won £2.2 million in compensation for members across the UK injured at work; in the Eastern region the amount was £74,000.
