Legal Expenses Insurance
Many insurance companies will try to include legal expenses insurance for personal injury claims with your insurance policy, often at an additional cost.
As a UNISON member you get free legal assistance when you sustain a personal injury through UNISON's legal assistance scheme. This is provided by UNISON's lawyers Thompsons Solicitors.
UNISON endorsed insurers, UIA and LV Frizzell, who do not include legal expenses insurance to cover these circumstances in the policies offered to UNISON members and refer all such claims to Thompsons Solicitors.
For information about the UNISON legal assistance available from Thompsons please contact UNISONdirect tel 0845 355 0845.
