We are proud to support union members by helping members claim for personal injury.

Most crucially, we understand the importance and the value of being a trade union member, and believe you deserve the best service possible on the best possible terms.

We are here to provide you with just that and support you every step of the way.

One last thing, it’s important to note that you should not be put off from claiming if you are no longer employed at the place where the accident occurred. You have 3 years in which to start legal proceedings.

What does our experience consist of?

Previously our solicitors have:

  • represented trade union members who have had accidents at work
  • litigated difficult cases
  • visited workplaces to investigate the case
  • attended coroner’s inquests
  • represented client’s interests at HSE prosecutions
  • provided rehabilitation for clients to rebuild their lives

Providing a close but professional service to our clients is just one of the things we pride ourselves on. When we speak to our clients and ask them what they appreciate most about our service, we get the same three answers:

  • the experience of the team
  • the dedication from the team
  • the close and personal service provided by the team

We believe that’s why we’re so successful at delivering what we do.

Why Spencers instead of your union?

We provide the same terms as your unio – we can match the financial terms offered by your union.

You're not just another case - you won't be passed around the merry-go-round of panel solicitors that can be appointed by your union. You will be represented by an experienced and committed executive because we know that dedication and personal contact matters.

Wealth of experience acting for trade union members: Our solicitors have acted for members who have suffered injuries such as amputations, burns, and brain injuries, serious psychological disorders and complex spinal injuries. Our serious injuries team have even been shortlisted for a national award.

It’s a service that you deserve.
