We only ever advise those who have been injured and never those responsible for causing injuries - or their insurers.
We provide a range of legal guides and resources. While no substitute for advice from our experts, these guides will help you to understand your rights and navigate a claim, if you choose to progress with one.
Trade union members can find additional guidance relating to employment issues on our dedicated trade union website.
