Legal Assistance (Personal Injury) Scheme

Any NIPSA member who sustains a personal injury as a result of an accident, whether or not this happens in the course of duty, contracts a disease at work or is injured as the result of negligence of a third party has access to the union’s Legal Assistance (Personal Injury) Scheme.
Access to this scheme is via the Executive Officer (Membership & Legal Services) at NIPSA Headquarters.

Legal Advice on Employment Matters

Employment-related matters, which cannot be resolved through the normal union negotiating machinery, may be referred to the union’s solicitors for advice. In all cases this must be carried out through the relevant NIPSA Headquarters Official who will decide if this is the appropriate course of action.

Fixed Price Conveyancing
