NIPSA and MTB solicitors have won just over £280,000 in compensation for members in relation to personal injury cases between January and April 2020.
The personal injury cases included road traffic accidents and accidents within the workplace as well as non-work related accidents.
Mr Viv Harty from McCartan, Turkington, Breen solicitors states:
‘This figure represents compensation won for NIPSA members who were fortunate that they were able to avail of the Legal Assistance (Personal Injury) Scheme. The NIPSA scheme is better in my view than the schemes offered by other unions and legal expenses insurers. It is easy to access and contact is made almost immediately with an experienced PI Solicitor. The scheme is one of only many of the benefits enjoyed by NIPSA Members.’
