Union Membership - legal cover
Please read our discussion pages on paying legal costs in pursuing a medical negligence claim. One option you may have for protection against paying legal fees is by obtaining support from a Trade Union.
If you are a member of a Trade Union or professional association, they may be able to assist you in bringing a claim for clinical negligence. However more often than not such organisations merely provide general legal advice or occasionally rule out medical claims within their terms of business.
It is worth checking with your Union regarding possible funding for medical negligence actions. We will ask to see your Union documents and can check this situation for you should you decide to continue your case.
