I have spoken with some officers recently who are unaware that the Police Federation provides a free legal service should they be injured on or off duty. Claimline has been running for many years now and have been very successful in representing our members.
There is no risk of an ambulance chasing culture where we pursue frivolous claims, I personally work closely with the solicitors firms we use to make sure they act with integrity and proportionality. This is not about chasing imaginary claims, this is about making sure our members get all the support and help they are entitled to.
It should be noted that the funding rules have now changed so the vast majority of law firms will ask the client for a percentage of the costs out of the compensation obtained. The Federation scheme still allows officers and family members if they bring a claim, to keep 100% of their damages.
It is important our members are aware of this service so please find attached the details you require should you require them. If you have any questions please contact the Federation office.
PF Claimline's personal injury lawyers have recovered over £29 million in damages for police officers and their families in the last three years.
If you are injured on or off duty, you can start your claim for personal injury through PF Claimline. Your family is also covered if they suffer an injury, even if it's in a separate incident.
PF Claimline is one of the benefits of being a Police Federation member. Whether you win or lose your claim you will not be charged and you keep 100% of any compensation won.
PF Claimline's personal injury lawyers are specialists in all types of accident, and police incidents in particular including:
