Legal services for Usdaw members and their families

Usdaw Legal Services

The team at Allan McDougall Solicitors has been working for Usdaw members and their families throughout Scotland for many years.

How we help Usdaw members

As panel solicitors for Usdaw, we act for Usdaw members free of charge when you need legal advice for:

Personal injury compensation claims

  • Any accident, anywhere in the UK, including accidents at work and outside of work.
  • Accidents and injuries while outside the UK on a package holiday.
  • Road traffic and cycling accidents.
  • Work-related conditions and occupational diseasesĀ (including repetitive strain injuries, deafness, asbestos-related illnesses, vibration white finger, occupational asthma and dermatitis).
  • Slips, trips and falls.
  • Injuries caused by violent crime or armed robbery (Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority claims).
  • Public liability and occupiers’ liability claims.

Family members living with an Usdaw member are covered for any non-work related accidents anywhere, anytime in the UK and also if they are injured while outside the UK on a package holiday.

As an Usdaw member, you and your family members will not be charged a success fee. This means that you will receive 100% of any compensation. Note that most other law firms that are not panel solicitors for Usdaw will retain a significant percentage (as high as 30%) of your settlement.

Family matters

We also provide our family law services at a reduced rate for members. These include:

  • Separation and divorce.
  • Dissolution of Civil Partnerships.
  • Cohabitation.
  • Pre and post-nuptial agreements.
  • Parental rights and responsibilities, residence and contact.
  • Adoption.

Other legal services

We can also help you with other legal services through our sister brand McDougall McQueen, including:

  • Drafting a will for you and your partner free of charge.
  • Providing conveyancing, probate and powers of attorney services at reduced rates.

What our clients say

  • Eilidh Campbell, thank you. The way you presented my defence in court was excellent and it was one of the best representations I have had since I had my first hearing in the family courts. You understood my position fully and raised all the issues. I am very grateful to you for your hard work. I feel very fortunate to have such a safe pair of hands representing me.
  • Although it was very painful at the time, the cheque for compensation as a result of my accident brought a smile to my face today. Many thanks to Jackie Raitt and your team for the advice, assistance and service provided.
  • Gordon Milligan and Julie Harris were clear and made it easy to understand the complexities of law and what to expect.
