The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers represents personal injury solicitors
The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) was established in 1990 by a group of personal injury solicitors working on behalf of personal injury sufferers nationwide and it now has over 5,000 members.
APIL is an independent, not-for-profit organisation which provides accreditation to solicitors specialising in personal injury law. This accreditation shows that an APIL solicitor has achieved a specific standard.
APIL campaigns for better laws to help people who are injured or who have become ill through no fault of their own.
Their main objective is for personal injury solicitors, including those who work on a no win no fee basis, to fight for justice for people injured through negligence of any kind. This objective remains a priority, and through its campaigning work the Association is now recognised within Government and the media.
APIL-accredited personal injury solicitors are dedicated to trying to prevent avoidable personal injuries by raising health and safety awareness.
APIL campaigns target MPs, civil servants, local officials, the press and the general public to promote a “safety culture” throughout the UK.
The organisation’s objectives are to promote full and just compensation for all types of personal injury, to promote and develop expertise in personal injury law, to promote wider redress for personal injuries in the legal system, to campaign for personal injury law improvements and to promote a communication network for members.
Representing the membership of personal injury solicitors is an 18-strong executive committee including a president, vice-president, secretary and treasurer. APIL’s head office, run by a staff of 30, is based in Nottingham.
Amongst the campaigning action of the personal injury solicitors that make up APIl has been the Compensation Bill, the NHS Redress Bill, the pre-legislative scrutiny stage of the Draft Legal Services Bill and the Draft Coroner Reform Bill.
Personal injury compensation claims
Despite the fact that health and safety measures to improve workplace conditions and protect the UK population are being enforced all the time, there are still not enough inspections and visits to check that legislation is being properly implemented.
Workers’ rights continue to be affected and their health and safety put at risk. Younger workers in particular are more susceptible to bad workplace conditions if they are inexperienced and insufficiently trained.
While organisations like APIL fight to defend worker rights, employers are still not taking enough action to protect their employees.
