Association of Personal Injury Lawyers
A not-for-profit organisation representing injured people

Press room

APIL deals with the media on a daily basis, commenting on a variety of issues from legal reform to health and safety. We also run an annual Injury Prevention Day in August, which is designed to alert people to potential hazards and how to prevent them.

The press team aims to answer your query or provide you with a comment as quickly as possible. If we are unable to help, we will tell you, and try to point you in the right direction.

What we do for the media...

  • Set up interviews with our members, both nationally and locally
  • Issue press releases and statements
  • Provide general comment
  • Arrange comment pieces
  • Provide background briefings
