Our injury team works closely with charities that can help our clients in their recovery and rehabilitation
- We have established close and productive links with respected charities whose work involves adults and children who have suffered major trauma, personal injury or medical negligence.
- Whenever it’s appropriate, we will put you directly in touch with the relevant charity, who can help provide extra information and support.
- Liaising with these charities also increases our understanding of these injuries and the recovery process, helping us further improve our service to you.
We work closely with charities whose aims include supporting people with the types of injuries often encountered in major trauma cases. This benefits our clients because we can put them directly in touch with the relevant charities, and by liaising with these charities, we increase our own knowledge of the services available to support our clients in their recovery.
