Law firm joins specialist group to support brain injured people and their families

National law firm Clarke Willmott LLP has become a member of the Brain Injury Group, a network of specialist lawyers providing support to brain injured people and their families.

Having gone through a robust application process and demonstrated particular expertise and experience in brain injury litigation, the firm will now help the organisation provide a complete package of support to those who need it.

Chris Thorne (pictured on main page), head of personal injury and medical negligence at Clarke Willmott, said: “We’re delighted to be working with the Brain Injury Group, which does fantastic work in helping families access legal, welfare and statutory funding help as well as many other services.

“It’s great to have this accreditation and to work with like-minded organisations across a range of professions who are experienced in dealing with acquired brain injuries to secure the best results for our clients.”

Sally Dunscombe, managing director of Brain Injury Group, said: “Chris Thorne and the team at Clarke Willmott have an outstanding reputation for assisting people who have sustained a brain injury and we’re delighted to have them as members of Brain Injury Group.”

Every year around one million people attend hospital suffering from some form of head trauma or brain injury. A significant number of people will suffer on-going symptoms after head injury, ranging from mild, short-term difficulty with memory, through to severe lifelong cognitive disability.

Understanding brain injury and its consequences is key to working with those that have suffered from one. Clarke Willmott’s team of brain injury solicitors specialise in dealing with the issues that arise from brain injury, such as bringing claims for brain injury compensation and advising on issues relating to capacity, financial affairs and care.

Clarke Willmott is a national law firm with offices in Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, London, Manchester, Southampton and Taunton.
