Our Trusted Legal Partners

Every injured person should get the best possible legal advice if they need it after their injury. That process can be lengthy and complicated, but by introducing you to our legal partners, we can make that process is as easy as possible for you and your family.

Our legal partners in the South West are Royds Withy King and Trethowans.  They can help you get the best possible outcome if you have a legal claim as a result of your injury. We have selected them because of their experience in handling claims and understanding of spinal cord injury.

As well as supporting you with a catastrophic injury or clinical negligence claim, Royds Withy King and Trethowans can also support you with other legal issues such as changing a will or granting power of attorney
