Continued legal support for brain injured children

The Child Brain Injury Trust was established in 1991 and is now the UK’s leading voluntary sector organisation, providing non-medical services to the families of children with acquired brain injuries.
According to the Trust, every 30 minutes, a child or young person will acquire a brain injury as a result of an accident, an illness such as meningitis or encephalitis, a poisoning, a stroke or a brain tumour.
Brain injuries have a devastating effect for both the child sufering the injury and their entire family.
John McQuater, head of litigation at Atherton Godfrey, said: “You cannot underestimate the difficulty families face when coping with a brain injury. They not only have to come to terms with the injury itself, but even more so, with the impact of the injury, which unfortunatly is for life.
“In these difficult circumstances, it is essential that the families are able to trust that their solicitor has the experitse and skill to be able to provide the complex legal support that will be required.”
The legal fims accredited by the Trust have been individually vetted by a panel of legal professionals and are seen as the UK’s leading clinical negligence and personal injury firms.
