Leading Law Firms Join The Major Trauma Group
Three leading law firms, Burnetts Solicitors, Lime Solicitors, and Horwich Cohen Coghlan have teamed up with Major Trauma Group to provide support to survivors of major trauma injury.
The Major Trauma Group was founded in Spring 2020, as a non-profit Community Interest Company. The Group was established by four of the UK’s leading law firms and the Brain Injury Group in collaboration with medical clinicians. Since, the Group has grown to encompass specialist Independent Financial Advisory services.
The serious injury team at Burnetts Solicitors bring a wide range of expertise to the Group and have been supporting clients across the North East of England and Cumbria over the past months. The team also provides access to wider personal, business and public sector legal knowledge and services. Lime Solicitors offers specialist legal services that support people across the Midlands and the South East of England who have suffered a personal injury. Based in London, Manchester, and Birmingham, Horwich Cohen Coghlan is a serious injury law firm specialising in representing people who have suffered major trauma injuries.
In the United Kingdom, major trauma injuries are currently the main cause of death for people under the age of 45. Patients who survive typically require ongoing specialist rehabilitation services and financial support after being discharged. However, patients are often unsure of how to access the support they require. The Major Trauma Group seeks to provide information and support for individuals, directing them to the appropriate financial, legal, and mental health services as necessary. Throughout the pandemic, there has been an increased strain on NHS resources. The Major Trauma Group is calling on other community groups, charities, and insurers to come together to provide the support and guidance that major trauma victims critically need.
Chair of the Major Trauma Group, Trevor Sterling, has said: “This is an exceptionally exciting time for the Group, and we are delighted to work in collaboration with experts that share in our vision of working towards greater provision of holistic rehabilitation for major trauma survivors.
“These three firms, alongside our existing specialist Members, can help make real changes to the lives of major trauma survivors and their families. We look forward to making progress together.”
