The Spinal Injuries Association has named Hugh James as one of two ‘trusted legal partners’ in the West Midlands – in an announcement that cements an already strong relationship between the two organisations.
Hugh James has a strong track record in working with people who have sustained life-changing injuries through road crashes, accidents at work, clinical negligence and other trauma. Its team of specialist lawyers help guide individuals through a maze of decisions, around rehabilitation, care packages, specialist equipment, accommodation and security for the future– through their legal services, pro-bono support and access to an emergency fund.
Over the years, the firm has worked closely with the Spinal Injuries Association. It has been a corporate member and listed in its Solicitors directory for a long time and has supported many of its various initiatives and fundraising events on a local and national level.
This regional partnership will strengthen the support Hugh James can provide to people with spinal cord injuries in the West Midlands and surrounding Welsh borders, including Oswestry, where the Midlands Centre for Spinal Injuries is situated.
Hugh James’ Divisional Head of Individual Client Services, Stephen Webber, said:
“We’re excited and extremely proud to be working with the Spinal Injuries Association in this strategic partnership and look forward to building on the strong foundations we’ve already built up with the charity over the years. We share a passion and commitment to helping make a real a difference to the lives of people affected by spinal cord injury – and their families – and in ensuring their needs are placed at the heart of every decision.”
Spinal Injuries Association Partnerships Manager, Chris Massarella added:
“I’ve been lucky enough to work with the Hugh James team through various fundraising endeavours and events over the years, and it has always been clear how passionate they are as a firm – and as individuals – in supporting the entire spinal cord injury community. We’re delighted to announce them as one of our partners in the West Midlands, and they will be instrumental in helping SIA provide a wealth of specialist, expert legal advice to our members. We look forward to working with them to help extend our network of support to every spinal cord injured person who needs it”.
