The spinal cord is part of the nervous system.   When it is damaged, sensory, motor and autonomic function below the level where the injury has taken place can be affected.  In the most extreme cases this results in Tetraplegia.  In less severe injuries there can be a loss of sensation to a limb or extremity.

At MW we know a spinal cord injury can bring major changes to the life of those injured and that of their family and friends. Rehabilitation is crucial to making the best possible recovery and the MW team will work with you and those working for you to help achieve this.  We will arrange a specialist case manager to help plan and implement a rehabilitation package which can incorporate your health, psychological, educational or occupational needs.   We will work with medical, clinical and other experts to value your past and most importantly, future needs, such as personal and medical care, income, specialist equipment, accommodation and transport.

Where possible we will secure interim payments to assist with day to day and rehabilitation needs throughout the course of the claim.

The sudden death of a loved one is devastating, especially when unexpected and as a result of an accident.

In the UK, 1,713 people were killed or seriously injured on our roads in 2013 (Department of Transport), and  142 deaths occurred whilst people were at work (HSE 2014/2015).

At MW the experienced team will explain how a claim can be made, by whom, what for and steer bereaved families through the many resulting consequences that follow. The team will assist by explaining the involvement of the Coroners’ Court if there is an Inquest or the Criminal Court when a prosecution is being brought.  Our Private Client team can deal with the requests made in a Will or obtain a Grant of Representation when there is no Will.

We can also direct you to organisations who are there to help with your bereavement or to support campaigns to avoid fatal accidents; such as the Road Safety Charity BRAKE, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and Hazards Campaign and are proud supporters of Families Against Corporate Killers (FACK).

The law surrounding fatal accidents is not straightforward and just as a loved one was an individual, different outcomes will be achieved depending on the circumstances of the incident giving rise to the death and the individual’s family and financial circumstances.  The MW team have particular expertise in this area, with Joanna Bailey lecturing on the subject to the Police, Health Professionals and charities.
