Corporate Supporters

We are grateful to have Cerebra financially supported by several solicitors, all of whom specialise in accident or clinical negligence cases relating to brain conditions.

Clearly we would not want anyone to be in a position where accident or clinical negligence has led to injury relating to brain conditions. If you are in this position, we want you to have the best advice from solicitors who are knowledgeable and experienced in this field.

We suggest you contact a number of experienced solicitors for an initial discussion before selecting a firm.  Experience and a good track record are very important, as is finding someone you can trust, and can develop a good working relationship with. Accident or clinical negligence claims are hard emotionally, and can take many years.  The most local firm may not always be the best option – clinical negligence is complex and there are relatively few specialists with good experience of this field.

If you would like further information, please contact one or more of the following legal providers by clicking on the links below.

Boyes Turner helps families with disabled children. We pride ourselves on achieving the best possible results for all our clients. Our specialist Community Care solicitor, Jemma Garside, has extensive experience assisting families dealing with issues related to their care needs. She works to help families obtain payments towards state funded social care. With schools often struggling to provide the facilities and additional help that disabled children need, education can be a major issue. Our Specialist Education team helps parents work constructively with local authorities, so that their child has the support they need and a place at the school they want. Where disability has been caused by a medical mistake or accident, we can help provide financial security by securing compensation.
