The move is part of a new national Legal Support Service being launched by the charity, where ACS will provide legal services and support to families facing the many varied challenges when a child suffers a brain injury.
The service will start in March 2015 as a national pilot project, giving long term support and access to justice across a wide range of legal services, whether the child has a legal case or not.
Rankeshwar Batta, partner and head of ACS’s personal injury department, said: “We are very proud to be partnering the Child Brain Injury Trust and to support the needs of children and their families affected by serious brain injury.
“We have been working with the charity for a long time, and have a very common goal to support the rehabilitation of life changing catastrophic injuries.”
ACS has worked with the Trust for 8 years, providing a central location of support with conferences, training and seminars. Rachel Ritter, head of fundraising at the Child Brain Injury Trust, added: “We selected ACS for this pilot project based on their long term and unconditional support of the charity, and for their expertise as specialist solicitors in brain injury. We are delighted they have invested in this project, which is so essential for families in crisis.”
ACS’s 14-strong personal injury team is highly respected for its expertise in catastrophic injury. Both the firm’s PI partners are accredited to The Law Society Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence Panels, and AvMA (Action Against Medical Accidents) Panel for Clinical Negligence.
