As part of its work fighting for compensation for people who have suffered a head or brain injury, Freeclaim Solicitors has seen first-hand the fantastic support offered by the charity. Each year over 40,000 children in the UK are left with a brain injury as a result of an accident or illness. With more than 30 years’ experience of handling head injury claims, and with a strong focus on getting effective rehabilitation and support programmes in place for its clients, Freeclaim Solicitors was pleased to donate the funds to the charity. It is a statistical fact that those who gain access to recovery and support services quickly after an accident stand a much greater chance of making a good recovery and therefore Freeclaim Solicitors is proud to support charities such as The Children’s Trust.
The funds will be put towards The Trust’s school refurbishment programme. Crispin Balmer, a Solicitor from Freeclaim Solicitors’ Serious Injury Unit, visited The Children’s Trust in Tadworth, Surrey to make the donation. Laura Treadaway, Corporate Fundraising Executive at The Children’s Trust accepted the cheque on the Trust’s behalf and said, “Thanks to everyone at Freeclaim Solicitors for this fantastic donation; it will make a big difference to our school refurbishment programme. Education is a key element of our support for children with brain injury and multiple disabilities and at The Children’s Trust School, the children follow our specially-developed Profound Education Curriculum, which includes a combination of education, therapies, care and 24-hour medical cover. While the education and support that we offer is second to none, after years of constant use the school building is in urgent need of refurbishment to ensure we can continue to provide this much needed service for children.”
Crispin Balmer, said, “We are proud to work with local, regional and national charities. The Children’s Trust provides outstanding support for children who have suffered a range of brain injuries and the work they do is vital. At Freeclaim Solicitors, we have a lot of experience in handling very serious brain injury claims for children who have been involved in accidents and so we are pleased that our donation will help The Children’s Trust to provide the care and support that our client’s and their families will need as part of their rehabilitation.”
