Serious injury claim specialists Thompsons Solicitors is proud to announce its continued support of the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA) as a platinum partner.

Thompsons Solicitors has teams of specialist spinal injury lawyers in offices across the UK uniquely dedicated to only ever representing injured people, never insurers or employers. Thompsons Solicitors has supported a significant number of spinal cord injury survivors, and their families, since its founding in 1921.

The renewed partnership marks Thompson’s ongoing relationship with the SIA for the firm, with the sponsorship going towards funding the charity’s advice line and peer support officers, who provide exceptional one-to-one care for those with spinal cord injuries.

In addition to peer support, the SIA provides spinal cord injury survivors and their families with the expert rehabilitation and treatment needed to ensure they can live full and active lives post-injury.

""We are extremely proud to once again show our support for the SIA through this partnership.”"

We are extremely proud to once again show our support for the SIA through this partnership.”

Samantha continued: “Our experience and specialism combined with our extensive in-house training programmes ensure our lawyers remain abreast of key treatments and research. Our clients are in the hands of an experienced legal team with strength in depth. It is this level of care and detail that ensures our clients comment time and again on our exceptional legal services.”
