Corisande Collins suffered a spinal fracture and complete paralysis of the lower limbs at the age of 20 in a workplace accident.

At the time of her accident, Corisande was working part-time at a local store, to help fund her university degree, when a roll cage fell on her back.

She was rushed to hospital where she learned she had been severely injured and that she would never walk again.

Thompsons Solicitors has worked with Corisande to secure compensation for her devastating injuries.

After 18 months, Corisande returned to university on a part-time basis and interim payment secured by Thompsons Solicitors meant she also has a property close to her family home, fully adapted to meet her needs.

She said: “After a very difficult 18 months I believe my life is beginning to get back on track. Although my injuries are permanent, they will not stop me from achieving all I want from life. I would not be in the position I am without the support of my friends, family and the professionals around me.”
