Thrings is celebrating the success of the Brain Injury Group – of which it is a member – that won an award for innovation and inspiration last Thursday, 10th November. The United Kingdom Acquired Brain Injury Forum (UKABIF) Awards are held annually and this year the co-founder of the Brain Injury Group, catastrophic injury solicitor Francis Lacy Scott, gained recognition for this innovative group by being named the UKABIF Lawyer Innovator of the Year.
Thrings was one of the founding members when the Brain Injury Group was formed in April this year. “We are delighted to see the Brain Injury Group gain recognition for its innovation in the field of brain injury,” says Neil Elliott, Partner at Thrings. “We joined the Group in the belief it can bring about significant benefits in the way brain injury claims and rehabilitation are carried out and it’s good to see this inspirational group has won professional praise and an Award.”
The Brain Injury Group is a national network of specialist brain injury lawyers working in tandem with a range of other professionals involved in welfare, financial and family services to support people with acquired brain injuries. Bringing all these elements together under the Brain Injury Group banner creates a clear route for brain injured clients and their families to access the support they need from accident through rehabilitation and on to compensation. By having members across the country, the Brain Injury Group ensures its clients and their families can find specialist brain injury advice and a full range of support services close to home.
When presenting the Award Bill Braithwaite QC said: “The creation and development of the Brain Injury Group will doubtless be a significant step forwards in providing an improved service to all those who suffer serious brain injury.”
