Our Work with Spinal Injuries Association

We are very proud of our links with the Spinal Injuries Association. As corporate partners and sponsors of SIA peer support workers, Paul Rhodes and John Leonard, we are committed to doing what we can to make a difference to people and families affected by spinal cord injuries.

It is more than just donating money. It is about identifying how we can all better help people affected by spinal cord injuries on any number of levels.

Paul and John work tirelessly to provide invaluable help and support to people with spinal cord injuries, as well as their families and friends. Paul, John and their colleagues are important points of contact within many hospitals and in the wider community, providing a link to SIA and supporting hard working hospital staff across the country. 

Our relationship with Paul and John helps us keep in touch with those working and being treated in hospitals and rehabilitation centres across the Midlands. Paul and John’s own experience with spinal cord injury gives them a unique insight into the daily challenges faced by those who have sustained damage to their spinal cord through illness or injury, so they really understand the complex emotions and frightening situation you find yourself in. They are also invaluable in helping us to work with you, in a way that suits your needs.

Whilst Brethertons has a team of lawyers dedicated to spinal cord injury claims litigation, we also provide services and assistance that go far beyond compensation. We help with family law advice, employment law advice, powers of attorney and estate planning advice, personal injury trusts advice and property ownership advice.

We also help with benefits assistance, introduction to contacts, immediate needs funding, patient group assistance, fundraising, research funding and other funding for special projects within spinal units.
