FBC Manby Bowdler provides legal advice at event for children and young adults with disabilities
14 Nov 2019

Specialists from FBC Manby Bowdler will be on hand to provide legal advice and support at a flagship event for children and young people with disabilities and their families today.

Lawyers from the Firm’s Serious Injury Team will be at Kidz to Adultz North in Manchester at stand D15. It follows on from a successful attendance at the Kidz to Adultz Middle event earlier this year.

The free event, hosted by Disabled Living, intends to offer a one-stop shop dedicated to children and young adults up to 25 years with disabilities and additional needs, their parents, carers and professionals who support and work with them.

FBC Manby Bowdler can provide specialist legal advice to children and adults who have sustained complex injuries, supporting them and their families in seeking the compensation they need to ensure access to rehabilitation. Our team is dedicated to achieving the best outcome for its clients, working with expert care providers to deliver the best support packages available for individuals left with complex needs. 

In addition our specialists can advise on all aspects of Court of Protection and Deputyship applications, which may need to be put into place when an individual involved in an accident loses the capacity to make decisions for themselves. FBC Manby Bowdler Partner, Julie Burn, can also be appointed as a professional Deputy if there is no member of the family or friend able to do so. 

The team works closely with local and national charities including the Child Brain Injury Trust, Headway, Brake, Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital, The Spinal Injuries Association as well as many others.

Lead Partner, Tim Gray said: “We are proud to be attending and supporting Disabled Living with its Kidz to Adult North event. The transition from a child to adult can be daunting for the family when dealing with a complex disability. This event plays an important role in bringing professionals and experts together to share best practice. 

“We are committed to helping those with disabilities to live as independently as possible. We are also specialists in supporting those who have sustained catastrophic injuries through personal injury or medical negligence, ensuring they receive the appropriate financial settlement and supportive package of long term care.”  

Tim is looking forward to greeting visitors to the FBCMB stand on the day along with Serious Injury Team colleagues, Sue Todhunter and Kelly Richards; and Solicitor Hannah Smith, who specialises in Court of Protection and Deputyship work
