Personal injury law firm network to launch in London

A new network of London firms is being launched to give personal injury advice across the capital.

London Accident Link intends to provide local expertise to accident victims. By calling a freephone number they will be directed to a local lawyer drawn from 24 London firms who can offer advice and help in pursuing a personal injury claim.

The network, chaired by Marvin Simons of Seddons, is non profit-making and the lawyers involved are members of groups like the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers and the Law Society Personal Injury Panel.

Novelist Nina Bawden, whose husband died in the Potters Bar rail crash, will launch the new service on Wednesday. In a speech Bawden will support the need for adequate compensation for victims of accidents.
