Manchester-based Pannone & Partners has set up a catastrophic injuries unit in response to an increasing need for an “all-round service” from clients.
The unit will respond to clients who have been severely injured by accidents or disease, and will unite all members of the firm who provide expertise throughout the areas of personal injury (PI), multiparty and disaster litigation.
Carol Jackson, head of the PI department and member of the Richard Grand Society, will also head the new unit.
She says: “Each person who has suffered a catastrophic injury has unique physical, intellectual and rehabilitation problems. The severity of their injuries usually means that we have to provide a full range of services for them. By creating this dedicated unit, we’re ensuring that all our expertise works together to provide a seamless service.”
Fourteen specialist partners will make up the new team, which will enable the firm to continue providing for the client after the compensation case is finished.
