Following a motorcycle accident, Les now lives with brain damage. Fletcher’s worked with Les’ brother, Paul to secure justice
“Fletchers came as a recommendation. I went online and looked at their background and they’re very heavily involved in motorcycle accidents. I met with a couple of people who work there and it felt right, it’s a good fit. They were relaxed, they came across as a family firm and they care about people. They’ve been there since day one. Effectively, it’s an extra arm of the family dealing with Fletchers.”

Key case timeline
Our client was involved in a Road Traffic Accident in 2016. As a result of this accident he suffered a fractured vertebrae, fractured collar bone, requiring internal fixation, both lungs collapsed, all ribs fractured, a fracture to the right and left arm, fractures to the pelvis amputation of the right leg below the knee and a traumatic head injury. The client’s life has dramatically changed following the accident he requires continuous 2-1 care and a Deputy to manage his property and affairs.
As well as the legal team handling his accident claim, our Court of Protection team have utilised interim payments to initially rent a property to enable him to be discharged from hospital and subsequently purchase and adapt a property closer to family and friends to provide a forever home. The team also made a Statutory Will for the client which helped to appease his concerns for the future.
The Deputy’s team will continue to be involved after the case has settled to manage the client’s finances including employing his care team.
