The clinical negligence and personal injury team at Penningtons Manches is pleased to support local Citizens Advice Bureaux (CAB) in London and the South East.
This month, the team has provided free training sessions to CAB offices in Berkshire, Surrey and Kent. The sessions were aimed at helping CAB advisers to deal with enquiries from members of the public who may have suffered personal injury as a result of road traffic accidents, accidents in the workplace, faulty products and medical negligence, for example.
This is an ongoing initiative of the team, which offers regular support to CABs in the form of seminars and assistance with enquiries from the public. Upcoming training sessions are currently scheduled for CAB offices in London.
Lucie Prothero, senior associate in the clinical negligence and personal injury team at Penningtons Manches LLP, commented: “Every year we are delighted to help CAB advisers and their clients across London and the South East. We have seen first-hand the vital support that they give to our communities, often helping the most vulnerable members of our society. We are delighted to be able to assist the CABs in this way and look forward to building upon our programme of activities in years to come.”
