International Day of Persons with Disabilities 2013

Over a billion people live with some form of disability.  This is a staggering 15% of the world’s population.  Unfortunately, around the world they face many barriers to participating as equal members of society and in the UK this includes many people living with a brain injury.

International Day of Persons with Disabilities 2013: 3 December

The UN recognising that these people make up a disproportionate number of the world’s poorest, usually lack what we take for granted such as access to education, work and medical care.  So in 2006 it adopted the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and, as part of its development work, uses the International Day of Persons with Disabilities to raise awareness of its goal of tackling disability.

What our clients say

We know that we have been extremely fortunate to have had such a consummate PI lawyer in Andy acting on our behalf but we have also been blessed by having had his support, trust, friendship and loyalty throughout. We cannot ever thank him enough.

The compensation Nicola has received has helped her move from a tiny council flat into a massive bungalow which has been specifically adapted. It has enabled her to have a better life.

If it was not for the help of my solicitor I don't know where I would have been today. He provided a great deal of emotional support and secured compensation at various stages from the insurance company to fund my treatment and allow me to live. He was there from start to finish.

Higgs & Sons acted for us for 5 years until our daughters claim for personal injuries was finally settled. Ian remains a trustee of our daughters trust fund and we now look upon him as a friend.
