Spencers & Roadpeace - working together to support road crash victims
September 18, 2014 at 11:55 AM
Spencers Solicitors are pleased to announce their new role as a corporate supporter for RoadPeace, the national charity for road crash victims.
RoadPeace works directly with those bereaved or injured through road crashes, providing much needed support and ensuring the trauma they suffer is acknowledged and justice achieved. They also campaign tirelessly for road danger reduction and fight to ensure adequate support services exist for victims and their loved ones, both in the immediate aftermath of road death or injury, and in the face of any legal obstacles.
Through their work they act to inform and influence a range of important groups including policy makers, government agencies, the media and the general public. Their vision is for a society in which road deaths and injuries are no longer seen as acceptable, road crash victims are respected for their rights to care and support, and justice is prioritised for all who suffer.
Jane Gittins, Solicitor and Head of Legal Operations at Spencers Solicitors commented:
"Our lengthy experience with victims of road crashes means we are all too aware of the difficulties faced by so many in the aftermath of a tragic fatality. We are delighted to be able to support the stellar work RoadPeace do in both preventing future victims and aiding those already suffering from the trauma of a road crash."
Reflecting on the new partnership, Sara Dowling, Campaigns and Development Manager from RoadPeace said:
"Roadpeace is delighted to have Spencers Solicitors on board to support our work helping families after road death injury. Their legal position in fighting for justice for victims of road crashes means they hold valuable insight into how difficult it can be for people to negotiate the legal network. We look forward to working with them to campaign for a better outcome for road crash victims."
