About Leigh Day

Leigh Day is a national law firm supporting clients across England and Wales, specialising in claims involving spinal cord injury.

Ranked in the top tier by the two main legal directories, Chambers & Partners and The Legal 500 in the fields of personal injury and clinical negligence, they have been involved in several of the country’s landmark cases in these areas of the law.   They are also ranked at the very top of personal injury firms in England and Wales by the Times, and in 2023 they won UK Law Firm of The Year in the Chambers Europe Awards. 

Leigh Day’s expert spinal cord injury solicitors act in all kinds of cases, including road traffic collisions, accidents at work and at home, accidents in public places, extreme sports, train crashes and terrorist attacks. 

Their medical negligence team has a wealth of experience helping people who have suffered spinal cord injury through substandard care by medical professionals, including misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, incorrect treatment and surgical mistakes.

The firm is very effective at securing funding for early rehabilitation and support, and in obtaining early interim payments to avoid their clients suffering financial hardship, on top of everything else that they and their families are going through. They have helped many clients with spinal cord injury over the years to achieve financial security and to rebuild their lives.

Leigh Day has been a long-time supporter of charities working to improve the quality of the lives of people living with spinal cord injury and is proud to be a partner of Stoke Mandeville Spinal Research.

James Glasper, Partner at Leigh Day, who specialises in spinal cord injury claims states:

As a firm specialising in spinal cord injury claims, we have been a long-time supporter of charities working to improve the quality of the lives of people living with spinal cord injury and we are delighted to announce that we are now partnering with Stoke Mandeville Spinal Research, which does this through facilitating pioneering research in the important areas of upper limb function, neuropathic pain, pressure ulcers and urinary tract infections."

Commenting on the new partnership, SMSR Corporate & Community Fundraiser, Kate Favell, said:
 "On behalf of the Stoke Mandeville Spinal Research team, we are delighted to be working with our friends at Leigh Day, who are paving the way to help ensure we continue to raise awareness about spinal cord injury through a shared voice, and in turn, fund innovative and unique research projects focussing on making a real difference to the daily lives of people living with SCI."
