Legal Partnerships

Overview

Since Steel Bones began in 2015, we have had an ever-growing number of conversations with our registered families regarding accidents they have had or concerns over their healthcare.  We are passionate about providing amputee families with the very best advice, tailored for their needs and so for the last 2/3 years, we have been trying to find the best model for providing amputee families with superb and tailored legal advice to them 121.

In 2021, Steel Bones Trustees underwent a formal procurement process to appoint specialist legal partners who were selected for their expertise in dealing with medical negligence and personal injury cases. Trustees chose to launch the first-ever formal Legal Partnership with Irwin Mitchell, CFG Law and Tees Law.

The lawyers we are working with have been handpicked carefully for the Steel Bones Community.  They are down-to-earth, proactive and approachable.  We are very excited to kickstart this partnership.

Why Do We Have Legal Partners?

Since Steel Bones’ inception, we have received a growing number of calls and emails from amputees and their family members not knowing which way to turn for advice on what they think may be potential legal claims.  This has increased far more with the peer mentoring programme we provide. So much so, Trustees felt compelled to introduce a new role called Legal Buddy, with one of our volunteers who has had personal experience of this. The Legal Buddy supports the Development Manager in walking the family through the Legal process and introducing them to 2 expert Lawyers who can help evaluate the best next steps.  Sometimes this may not result in any further legal processes but perhaps just being given excellent advice with a different approach to get the answers they need.

Given this has been hugely successful in helping many amputee families, we launched a formal collaboration. We very much enjoy working with Law Firms that are passionate about finding the best solutions for their clients and who have expertise in amputation cases.  We only work with Firms that are of excellent reputation and represented on Legal 500.  We enjoy working with Lawyers one to one and ensuring we get to know exactly who the individuals are that will be helping our families find answers to their questions.

Steel Bones underwent a formal procurement process to appoint specialist legal partners who were selected for their expertise in dealing with medical negligence and personal injury cases. Trustees chose to launch the first ever formal Legal Partnership with Irwin Mitchell, CFG Law and Tees Law.

The arrangement is that the Law Firms contribute to a fund helping to provide year-round stability to our key National Programmes.  The Law Firms will also be providing in kind support and resources to provide specialist advice in marketing, and communications whilst also connecting us with the wider community to build awareness of our work.  None of the law firms will make any payments to Steel Bones for any introduction or referral of customers.
