West Mids law firm appointed to The Katie Piper Foundation legal panel

Serious injury law firm Lime Solicitors has been appointed as a founding member of The Katie Piper Foundation’s first-ever national legal panel.

Model and campaigner Katie Piper OBE, who fell victim to an acid attack in 2008, set up The Katie Piper Foundation in 2009 to support adult survivors of burns and people with scars from traumatic incidents. The charity focuses on delivering and providing access to sustainable rehabilitation services and individualised care, including specialist physiotherapy, goal-focused activities, and counselling.

Lime Solicitors will now be one of the first ports of call for survivors of burns and scars seeking legal support as a result of a life-changing injury in order to fund the rehabilitation they need to maximise their independence and ensure the best quality of life possible.Martin Usher, head of serious injury at Lime Solicitors, said:

“We are extremely proud and privileged to have become one of the founding members of The Katie Piper Foundation’s new legal panel.

“We understand the pain and distress burn and scar injuries can cause, both mentally and physically, and recognise that many survivors may need extensive medical help, corrective surgery and therapy so they can begin to rebuild their life and a future they deserve.

“Early access to a sustainable and bespoke rehabilitation programme is crucial, so working collaboratively with The Katie Piper Foundation means we can help support more people from a very early stage in their journey and help provide better outcomes for them and their family.”

Lime Solicitors is one of four founding law firms on the legal panel and will also be supporting The Katie Piper Foundation with fundraising projects and awareness-raising initiatives. Sarah Green, chief executive at The Katie Piper Foundation, added:

“We are delighted to launch The Katie Piper Foundations’ first Legal Panel for survivors of burns and traumatic scarring. The panel will give survivors choice when pursuing a legal claim.

“We have chosen four legal firms with a knowledge and understanding not only of the work we deliver but also of the complexities involved in burns and traumatic injuries. 

“The firms all share our passion and values in ensuring that survivors have the best opportunity to move forward in their recovery and build the future they want and deserve. 

“As a small charity, we believe in the power of collaboration and look forward to demonstrating this by working together over the next year.”
