Back Up works with law firms that have the expertise and track record to act on behalf of people who have sustained a spinal cord injury. The list comprises of eight specialist firms in England and Wales and two in Scotland.
The legal panel aims to help newly injured people find the best lawyer for them. There can be a lot to cope with in the weeks and months following a spinal cord injury, and with a multitude of law firms offering their services, trying to choose a solicitor can bring additional pressure. Back Up believes it’s important for people to have a choice to ensure that they can find the right solicitor for their circumstances. The panel supports people with spinal cord injury to choose from firms with the appropriate experience and knowledge of spinal cord injury.

- pursue a fair compensation claim.

#NoLimits cycle ride 2021
Stewarts will be participating in the 2021 edition of The Back Up Trust’s #NoLimits charity bike ride. A team from Stewarts will take part in the annual event for the fourth year running.
#NoLimits is an annual cycling event held to raise funds for The Back Up Trust. The event is held in memory of Danny Turnbull, a former partner at Stewarts and trustee of The Back Up Trust, who sadly lost his battle with cancer in April 2017. Danny was instrumental in opening up the annual London to Paris event to hand cyclists in 2012 and undertook the challenge himself that year.
This year’s event will be held on 4-5 September 2021. It will be a virtual event, logging any cycle ride completed over the weekend. There will also be an option to join Back Up at Goodwood Motor Circuit on Sunday, 5 September to complete some miles together in a group.
More information on the event can be found here.
Since 2018, an annual fundraising event has been held in some format in Danny’s memory. A write up of the first event riding from London to Paris can be found here.
Lauren Pethick wrote a blog post on her experience after the first event, which can be read here.
Last year’s event was held virtually, and an overview can be found here.
