Last night we won two more industry awards at the Personal Injury Awards 2021, with Natalie Cosgrove winning ‘Clinical Negligence Lawyer of the Year’ and our Child Abuse Compensation team winning ‘Best Claimant Team of the Year’.

The annual awards highlight and celebrate the achievements of people and organisations across the personal injury sector and, in further recognition of our strength of offering in this area, our Serious Injury team was nominated for Catastrophic Injury Team of the Year.

Our child abuse compensation team has helped many claimants receive justice and compensation for past abuse, most notably under the Lambeth Redress Scheme, where they have helped survivors recover over £15m collectively since the scheme began. 

The judges said: “Switalskis has a go-to team for child abuse cases. They are actively committed to making things better for their clients and continue to do exceptional work.”

Natalie Cosgrove has worked tirelessly for parents affected by birth injuries and infant deaths for a number of years and this year has attracted the attention of mainstream national media, including Channel 4 News and The Independent, raising awareness of failings in maternity services in several NHS Trusts across the country and encouraging other parents affected to get the support they need.

Speaking about Natalie’s accolade, judges in the highly competitive Clinical Negligence Lawyer of the Year category said that Natalie is “excellent, an absolute star.”

I’m absolutely thrilled with the deserved recognition given to our teams at the Personal Injury Awards. This is not only testament to the hard work and dedication of these incredible people, but also a celebration of the work Switalskis carries out on a day to day basis across many of its practice areas helping the most vulnerable in society.
