Mike Clarke of Slee Blackwell’s Bideford office was one of the speakers at the annual head injury conference near Exeter organised by Headway, the national charity for brain injury. Mike, a specialist injury lawyer for over 20 years, talked to delegates about various issues confronting the lawyer dealing with a claim by a brain-injured client, followed by a general question-and-answer session. Mike has long experience in dealing with head injury claims and is also the secretary of Headway North Devon, affiliated to the national charity and based in Barnstaple.
“Headway is the only national charity dealing with acquired brain injuries and provides a vital service to injured clients, with guidance and advice, as well as local facilities run by dedicated volunteers. Head injuries are much more common than people realise and the effects can be devastating for the victim and his family. Headway is dedicated to raising awareness of such injuries and I am pleased to be associated with such a worthwhile cause”, he said.
