Academic Success for Brain Injured Client


Laura Bailey, a former client of Stephen Nye in the Birmingham office is this week celebrating the successful completion of her Fine Art degree course at De Montfort University in Leicester. Laura came to IM following a serious RTA in which she sustained a very severe brain injury and after other solicitors had failed to progress her claim. On taking over the claim, Stephen was able to secure substantial interim payments to put in place a comprehensive care and support package.

Laura was very keen to progress her studies which had been curtailed by her accident and with the immeasurable support of her Case Manager Rebecca Hey, a supported place was obtained at the University and the care arrangements were adapted to fit around her studies.

Laura's quality of life was enhanced greatly by being able to return to her peer group and she is now enjoying the fruits of her labour, having just been awarded a 2:2 degree. Laura hopes to continue her art work and to inspire others who have sustained such serious injuries.
