How we've helped injured survivors

How we've helped injured survivors

Hudgell Solicitors have been proud to partner with specialist rehabilitation and financial experts to ensure injured survivors of the Manchester Arena Bombing have benefitted from tailored packages of support.

Led by our chief executive Rachel Di Clemente, we approached a number of partner organisations, urging them to come together to ensure more than 150 people had the support they required.

Partnerships were established with rehab specialists Proclaim Care and independent financial advisors Frenkel Topping, agreeing a way to jointly fund and provide access to urgent treatment rehabilitation support and advice on financial matters.

An initial package of support included dedicated rehabilitation services and much-needed financial assistance.

We look forward to being able to provide further support in due course, with the legal case paving the way to provide further treatment options and dedicated case management support.

Why we stepped in

Why we stepped in

Whilst initial treatment and support was provided via the Greater Manchester Resilience Hub following the 2017 Manchester Arena bombing, many survivors were left struggling to access further treatment under the NHS and struggling to return to the lives they knew before.

This situation was compounded as the Covid-19 pandemic lengthened already unacceptable waiting lists for treatment.

With all potential civil actions for compensation awaiting the outcome of the Public Inquiry, at Hudgell Solicitors we recognised that hundreds of physically and psychologically injured survivors were going to be left without vital assistance for a number of years.

Whilst we have helped with some of the acute and intermediate needs of those we represent, we are now looking at the long-term needs of all we represent.

The focus is on ensuring we can provide full future rehabilitation support for those still in need of help to return their lives to some form of normality and towards achieving the best possible outcomes.

This includes helping people back to employment where possible, and to a position where they are able to look forward to the future again.

'Determined to provide immediate help'

'Immediate help'

Rachel Di Clemente, chief executive of Hudgell Solicitors, said: “The support we have provided to survivors of the Manchester Arena Bombing makes me hugely proud.

“Many suffered life-changing physical and psychological injuries, but after an initial wave of fundraising, found themselves left without the funds or support to access vital treatment and financial help.

“We were determined not to leave these people in limbo for years and to find a way of providing immediate help.

“It was challenging for our partners to offer the level of support they would normally due to the lack of funding, with all work carried out without any guarantees of recovering the cost.

“It was done to ensure rehabilitation was in place in spite of the barriers of the litigation, and our our clients have been really appreciative of the help they have received to help them rebuild their lives after the trauma of the terrorist attack.”

Since Elizabeth Maliakal took over my case for medical negligence. I am pleased to say her service was outstanding. Her communication was excellent. She was always up to date and made sure to keep in touch with me regularly. Elizabeth made sure I understood what was happening and always answered my questions in depth. Coming from a foreign background, I struggle to articulate my thoughts and feelings because of the language barrier, but Elizabeth worked her way around this. I am grateful for all her hard work. Thank you to Elizabeth Maliakal and Hudgell Solicitors.

Thank you to Hudgell Solicitors particularly Sarah Moore who was assigned to my case. I was kept well informed throughout the whole process via email and phone, and always received a prompt reply to any questions that I had. It took a long time for my case to come to close for various reasons but never during this time did I feel rushed or pressured into making a decision. Sarah was very empathetic and supported me throughout with her excellent level of knowledge and professionalism. Thank you again.

FAQs

FAQs

What support has been provided to injured survivors of the Manchester Arena bombing?

Since 2020, we have provided survivors with support including;

  • Needs assessments – Bespoke assessments in which specialist clinicians considered their needs and support, signposting to appropriate help.
    These assessments formed the basis for agreeing rehabilitation plans for clients and urgent treatment was identified to those most in need and still struggling to return to normal life.
  • Case Management Support – Clients were supported by dedicated case / rehabilitation managers who considered the treatment recommendations made and any accommodation requirements, home adaptations, aids and equipment needed. Consideration was also made the assistance which could be put in place to help survivors adapt or change their jobs, as well as supporting them with identifying and applying for relevant state benefits.
  • Counselling and physiotherapy – Many survivors experienced trauma related psychological symptoms which included avoidance of memory, situations and places.
    Many were left suffering from low mood, emotional numbing and finding it difficult to adjust back to life.
    Counselling and physiotherapy providers were found and advised of the likely number of referrals, ensuring suitable resources were put in place.
  • Behavioural therapist support – This was secured to support some of our younger clients in particular, who developed behavioural issues related to being affected by the events of the terror attack.
  • Ongoing treatment reviews – Once treatment and support started, meetings were held between our legal team and Proclaim Care to review the cases and discuss any issues. This was initially done on a weekly basis and then moved to two weeks, then every three weeks as the support became more established.
