Sintons creates specialist Romanian-speaking personal injury team
After the creation of its Polish-speaking team four years ago, Sintons has been able to secure justice for significant numbers of Polish people who sustained injuries while living or working in the UK, who may not otherwise have pursued a claim and accessed the rehabilitation and support they needed to rebuild their lives.
Now, to increase its support to under-represented communities in the UK even further, the law firm has established a specialist Romanian team, to deliver bespoke support to people who have been injured from the very earliest days of their recovery.
The firm has recruited Anisoara Boba, a Romanian-speaking lawyer, to help deliver its new dedicated Romanian personal injury service.
Anisoara ran her own law practice in Romania and has a strong track record in supporting people in both civil and criminal matters.
“I believe that working in the legal sector is an honour and a privilege, offering people the chance to have access to justice,” she says.
“I share Sintons’ commitment to fighting hard to secure this for our clients. I am very pleased to be able to represent people for whom English may not be their first language, and who may otherwise feel without a voice, and am delighted Sintons has established this service for Romanian-speaking people.”
Phil Davison, head of general personal injury at Sintons, says: “We are very pleased to add this new service to our offering. We have a very sizeable population of Romanian-speaking people in the UK, and we are all too aware of the need to increase the support available to them in rebuilding their lives after accident and injury.
“Through the creation of our Polish-speaking team, we have seen the huge benefit this has been to our clients, many of whom may not have otherwise pursued a claim and sacrificed the opportunity to access the support with their recovery they badly need.
“We hear time and again what a huge relief it is for them to feel they have someone on their side who speaks their language and makes what can feel like a very daunting process more understandable and accessible.
“We are delighted to be able to extend this very specialist support to Romanian claimants and to add Anisoara to our team. She has extensive experience of supporting people throughout the process of a claim, being by their side every step of the way in securing the very best outcome for them, and we look forward to working with her in the development of this new addition to our nationally-renowned personal injury offering.”
