Sintons supports important ABI conference


A nationally-significant event which will explore the issue of brain injuries and the criminal justice system, and which will attract professionals from across the UK, is being supported by law firm Sintons.

Sintons have collaborated with the British Association of Brain Injury Case Managers (BABICM) in holding a conference to explore the reasons behind the high percentage of people with acquired brain injuries (ABI) in the criminal justice system, and how best to support them.

The event – “ABI & The Criminal Justice System: Police, Prison, Probation & Beyond ”– is being held in York in September, and is supported by law firm Sintons, whose specialist neurotrauma team represents seriously injured people across the UK. The team is regarded as a powerhouse in the North of England for its work in supporting people with life-changing injuries.

Delegates, who will attend from across the UK, will learn more about topics including the impact on those with ABI in the criminal justice system at the initial point of custody, the role of intermediaries in supporting vulnerable adults, and rehabilitation opportunities and probation.

John Davis, one of the UK’s leading serious injury lawyers and consultant in the neurotrauma team at Sintons, said: “This event will examine the difficult and complex issue of how to best address ABI in the criminal justice system, and how to offer the appropriate support which many feel is not sufficiently available. We are very pleased to work alongside BABICM in bringing this hugely important topic to the fore.”
