Multilingual support for Polish-speaking client
Ms L, who is a Polish speaker, required surgery after she slipped at work and tore the cartilage in her knee. She fell on a staircase and twisted her left knee, leading to a meniscal tear which had to be treated through surgery.
David Knipe, who handled the case alongside Sintons’ Polish-speaking lawyers, explained: “We often help people whose first language isn’t English and we have people here at Sintons who are not only legal experts but who can also speak fluent Polish and Romanian.
“If you’ve been injured, we know it can be a stressful time, so we appreciate that being able to talk to someone in your native language can help make things a little bit easier.”
Ms L said: “I felt I was in the best hands. Big thank you for David. Many thanks to the Polish team at Sintons as well for advice and translating everything from English to Polish language. I highly recommend them.”
As well as compensation, Sintons’ personal injury lawyers help people access any physical and psychological rehabilitation they need to recover from their injury and they have experience in accidents at work, as well as brain and spinal injuries and industrial disease.
David Knipe added: “Whatever the type of injury, we have the relevant experience and in-house resources to ensure that the process is seamless and our clients know they’ll always be talking to someone who understands their situation.”
