Working with Family Liaison Officers
Slater and Gordon has been working with Family Liaison Officers (FLOs), Roads Policing and police officers of many ranks and roles for many years to support members of the public who've been impacted by road traffic collisions, abuse, mass disasters and terrorism.
Slater and Gordon recognises the vital investigative role Family Liaison Officers (FLOs) play in supporting individuals and families of those who have fallen victim to crime, road fatalities, mass disaster and other life-changing incidents.
FLOs are integral to the process of seeking justice, providing a link between families and legal teams and helping create a supportive environment where those affected can receive additional emotional and practical support.
Our lawyers have appreciated the sensitivity, compassion and impartiality displayed by these professionals in countless cases, during which they have provided information relating to additional services available to families through charities and other associations. Our legal professionals can ensure that in addition to this support, victims receive the best possible independent advice from leaders in the field.
At Slater and Gordon, we want to know about your training and educational events. Our lawyers have regularly provided input and can create bespoke presentations to educate and inform your audience.

Treatment and rehabilitation support
In the majority of cases, the sooner that rehabilitation and treatment begins, the better the outcome will be. We work with some of the best case managers and treatment providers in the UK to ensure the treatment our clients receive is the best available. We seek early interim payments a key part of our strategy to ensure there's funding to begin as soon as possible, giving our clients the best chance to maximise recovery and future independence.
No financial risk
The vast majority of personal injury cases are funded by a No Win No Fee agreement. What this basically means is if the case is lost, there'll be no cost to our clients, so there's no financial risk.

As a victim of sustained abuse, within a very powerful institution who had tried to silence me for decades, a Public Inquiry is a very daunting thing to be part of. Richard Scorer and all his team at Slater and Gordon were incredible with their care, kindness, support and availability to help me through what was at times a very overwhelming and harrowing experience.

At all times I felt valued and heard, able to have a voice to give evidence in my own words. I couldn't speak more highly of Richard and everyone, without exception, at Slater and Gordon who gave me the support and strength to see through what was a very long and drawn out process.
