Support services for victims

Undergoing a medical negligence or personal injury claim can be a time of great difficulty, one where victims and families may also be trying to deal with bereavement, life-changing injuries and other losses. At Universa Law we treat our clients with care and compassion and guide clients where suitable to many support groups. 


Below are details which may be useful. 

Action Against Medical Accidents

Supporting people affected by avoidable harm in healthcare, helping them achieve justice, and promoting better patient safety for all. 



A free support service supporting people bereaved and seriously injured by road crashes. They also help people become community champions for safe and healthy mobility and campaign for safe streets and the rights of road victims. 


Care for the Family 

A national charity which helps those who face family difficulties, particularly in the areas of marriage, parenting and bereavement. They aim to be accessible to every family whatever their circumstances. 


Child Bereavement UK

Helps children and young people (up to the age of 25) when someone important to them has died or is not expected to live. Also supports parents and the wider family when a baby or child of any age dies.


Citizens Advice Bureau – accidents at work

Helpful information regarding accidents in the workplace, what to do if you can’t work, and accessing pay and benefits. 


Disabled Living

A leading organisation which provides impartial information and advice about equipment and services for disabled individuals, their families and carers. 



Motability runs the Motability Scheme in the UK intended to enable disabled people, their families and their carers to lease a new car, scooter or powered wheelchair, using their disability benefit.


Rebuilding Shattered Lives

This charity aims to refocus attention on the real situation: that too many people suffer needless injuries; that these injuries are preventable; and that the people who suffer them must be able to have access to the support they need to rebuild their lives. 



To talk about anything, anyone can contact Samaritans 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. 


Sands – Stillbirth and neonatal charity

Bereavement care and support for families  


Spinal Injuries Association

A go-to place for everyone affected by spinal cord injury, so that the charity can quickly connect victims (and their families) to the vast network of people, organisations and services they need.


If you or someone you know has been a victim of medical negligence or a personal injury where someone else was at fault, you might want to claim compensation for your injury. 


Contact the Universa Law legal team for a free initial consultation. We work on a No Win No Fee basis, which we believe is the most risk-free and stress-free way of claiming as you never have to send a payment to us, win or lose.
