Life In A Wheelchair - The Questions You Always Wanted To Ask
As you might imagine, becoming paralysed at age 11 wasn't quite part of my life plan.
However, this was what happened to me in August 1993 when I sustained a spinal cord injury. And yet, I think it was the fact I was only 11 year old, which became my saving grace. Children, properly supported, can be even more resilient than adults.
Now, as a solicitor, I represent clients who have sustained similar catastrophic injuries. Everyday, I see the worries they have about financing their new life and injury; whether they can return to work, or even their own home; and of course the stresses their new injury puts on their personal relationships. I try my best to help them through this with the benefit of my own experiences both professional and personal.
