A Warwickshire lawyer has joined a panel offering free legal advice to people bereaved and injured following the terror attacks in London.

Jeanette Whyman, head of Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury Group at Leamington-based Wright Hassall, has signed up to the London Pro Bono Panel which is being supported by the Legal Aid Agency, the Law Society of England and Wales and LawWorks – the solicitors’ pro bono charity.

The panel is offering advice, and representation where required, for those bereaved or injured by the attacks on Westminster Bridge on March 22, London Bridge and Borough Market on June 3, and near the Finsbury Park Mosque on June 19.

Jeanette said: “People affected by these terrible attacks will be undergoing huge personal distress, both physically and emotionally.

“It is vital victims and their families have access to support networks to help them during this very difficult time.

“The legal profession wants to help those who are suffering, as we know there are many complex legal issues which can arise in the aftermath of a terrorist outrage.

“The hope is that by offering free legal advice, the profession can help to remove some of the worry for the victims.”

The panel is operating on a referral basis. For further information go www.lawworks.org.uk
