Birchall Blackburn Law is a proud sponsor of the Sudden Bereavement Helpline

On a daily basis our legal teams help bereaved people and we know that we must be more than lawyers in such circumstances. Whether we are supporting a family in the initial stages of coming to terms with the death of a loved one or helping them adapt to life in the long-term, our team is there every step of the way. So, we are very proud to be able to support such a vital and necessary service for families facing the sudden death of a loved one.

It is hard to think of anything more shocking and overwhelming than the sudden death of someone you are close to and love. Unfortunately, it is something I see all too frequently as we help many families in the aftermath of road traffic collisions and fatal criminal injuries.

It is absolutely vital that grieving families can immediately access professional, specialist and compassionate bereavement support. The quicker people can get help, the quicker they can start to rebuild their lives. That is why the Sudden Bereavement Helpline is such an essential service and I’m delighted we can support the brilliant helpline case workers.”
