SOUTHPORT LAW FIRM GETS PERSONAL FOR NATIONAL MARKETING CAMPAIGN
SOUTHPORT based Fletchers
Solicitors has launched a £1million national marketing campaign that
is very personal for the firm's CEO Ed Fletcher.
The campaign, advertising the firm's specialist services for people
suffering severe personal injury and medical negligence, will run
across cinema, radio, online, outdoor and press and includes a 30
second film based on Ed's own story.
Ed severed his spinal chord in a motorbike accident in 1999 and
believes that this experience helps shape everything his firm's
support of others who have suffered life altering accidents and
"Our message for people with injuries and their families is
that you won't be going through this alone.
Its common for people to feel that their life is over at times
like these, we try to show them that actually they have a new life
that is only just beginning. I wanted to use my own experience
because it has helped inform everything we do as a firm and
challenges the traditional perception that for lawyers these cases
are 'just a job.' For us, that's certainly not the case." explains Ed.
A senior litigator and member of the Association of Personal Injury
Lawyers (APIL), Ed also chairs the North West Spinal Injuries Centre
Patient Group. He is a mentor for young people with recently
sustained spinal cord injury.
He remains a motorbike enthusiast and belongs to the National
Association of Bikers with a Disability (NABD).
Ed is also a keen hand-cyclist, sit-skiier and swimmer. He was also
a member of the Great Britain Para-Triathlon Squad.
Fletchers handles a significant proportion of the UK's serious
personal injury claims and also handles one in 25 of the UK's
medical negligence cases.
