Why our client chose Aspire Law

When it comes to choosing legal support during life’s most challenging moments, the decision is crucial. We’re here to show you why one of our clients, Kris, made the choice to instruct and entrust Aspire Law with his claim. Following a life-altering incident on Westminster Bridge, Kris was left with a life-changing spinal cord injury. Kris explains why Aspire Law stood out as the trusted law firm in his journey. In this video, Kris explains the reasons behind this choice, shedding light on the values and commitment that set Aspire Law apart.


We have a highly experienced and committed team of specialist spinal cord injury solicitors.

We are the only UK law firm dealing exclusively with spinal cord injury claims. We do nothing else.

We are the only UK law firm to be endorsed by all three of the major spinal cord injury charities; Aspire, Spinal Injuries Association and Back Up.

We have vast experience of all types of complex and difficult SCI cases, including clinical negligence claims, accidents abroad and more unusual claims such as those resulting from aviation accidents. We also take on risky cases that other law firms shy away from.

We invest heavily in our specialist team to make sure they truly understand not only the legal intricacies but the day-to-day impact of spinal cord injury.



We know how to maximise results for clients and have the highest settlements for SCI claims. We have an outstanding track record and have secured over £150 million in compensation for clients since we started in 2015.

We secured £17 million for one client alone, possibly the highest settlement ever achieved for an adult in the UK.

You can be sure we will secure the maximum possible compensation for you in the quickest possible time.

We also secure early interim payments to provide for your rehabilitation, equipment and accommodation needs.



For us this is more than a job, it’s a passion, born of many years’ experience helping clients who have suffered life changing spinal cord injury. We genuinely care.

In contrast, many law firms see their clients primarily as a way of making money. They often deduct a substantial success fee from clients’ compensation for personal injury cases. We never do anything like this, because we treat our clients as people, not commodities, and we have their best interests at heart.

We are completely committed to our clients and work tirelessly and relentlessly to ensure the best possible outcome for each and every one.

You can be sure we’ll listen, understand and provide the support you need throughout the tough times ahead. We’ll look after you all the way.



We live and breathe SCI. We know that no two types of injury are the same. We see the breadth of SCI every day and know how each and every person is affected differently. Some of our own lawyers have personal lived experience of SCI.

All of this means we have real empathy with our clients’ fears and the emotional and physical challenges involved in SCI. We really do understand, and we know what we need to do to help you deal with the next chapter and move on to get the most out of life.



We assemble a dedicated team of specialist spinal cord injury solicitors to work on your individual case, providing a bespoke, personal service built around your particular circumstances and requirements. We will meet with you in hospital, at your home or at one of our offices. One of the specialist solicitors will be assigned as your main contact, but the whole team will get to know you and understand your concerns and objectives. This close relationship between team and client is invaluable, because it allows us to ensure you get the best possible settlement.



We are thorough, highly efficient and leave no stone unturned. We will fight for you
and your family until your case is resolved and your requirements are fulfilled.



We believe that having the best rehabilitation is of utmost importance and the sooner it starts, the better. We use our considerable expertise, experience and contacts to make this possible.

We have excellent contacts with all the major insurers and defence solicitors so we are able to make very early contact with the opposing party. This allows us to secure interim payments and funding for rehabilitation, equipment and accommodation long before other solicitors are able to do.

To help promote timely and effective rehabilitation, we have published a paper at ISCOS on the benefits of using both NHS and private rehabilitation to give our clients the best possible independence.




Many of our clients stay in touch for years after their case is settled. With us, you will feel like one of the family, the Aspire Law family.



We are widely recommended by clients and highly respected within the legal and medical professions. We are endorsed by barristers and other professional experts across the UK, and by the legal directories. But don’t take our word for it – here’s what some of them have to say:

Client quote:

“Damian, and Chris,
There will never be enough words to express my gratitude to you all for all your support and guidance over what has been the most difficult five years of my life. Your kindness and resilience on this journey can never be forgotten nor will it ever be. Your hard work has allowed me to hopefully get some closure and please God maybe start to rebuild my life. Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart.”


Client quote:
“Thank you so very much for all that you have done for me. From the
beginning, you took great care to take the stress out of what would otherwise
have been an unbelievably traumatic time for us. You were always so
considerate and thoughtful.”


Quote from barrister Mr Rob Weir KC, Deveraux Chambers:

“Damian and Amanda at Aspire Law did a great job getting the case evidentially ready to secure a settlement without the need for drawn out court proceedings. It demonstrates the value of choosing an experienced team to act for you”


Quotes from legal directories:

“Damian is excellent. He is very well organised, personable and thorough in pursuit of the best result for the client.” Chambers & Partners Directory 2023


“Raquel Siganporia is a stand out partner who demonstrates strengths in difficult situations and unending patience, empathy and thoroughness, as well as a strong legal knowledge in her field.” Legal 500


 “Matthew Claxson as a partner is outstanding. He appears to work tirelessly on a case, giving it the attention and financial resources it deserves, all to the ultimate good of his client.” Legal 500



We believe in helping everyone affected by spinal cord injury, regardless of whether they have a compensation claim or not, and we strive to support the SCI community as a whole.

That’s why we give 50% of our profits to Aspire, who are one of the main spinal cord injury charities and our joint venture partners. We also help fund flagship services for the two other main spinal cord injury charities, the Spinal Injuries Association and Back Up. This means that by choosing Aspire Law, you are also helping provide support for those who unfortunately have no compensation claim.

We have also created the Aspire Law Emergency Grant Fund for those struggling in the aftermath of injury, whether or not they have a claim.

And looking to the future, we actively support and promote developments in scientific research at Stoke Mandeville Hospital to help improve long term outcomes for people with spinal cord injury.
