Lawyers ready to display pedal power for SIA

Two leading West Midlands personal injury lawyers are preparing to flick through the gears for a three-day cycling challenge taking in three different countries.

Andy Shaw and Steven Santy, of Higgs LLP, are taking on the Vine and Rhine Cycle through France, Switzerland and Germany from May 17.

The event is being held to raise funds for the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA), for which Higgs is a Trusted Legal Partner in the West Midlands region.

Andy, Head of Personal Injury & Clinical Negligence at Higgs LLP, said: “We’re now into our third year of being a partner of the SIA and it’s something we’re extremely proud to be involved with.

“Our entire team has a passion for providing holistic support for those people who have been affected by spinal cord injuries.

“This cycle challenge is another fantastic opportunity to demonstrate our support for the charity, although we are under no illusions of the task we are facing.

“At best, I’m a part-time cyclist and Steven has only recently purchased a bike so we will certainly be going through the pain barrier but it will all be for an extremely worthwhile cause.”

The challenge will see 40 cyclists complete around 60 miles per day, with the opening leg focused in France as the journey goes from Strasbourg to Colmar.

Day two ends in Basel before the third and final day sees the group cycle into Schaffhausen.

Higgs LLP’s clients with spinal cord injuries enjoy a number of benefits, including access to SIA’s support network including specialist nurses, trained counsellors and an advocacy team.

There are around 50,000 people living with spinal cord injury in the UK and, each year, around 2,500 are injured or diagnosed through accident or injury, or through other health conditions such as a tumour or spinal compression.
