Atherton Godfrey are proud to announce that John McQuater, a partner and the head of our litigation department, has been accredited as a Brain Injury Specialist. He is one of only 23 solicitors in England, and the only one in South Yorkshire, to receive this accolade.
The accreditation, awarded by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL), follows a rigorous assessment of his knowledge, skills, experience and success in managing and progressing traumatic brain injury compensation claims.
Mr McQuater, who has been handling personal injury cases for over 30 years, and has a vast amount of experience in handling traumatic brain injury cases, which involve severe and often life changing injuries.
He recommended by both the Legal 500 and Chambers UK. He holds APIL accreditation as a Senior Fellow and is an assessor for lawyers aspiring to become accredited personal injury or clinical negligence experts.
Commenting on the accreditation, Mr McQuater said: “I am delighted to receive the accreditation. It is further reassurance to those who need specialist legal advice that this is the right place to come.
No two cases are the same. Each person needs varying levels of care, treatment and rehabilitation. Clients can be assured that we will assert and enforce their rights and recover the highest possible amount of compensation for them.”
Mr McQuater is now also an Assessor for the brain injury specialist accreditation scheme where he will use his expertise to assess the capabilities of lawyers aiming to specialise in this highly complex field.
