JMW is proud to collaborate with Day One, offering comprehensive support and guidance for individuals across the UK who have suffered a major trauma including brain, spinal cord, amputation and serious orthopaedic injuries. Our shared objective with Day One is to assist trauma patients and their families who have been affected by a life-changing injury. We prioritise early rehabilitation and support to maximise the chances of our clients making the best recovery possible. Our personal injury team are based in Manchester and have over 25 years’ experience of helping clients who have suffered a major trauma.  

About Day One 

Around 20,000 people experience major trauma in England and Wales each year, with an average patient age of just under 40. Despite advancements such as the introduction of major trauma centres in 2014, which have significantly improved survival rates and reduced hospital stays, the journey following a major trauma extends far beyond physical recovery. Major trauma can profoundly affect every aspect of an individual's life and their family, often necessitating extensive legal, financial and emotional support.

The aftermath of a major trauma is devastating, halting life as it was known and causing upheaval for the individual and their loved ones. Beyond physical injuries, which can lead to significant disabilities affecting daily activities and family roles, the psychological impact is immense. A significant number of patients face mental health challenges, including depression and PTSD, compounded by the potential financial strain due to lost income or altered employment circumstances.

Day One is a national charity dedicated to providing tailored support for people affected by major physical trauma. By offering a holistic model of support, Day One addresses the multifaceted challenges faced by major trauma patients. From legal advice on compensation and employment rights to emotional and practical assistance, Day One ensures no one faces these challenges alone.

Their services are designed with compassion at their core, offering peer support that inspires and aids recovery. This approach ensures that major trauma patients and their families receive the comprehensive support they need, helping them adapt to new circumstances and embark on their journey to recovery with confidence and support.

Day One's commitment extends beyond immediate medical care, focusing on the broader aspects of recovery and adaptation to life post-trauma. Their invaluable support helps mitigate the wide-ranging impacts of major trauma, fostering resilience and aiding recovery for individuals and their families.
