On announcing the sponsorship of the Sudden website, Dianne Yates, Partner and Head of Serious and Catastrophic Injury for Birchall Blackburn Law, said:

Dianne Yates

“Brake’s Sudden website is a logical extension of its expertise and services, and we have no doubt that it is a vital resource for professionals and the public in cases of sudden death.

We regularly see the impact of a sudden and unexpected death of a loved-one on family and friends. Although the experience is different for each person left behind, the consequences are always devastating. People are left feeling isolated, lost and traumatised. Life-long support is vital to help them cope.”
