Limbless Association Climb of The O2 London
Written by Mumtaz Hussain
Being the business development manager for a team of personal injury and clinical negligence solicitors, it’s natural to attend networking events, but this latest one is a different kind of networking event altogether.
On a sunny and warm Friday in June. a group of volunteers and beneficiaries of the Limbless Association climbed the dome of The O2 , one of London’s most iconic landmarks.
The climb started shortly before 3pm and lasted approximately 90 minutes. The climbers were a mix of able-bodied, single amputees and bi lateral amputees, along with trained guides to help during the climb.
They all gathered at the base for their initial training talk and health and safety briefing, and to don their harnesses (they don’t let you just amble up there).
After the climb, everyone was in high spirits and their exhilaration at their achievement was clear for all to see.
The crucial thing to bear in mind is that each amputee showed resilience, determination and incredible courage, and that’s what made this climb so special.
Amputees are a remarkable group, and their clear sense of resolve is truly inspirational. More so those whose injuries were caused as a result of someone else’s negligence, whether through a medical or surgical mistake or a car accident or accident at work. The ability to bounce back after such a life changing injury and to take on a climb like this is quite remarkable.
Our experienced and dedicated team of personal injury and clinical negligence solicitors here at Anthony Gold regularly represents amputees and we are always great supporters of their efforts to lead full lives. That’s why navigating the legal landscape to negotiate a settlement is such a complex process.
We always strive to do our best in achieving the best possible outcome for our clients, so that they can move forward in their lives comfortably and have peace of mind, no matter what their injuries have been.* Disclaimer: The information on the Anthony Gold website is for general information only and reflects the position at the date of publication.
