Solicitor to give legal advice to group.

A SOLICITOR at personal injury specialists Goodmans Law has been appointed to the legal panel of a charity's support group.

Christian Beadell is one of only two solicitors in the UK to be appointed by the Group B Strep Support Group (GBSS).

Group B Streptococcus (GBS) is the most common cause of life-threatening infection in new-born babies. In some cases, children will grow up to need a lifetime of care.

The charity raises awareness and offers support to families affected by GBS. The appointment follows Mr Beadell's successful work in previous group B Strep cases.

Jane Plumb, chief executive at Group B Strep Support, said: "Some families want to know whether they can claim for what's happened to their child, and they need this information at a time when they are very vulnerable. We want to help them ensure they are advised by solicitors with real experience of the issues surrounding group B Strep infection."
