Brian Barr Solicitors are lawyers who act for clients with Ankylosing Spondylitis throughout England and Wales.
AS is a condition where some or all of the joints of the spine fuse together. It is a painful, progressive rheumatic disease mainly affecting the spine but also other joints, tendons and ligaments. Eyes, lungs, bowel and heart can also be involved.
Typically striking people in their late teens and twenties, it can affect men, women and children and is said to affect about 1 in 200 men and 1 in 500 women.
What might previously have been a mild condition can become much more painful and pronounced after an accident.
Brian Barr Solicitors assist AS sufferers. We will act for you where AS has been made worse by an accident. If it’s particularly bad it may be possible to make a claim under an insurance policy such as a critical illness policy. It may be bad enough to justify an ill-health early retirement pension.

These are complex, very specialised cases and you need a solicitor experienced and knowledgeable in the condition. Panel solicitors supplied by your legal expenses insurer may not be best placed to do you justice. It may well be possible for you to come to us. For more information about funding please click here.
