Jonathan Fogerty is an Associate Solicitor and joined CFG Law in 2019. He has extensive experience helping people after serious and catastrophic injuries and is particularly passionate about supporting those affected by spinal cord injury.
Jonathan has been a tetraplegic and a wheelchair user for over 30 years following his injury in 1988 when aged 14, he dived into the shallow end of a swimming pool. His head struck the bottom of the pool, breaking his neck at C5/6 and instantly rendering him paralysed and a wheelchair user. Jonathan was treated and rehabilitated at the Southport Spinal Injuries Centre.
Because of his background, Jonathan has a close interest in spinal cord injury cases and is a strong advocate for those living with a disability. Identifying rehabilitation is key for Jonathan to improve quality of life and so the claimant becomes as functionally independent as possible.
Feedback from previous clients has praised the support Jonathan has provided throughout the litigation, his approachable nature and his personal knowledge and understanding of catastrophic injury.

I was referred to CFG by a peer supporter from the Spinal Injury Association. I was not sure what to expect, however Jonathan soon put me at ease. He has an SCI himself so I knew he could empathise with my experience. Jonathan is very attentive and is in regular contact with me, either by phone or email. He is very thorough with everything and involves my two daughters with what is happening in the case. I was impressed that he came out to see me at home as I don't think I would expect that from a Solicitor. So far, he has exceeded my expectations and I have complete trust in his professionalism and judgement. Thank you CFG for providing me with such a personable Solicitor who I know has my best interests at the heart of everything.
