Do You Provide Access to Medical Care & Rehabilitation in a Personal Injury Claim?

As your specialist personal injury solicitors, we can help you get early and effective access to rehabilitation and medical care.

How to get the best rehabilitation

If you’ve been injured in an accident which has resulted in personal injuries, you may be able to make a successful claim for compensation.

Here at Hodge Jones and Allen, we understand that your first thought is likely to be “how do I get better?”

With that in mind, we want to help you have the best chance of recovery and to have the rehabilitation you need. To do so, you should instruct a specialist personal injury solicitor who has experience of dealing with injury cases and helping clients to access the rehabilitation they need. 

we can help.

    Early rehabilitation & personal injury claims

    After your accident you may have been to A & E and received treatment to deal with your most serious injuries. Once A & E have dealt with the acute phase of your injuries, you will be discharged with a Rehabilitation Prescription. This will set out what the A & E doctors believe you need to help you get better over the next stage of your recovery.

    Sometimes there is a lack of coordination after discharge between the A & E team and the specialist departments they wish to refer you to for rehabilitation.

    It will be left to you to chase this up with the hospital and your GP. This is time-consuming, exhausting and worrying when you are trying to get better.

    Funding treatment and interim payments

    Using a specialist personal injury solicitor means that we have the knowledge and experience to obtain funds from the insurers of the person responsible for your accident, which can help pay for early access to the rehabilitation you need.

    An alternative to obtaining funds for the rehabilitation is to agree with the insurers of the responsible party to arrange and pay for your treatment through a separate rehabilitation company which the insurers will pay for directly. This will be in addition to your claim for compensation.

    In our experience, insurance companies are more than willing to fund rehabilitation for an injured person to help them make the best recovery.

    Your specialist personal injury solicitor at Hodge Jones and Allen will also seek an early interim payment to assist with any immediate financial difficulties.

    Appointment of a case manager

    In cases involving serious injuries such as brain injuries or spinal injuries, the insurance company may agree at our request to fund a case manager through a specialist rehabilitation firm.

    The case manager is often a qualified Occupational Therapist or specialist medical professional who knows the area in which you live and can liaise with the GP, hospital and various departments to ensure that you have a unified approach to rehabilitation.

    Some of the best rehabilitation is available in specialist NHS centres but this can be supplemented by private treatment alongside.

    If you’ve suffered an injury which requires early rehabilitation as a result of an accident and you’re pursuing a personal injury claim, you can speak to one of our team today.
