Advising on the claims to support rehabilitation after an accident or injury.

We advise clients on claims for compensation under ‘The Code for Rehabilitation’, which provides a framework for injury claims within which Claimant representatives and compensators can work together.

The purpose of the Rehabilitation Code is to promote the use of rehabilitation for the injured party at a very early stage in the compensation process. This is especially important for victims of life changing injuries.

Under the Code the injured party's immediate treatment needs are assessed as soon as possible and treatment is then agreed. Funding is provided by the compensator. This helps the injured Claimant make the best possible recovery.

All claims will be subject to the same ten "markers" which should be taken into account when assessing rehabilitation needs:

  • Age
  • Pre-accident physical and psycho-social issues
  • Return to work/education
  • Dependants living at home
  • Geography
  • Mental capacity
  • Short- and long-term daily living activities
  • Realistic goals
  • Fatalities/witnessing a major trauma
  • How long ago the accident occurred

Case Managers are involved in the higher value more complex injury cases.  They are independently appointed under the Code and usually have a background of nursing or occupational therapy.

Whatever your situation we can provide expert advice. Get in touch for a free initial conversation and to discuss you options.

Our experience supporting with rehabilitation claims

  • Acting for a claimant who suffered life changing injuries and required both psychological support and extensive physiotherapy, supplied and funded under the Code by the Compensator
  • Acting for a claimant where liability is not yet agreed but where we were still able to convince the compensator that they should fund a Case Manager and any treatment which could not be offered via NHS.
  • Acting for a client who needed support when they became redundant after an accident and needed help from a vocational advisor, finding work which was suitable for their disability.
  • Arranging for an elderly client to receive a care package to ensure that they could return to their own home promptly after being discharged from hospital, despite restricted mobility. Ensuring independence whilst recovering.
