Getting Rehabilitation for your Injuries as part of a Personal Injury Claim
If you make a Personal Injury claim with us, part of the process will involve us getting an independent medical assessment of your injuries as well as an understanding of what is required in the form of rehabilitation and other elements to help with your recovery.
Why is Rehabilitation part of the Personal Injury Process?
Essentially to get you on the road to recovery. In the past, Personal Injury claims often resulted in you receiving a lump sum at the end on completion of the claim. This was seen as unhelpful to people making claims and being able to access rehabilitation. For this reason, in 1999 the Rehabilitation Code was introduced.
This encourages Insurers to make early interim payments which will help with the cost of rehabilitation. While we’re still at the early stages of your case, the Rehabilitation Code can be used successfully to get you vital early treatment, if the Insurers agree to follow the code and fund it. This means you can focus on getting the resources and care you deserve as soon as possible, to get you on the path to recovery.
Most claims are undertaken on a No Win, No Fee basis for added reassurance meaning that no money would be needed upfront and if the case is lost nothing is paid and there’s no financial risk to the injured party.
As leading personal injury solicitors our experience enables us to know the best route to getting early payments and immediate access to rehabilitation for people with injuries.
