Our Serious Injury Group of Solicitors help clients beyond simply securing financial compensation. Slater and Gordon Lawyers have access to the best medical experts and treatment providers that specialise in helping people with serious injuries.
The UK insurance industry is now willing to look at paying for rehabilitation to maximise recovery, improve quality of life and, where possible, speed return to work.
Where it is clear that a client requires further rehabilitation, beyond what the NHS can provide, we will work with the defendant’s insurer to arrange for an independent assessment to be carried out. The assessment is outside of the claims process to ensure that that the needs of the injured person remain paramount at every stage.
The assessment might include a need for the following, all of which we can advise you about:
- occupational therapy
- accommodation needs - buying a new home or adapting your current home
- transport – adapting your current vehicle or purchasing a new one
- employment rehabilitation
- special educational needs
We can help you to set up a support network that will allow the injured person to get the rehabilitation support and care that they need.
