Early intervention is crucial to help victims of serious accidents recover more quickly from their injuries and start to rebuild their lives. A serious accident can have a devastating impact on your life and thinking about making a claim for compensation will not be a priority. However, by consulting with legal professionals and starting a claim for compensation will help to ensure rehabilitation programmes gets underway more quickly.
It is vital that you consult with solicitors who have the expertise in complex, serious injury claims and who support the Rehabilitation Code. The Code was introduced in 2007 and encourages serious accident lawyers and the Defendant’s insurers to agree at the earliest stage possible on rehabilitation and support for the accident victim.
Rehabilitation includes not just medical and physical support but also psychological support and other services to help make life easier. Your solicitor will also consider whether aids or adaptations or other support is required to help alleviate some of the problems facing the accident victim and ensure a better quality of life.
Although it is not compulsory, as specialist in serious injury claims, Freeclaim Solicitors fully support the Rehabilitation Code providing for early assessment of a client’s needs.
