Access to Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation is vital so that you can return, as much as possible, to independent living.

And the sooner your rehabilitation begins, the better your recovery should be. We are here to get you the best possible rehabilitation programme as quickly as possible.

There are a number of ways in which we can help you:

  • We will work with medical professionals and highly respected spinal cord injury experts to establish how you would benefit from early intervention and make the case for early specialist rehabilitation.
  • We can arrange an assessment so as to secure appropriate insurance payments quickly. This can allow you to access private sector treatment much more rapidly than waiting for specialist rehabilitation on the NHS.
  • We have excellent connections with the major rehabilitation experts and providers to ensure that, as soon as funding is available, you can access the best rehabilitation for you.
  • At the same time, you can rest assured that we will progress your claim as quickly as possible, collecting all the evidence to ensure you have the best chance of winning your claim.

Once liability has been accepted in your claim, we will apply for a substantial interim payment, if necessary via an application to the court, to ease the financial pressure on you and further support your rehabilitation.

It may well be the case that whoever caused your injury will be insured — whether they are a motorist or an employer. If that’s the case, the rehabilitation code sets out the framework for insurers to make funds available for rehabilitation of patients and to cover other needs. We understand this code and we will apply for this on your behalf.
