Following your injury
It is estimated that 1.2 million people in Britain suffer with work-related injuries caused by accidents or illness. Parliament estimates that 24,381 people per year are seriously injured in road traffic collisions in the UK.
The initial impact of a serious orthopaedic injury can be devastating and completely debilitating for the individual concerned. Often, the individual will require intensive surgery, physiotherapy and other forms of treatment to try and assist with recovery.
Our specialist serious injury lawyers deal with orthopaedic injuries of all types, from a fractured hand to a complete fracture of a leg requiring extensive surgery and metal work insertion. Often there can be scarring following extensive surgery or trauma necessitating cosmetic surgery.
Because of the wide array of symptoms from pain, lack of mobility and psychological injury, it is important to gain access to the very best medical experts who will assess you and provide their recommendations for treatment, rehabilitation and care.
Financial compensation can be provided by way of interim payments so that you have access to private treatment, aids and equipment, accommodation, rehabilitation and care when you need it and also counter loss of earnings. Compensation can also be used to alleviate some of the immediate financial difficulties which can be caused by a serious injury.
It is therefore essential that you seek legal advice from an experienced serious injury solicitor as soon as possible following your injury.
Rehabilitation and support
We work with the existing specialist rehabilitation providers and the NHS to ensure that your ongoing care and treatment is as continuous and straightforward as possible.
It is important at this most difficult of times that you gain access to the right kind of help and advice. Indeed, rehabilitation is an important part of the recovery process and therefore you need to gain access to appropriate rehabilitation as soon as possible.
We also work closely with medical experts who can provide assistance with physiotherapy, psychotherapy and other means of rehabilitation to assist in getting you as well as possible, as soon as possible.
Depending on the severity of the orthopaedic injury you may require long-term support for either part of or throughout your life.
The local authority may well provide some care and support to you and your family or any carers. However, funding may well be available through your personal injury claim.
The aim of this support is to enable you and your family to live as independently as possible. The level of support will be assessed carefully to try and reflect your long-term needs.
Our aims are to support you through the legal process and also make sure that you or your loved one achieve the best possible outcome.
If we deal with you or your loved one’s personal injury compensation claim, we will do so on a completely No-Win No-Fee basis.
Do not judge the circumstances of the case as your solicitor can best advise whether any compensation is recoverable. We are recognised as leading experts in dealing with cases involving serious injuries.
We set up our Medical Negligence and Serious Injury (MNSI) Team to bring together the most specialist personal injury lawyers with medical and disability experts to fight for justice for the most seriously injured victims of accidents.
