Rehabilitation Code: How can it help you?

29 September 2017

Rehabilitation Code

After an accident that results in serious and often life changing injuries, compensation is not always the best result. Often the thing that is wanted more than money after accidents of this type is for the injured person to be able to get back to the position they were in before the accident in so far as possible. This is where the Rehabilitation Code can help.

What does the Rehabilitation Code do?

The aim of the Rehabilitation Code is to facilitate independent, good quality rehabilitation in an efficient manner for injured parties. It is there to help the injured person to return to as close to their pre-accident state as soon as possible.  This requires both the injured persons solicitors and the representative for the other party to work together to achieve the best result for the injured person.

What happens if I want to benefit from the Rehabilitation Code?

We will invite the other party and their insurance company to adopt the code and agree an “Immediate Needs Assessment Report”. The report is prepared by an independent person with medical expertise. They will advise on your injuries, treatment available and what further treatment you may need.

In addition, consideration will be given to further assistance which may be needed and how else you would benefit. For example, this may include care and assistance around the home, help from cleaners, a gardener and possibly consideration of whether you benefit from having a stair lift installed if the injuries are serious enough to prevent you from climbing the stairs.

Any treatment and assistance agreed by the other party will be carried out on a private basis. This is usually funded in full by the insurance company for the other party.

What we think

We believe that early assessment of injuries and treatment can only be a good thing for the injured party. It allows for good quality treatment at no cost to the injured person at what is a very difficult time. The aim is ultimately to ensure the best possible recovery at the earliest opportunity.
