Rehabilitation support

Rehabilitation support

We understand that any form of injury, whether as a result of an accident or negligence, not only affects the individual but also their friends and family.

We tailor our support, recognising that individual circumstances can mean that even a moderate injury can have a huge impact on day to day life, and will require special assistance.

Tailored support towards recovery

Tailored support towards recovery

We know the main priority for everyone who suffers an injury is to get their lives back on track as quickly as possible.

With this in mind, we are proud to have been nationally recognised for our rehabilitation services, tailoring our support according to the severity of your injury.

Following NHS Guidelines, we make full use of legal requirements placed on defendants to consider making funds available for rehabilitation as soon as possible for injuries caused.

Our specialist claims solicitors pay close attention not only to your clinical needs, but also to the impact on your family, your ability to work and earn and to enjoy your hobbies.

Supporting people with moderate injuries

Supporting people with moderate injuries

From day one of your claim, our team will work towards getting the quickest and most effective treatment in place, such as physiotherapy, and if required, sessions of relevant counselling.

This means we will seek to identify all issues impacting on your life and reduce any immediate hardship caused by your accident. We will:

  • Ensure your finances are not a worry.
  • Keep your employer informed about how long you may need to be off work.
  • Keep your bank manager aware of your financial situation.
  • Explain to your bank that any loss or earnings will be covered.
  • Provide you with disability aids during your recuperation, if needed.

Support for the severely injured

Support for the severely injured

For those with severe and perhaps life-threatening injuries, our focus is always on securing the earliest possible help and support in order to ensure the very best chance of recovery.

We know that the impact of your injuries will have a profound effect on your life going forwards and want to make sure our expertise and experience provides you with the very best chance of rebuilding your life.

This could be through:

  • Physical or emotional support.
  • Securing interim payments to cover for loss of earnings.
  • Secure funds for aids and home adaptations.
  • Funding for private health treatment to compliment NHS services.

All of these can help to make life easier and as well as offering legal expertise, our clients also have access to a team of people with special expertise in managing serious injuries, as was the case for our client Angela Menzies, who was seriously injured in a road traffic accident.

Our 'buddy' support initiative

Our 'buddy' support initiative

One of the most helpful things we can offer our clients is access to our wide range of clients who have been through similar injuries and situations themselves.

Our ‘buddies’ support initiative sees us put our clients in touch with someone who has survived a similar injury and gone on to enjoy a new and rewarding life afterwards.

This includes support from the charity Paul For Brain Recovery, in which founder Paul Spence, who suffered a serious brain injury himself, offers one-to-one support to our clients to help them on their own road to recovery. Paul is an Official Ambassador of our work in this area.

Please ask the lawyer handling your claim for further details.

Dedicated case managers

Dedicated case managers

In complex cases we will help you to select a private, professionally qualified, care coordinator – known as a case manager. They will draw up an immediate assessment of your needs, identifying priorities for both you and your family.

They will liaise with everyone connected with your treatment, and all those involved in the legal claim. For example, you may need adapted accommodation or transport once you leave hospital, as well as clinical support in the community which cannot be provided by the NHS.

Our case managers are selected for their knowledge of private, statutory and charitable provision so you can achieve a holistic level of support at all times. They will provide your lawyer with detailed costings to enable them to seek interim funds from the compensator to implement your rehabilitation programme.

Case managers also assist us in striving to help our clients find new and meaningful ways of living their lives when they cannot return to their previous lifestyle.

Career support through rehabilitation

Career support through rehabilitation

If you had regular employment before your injury, you will no doubt be concerned about being able to return to your previous role.

We use ‘return to work’ experts who will listen to your goals and ambitions, as well as objectively assessing your working abilities and limitations.

They will assist you with the relevant steps to help you back to a meaningful occupation, whether full-time or part-time, paid or voluntary. This may include jobs searches, phased returns to work, job sharing and retraining.

If you have been injured as a child or young adult, you are unlikely to have set out on a career path and your ability to train for work may well have been disrupted.

We engage specialist careers consultants to help you find the right way forward at work, whilst living with your disability.

Since Elizabeth Maliakal took over my case for medical negligence. I am pleased to say her service was outstanding. Her communication was excellent. She was always up to date and made sure to keep in touch with me regularly. Elizabeth made sure I understood what was happening and always answered my questions in depth. Coming from a foreign background, I struggle to articulate my thoughts and feelings because of the language barrier, but Elizabeth worked her way around this. I am grateful for all her hard work. Thank you to Elizabeth Maliakal and Hudgell Solicitors.

Thank you to Hudgell Solicitors particularly Sarah Moore who was assigned to my case. I was kept well informed throughout the whole process via email and phone, and always received a prompt reply to any questions that I had. It took a long time for my case to come to close for various reasons but never during this time did I feel rushed or pressured into making a decision. Sarah was very empathetic and supported me throughout with her excellent level of knowledge and professionalism. Thank you again.
