Multiple injury compensation claims
Someone who has suffered multiple traumatic serious injuries to the body will often need to be treated at a major trauma centre where they can receive specialist consultant led care.
Multiple injuries are often referred to as “polytrauma” by medical specialists and can include serious fractures, head injuries, burns and damage to and loss of internal organs.
The most common causes of multiple injuries are road traffic accidents, motorcycle accidents, falls from heights and accidents at work.
Often these injuries can be complex and complicated which can lead to serious and long term impairment. Rehabilitation needs can be significant and individuals often need a high level of acute and continued care to support independent living.
Specialists in multiple injury claims
When making a claim for multiple injuries through our specialist team at Hudgell Solicitors, you will be provided with immediate support and guidance, whilst our lawyers work to ensure the earliest possible rehabilitation care and financial assistance.
Such support would normally take the form of case management. Our experienced case managers are medically qualified and will identify immediate treatment needs with a view to putting in to place a plan to provide the support you need to help you regain your independence.
Case managers will liaise with NHS practitioners, social services and the local authority as well as private medical providers to ensure that the best care is achieved.
Our solicitors have represented hundreds of clients across England and Wales who have suffered polytrauma injuries for which dedicated packages of long-term financial support, and physical and psychological treatment and care have been secured.

Personal support package
We recognise that no amount of compensation can ever turn back the clock in cases involving serious multiple injuries.
This is why our polytrauma compensation lawyers not only focus on maximum possible damages settlements for clients, but at all times strive to secure access to the best treatment, rehabilitation and ongoing support.
A Personal Support Package is put in place for all clients to meet their own individual specific needs, in which our team will:
- Put rehabilitation at the forefront of our work – from arranging medical assessments and treatment to rehabilitation, physiotherapy and mental health support.
- Provide immediate practical help – such as speaking to employers, lenders and insurers on your behalf and applying for means-tested and non means-tested benefits.
- Pursue interim payments – we always seek early interim payments to provide the support required and fund required home adaptations.
- Signpost to valuable support – we can we introduce clients to ‘buddies’ – others who have suffered similar injuries and experienced the ‘journey’ to recovery – or charities which can provide vital support.
- Look after you in the long-term – we provide access to independent investment advice after settlement to make sure compensation supports not just immediate needs, but also over the years ahead.
