Duncan Lewis Personal Injury and Rehabilitation Solicitors

 

No Win No Fee Personal Injury and Rehabilitation Claims

 

Duncan Lewis is a leading firm of personal injury and Legal Aid solicitors and can advise on rehabilitation after serious injury.

 

Clients who have sustained serious injury in an accident which a third party was liable for can include the cost of rehabilitation in the General and Special Damages awarded as part of their compensation settlement.

 

If the insurance company of the party liable for the injury or accident contests the claim, Duncan Lewis can obtain a court order to make sure the compensation necessary to cover the costs of rehabilitation are paid.

 

In some cases of personal injury, interim payments can also be made to meet the immediate costs of medical care and rehabilitation.

 

Rehabilitation after Personal Injury/Accident

 

Duncan Lewis has on its personal injury team specialist consultants who have worked as practitioners in the field of mental health or rehabilitation, who can advise on a wide range of physical and mental health care options after injury.

 

Injuries which require short- or long-term rehabilitation include:

 

  • Amputation
  • Blindness/sight impairment
  • Brain injury
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Deafness/hearing impairment
  • Head injury
  • Mental health conditions (eg following brain injury/serious injury)
  • Muscle damage
  • Nerve damage
  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia/tetraplegia
  • Repetitive strain injury (RSI)
  • Speech impairment
  • Spinal injuries
  • Stroke
  • Whiplash injuries.

 

In the case of complex injuries, clients may require a multi-agency approach to rehabilitation, involving a team of medical and other healthcare experts to ensure that an injured patient has the best chance of optimal recovery from their injuries.

 

Patients with catastrophic or life changing injuries leading to severe physical disability or brain injury may require lifelong rehabilitation to address their needs or prevent further deterioration in either physical, cognitive or mental health.

 

Medical experts now take an holistic approach to patients with severe and complex injuries and as part of its personal injury claims service, Duncan Lewis Solicitors and its in-house personal injury consultants can advise on – or put clients in touch with – specialists and agencies who can help with:

 

  • Accommodation adaptations
  • Care home services
  • Community care
  • Day care
  • Medical care
  • Mobility aids and disabled equipment
  • Nursing
  • Occupational therapy
  • Personal care
  • Physiotherapy
  • Psychiatric assessment
  • Transport and vehicle adaptations
  • Treatment reviews
  • Welfare and benefits advice.

 

Care and rehabilitation after injury may take place within a residential unit – for example, a special brain or spinal injuries unit.

 

Rehabilitation after injury can also be provided in the home if appropriate – or at day centres which offer specific therapies such as speech therapy or re-learning life skills, mobility skills or cognitive skills after stroke or brain injury.

 

Your Duncan Lewis personal injury solicitor will be able to advise further on rehabilitation and agencies available to help with this.

 

Duncan Lewis is one of the few firms to have been awarded a Legal Aid Agency franchise for Community Care work, so our personal injury lawyers can also guide personal injury clients through the process of obtaining help from social services.
