Brain injury rehabilitation journey
Serious brain injuries can have long-term or permanent effects on the lives of the injured and their family.
At Thompsons Solicitors, we understand that starting the journey of acquired brain injury treatment and rehabilitation is of the utmost importance in order to ensure you have the best possible chance of recovery following the injury. That’s why our brain injury solicitors will start the rehabilitation process, alongside your litigation case, as soon as we’re instructed.
Acquired brain injury support
If you, or someone you know, has sustained a head injury as a result of an accident, you will no doubt have lots of traumatic brain injury questions you’ll want to ask. Thompsons has access to a network of acquired brain injury support specialists who can help you during your recovery. Karl De-Loyde, one of our expert brain injury solicitors, has mapped out what will typically happen during a brain injury rehabilitation journey.
It is important that the injured person gets legal representation as soon as possible because that can help with the rehabilitation process, which is paramount to recovery.
It is common for us to communicate with the relatives of the injured person at the start of the case because the client with the acquired brain injury may well be in the early stages of recovery and unable to instruct us.
The client care consultant we instruct on behalf of our client are always professionals who are specialists in knowing when and where someone needs to be throughout their acquired brain injury treatment and rehabilitation stages of recovery.
These professionals are involved in working with the client as soon as they are instructed by us.
Thompsons will always apply for an interim payment as soon as possible. This sum can cover the cost of medical treatment, therapies, support, transport, replacement wages, and any home adaptations needed before any final compensation is agreed or ordered as a judgement in the case.
Acquired brain injury claims are complicated but we will do everything we can to get you the maximum compensation in the shortest possible time.
Once liability is admitted, where needed, a case manager takes over from the client care consultant. The case manager coordinates private care packages, for whatever care and acquired brain injury support is needed. This can range from physiotherapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, to organising taxi accounts and food shopping.
While the rehabilitation process is ongoing, Thompsons will continue with the litigation claim until a settlement is agreed or determined at trial.
We have long established links with charities and organisations who can provide the best support and rehabilitation for our brain injury clients, such as Headway, SilverLining, Cbit and others.
