How we can help you

After being discharged from hospital, usually you will need aids, equipment and ongoing medical treatment to return you to independent living. We are able to assist with this, usually by ensuring that interim payments are secured from those ensuring the party at fault where liability has been accepted, but our assistance also extends to:

• Contact with local social services to check the extent of care and therapy being provided and to secure an increase where necessary.

• Checking the adequacy of your accommodation and considering whether adaptations should be sought.

• Considering whether we could find you further assistance through charities or support networks.

• Reviewing benefits to ensure you are receiving all social security payments that you are entitled to.

• Arranging expert help with setting up a personal injury trust which would safeguard your benefits when you receive interim payments or your final compensation settlement.

Call us today and one of our experienced specialists will help guide you through the process.
