We have highly regarded partners who work closely with the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust and the Spinal Injuries Association and by doing so our team has the knowledge and understanding required for dealing with catastrophic injury claims.
A dedicated case manager is appointed who will oversee all aspects of the claim from start to finish, including visiting clients at home, anticipating and facilitating rehabilitation needs, obtaining interim payments as well as advising on post settlement issues.
