Following a personal injury, your recovery process is very important. This means seeking the best medical help possible, as well as any necessary therapy as you recover.
If the injury occurred through no fault of your own, you may be able to make a claim. It is recommended you seek legal advice when deciding to take action. Our personal injury claim specialists here at Accident Advice Helpline will be able to advise and represent you. We will also be able to assist you with your recovery process.
If we find you have grounds for a claim, we will arrange for you to have your injuries medically examined. This in itself is an important step, because the examination will determine the extent of the injuries and potentially the size of the compensation award should your claim be successful.
Crucially, if there is strong evidence that you were the innocent party when you suffered your injury, or someone has admitted liability, our medical experts may be able to help you access private medical assistance, meaning your recovery process will not be held back by NHS waiting lists.
Accident Advice Helpline’s legal team can access the medical expertise to help you receive any necessary therapies and medical support. If you have specific injuries, such as to the back or neck, we will ensure you are able to consult the medical experts that specialise in this treatment. Time is crucial when it comes to recovering from personal injury and we will ensure you receive that vital medical help as quickly as possible.
How you manage your recovery is also very important. Your enforced absence from work will no doubt be causing you concern. Of course, your loss of income will be a problem and those losses will be included in any claim. It is important that you do not return to employment until you are ready.
It may be worthwhile keeping in touch with your employer. It demonstrates you are still committed. Once you are well enough to return, you may only be able to take on limited duties and reduced hours until you have fully recovered. You should also let your supervisor or manager know about the state of your health. Under Health and Safety, your employer may need to make changes to your working conditions and environment until you are better. While this may be a frustrating period for you, remember your recovery must take top priority. In the meantime, our legal team will be pursuing your claim.
The fear of being faced with crippling legal costs puts people off making a claim, even when they have the right to do so. You should have no such fears when Accident Advice Helpline are assisting and representing you. We work on a no-win, no-fee basis. This means if your claim is unsuccessful and no compensation is awarded you will not be faced with having to pay our fees. This should give you peace of mind during your period of recovery.
