Adapting the home after a serious accident
If you suffered severe injuries in an accident, you may take a long time to recover and may be forced to adapt not only your lifestyle but also your home to cope with reduced mobility and movement.
Adaptations that will help during recovery include:
- better lighting, particularly on staircases, in bathrooms and hallways
- easy access to light switches, sockets and telephones; if you are using a walking aid, are in a wheelchair or find it difficult to move about unaided, moving light switches and sockets to a more convenient spot will help
- fitting ramps or levelling floors
- fitting a lower bath or installing a wet room, if you’re permanently incapacitated by your accident
- have beds and chairs at a correct height that allows you easy access
- remove clutter from floors and clear garden paths

In order to pay for all these adaptations, especially if they are to be permanent features of your life, you may need the help of an accident solicitor in Brenchley or other legal specialist.
