- Hubbard Pegman & Whitney understand the importance of rehabilitation for victims of accidents where they have been injured through no fault of their own.
- Victims of accidents can suffer life changing and catastrophic injuries which can change every aspect of their daily lives and have a significant impact on their domestic and recreational activities.
- When bringing a claim, victims of accidents are required to mitigate their losses. This includes seeking appropriate treatment to assist with their recovery which can include Physiotherapy treatment to assist with recovery from their physical injuries or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to assist with recovery from psychological symptoms i.e. loss of confidence, concentration levels, mood swings, anger and depression, fears and anxieties, communications of feelings.
- These symptoms are often hidden and less obvious than the physical effects of an accident. Yet, they can be equally as debilitating if not worse than the physical trauma itself. Other forms of Rehabilitation include pain management and acupuncture which tend to offer more advanced methods of treating an injured person where ‘run of the mill’ methods have failed.
- Hubbard Pegman and Whitney adopt the ‘Best Practice Guide on Rehabilitation’ 2008 produced by The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and take the rehabilitation of our clients’ very seriously. We want our clients’ to be able to return to as normal a life as possible following injury, as quickly as possible.
- Hubbard Pegman & Whitney work with an independent reputable Company who specialise in providing victims of accidents with the appropriate, bespoke Rehabilitation that they need in order to regain their independence.
- They will assess cases on an individual basis and offer the most appropriate form of Rehabilitation available for each injured person – no injured person’s rehabilitation needs are the same as another’s.
