“Catastrophic injury” is a term used by insurance companies and lawyers to refer to the most serious types of personal injury, such head, brain or spinal injuries and limb amputations. Typically, these injuries will have lifelong and traumatic impact and victims will generally require specialist treatment, rehabilitation, and care and support.
Due to the fact that catastrophic injury will often result in reduced life expectancy, permanent disability, reduced capacity and a requirement for specialist medical care (often 24 hours a day), it is essential that those affected receive the full compensation they deserve.
George Ide LLP is recognised as one of the UK’s leading personal injury solicitor firms. The head of our team has been described as “the best in the area for high value injury work” and we look to bring a leading legal service to our clients.
At the core of our service is the belief that achieving immediate care for the accident victim is paramount, while also striving to help dependants and those who may be suffering as a result of a loved-one’s absence from the family home.
Our independent case managers, usually nurses and occupational therapists, are available as soon as an injury victim instructs George Ide to thoroughly assess the healthcare and rehabilitation needs of catastrophic injury victims, so that our solicitors can negotiate payment of funds by the at-fault party’s insurers in as timely manner as possible.
George Ide can also help to arrange rehabilitation care to include, amongst other things, payment for private treatment, physiotherapist costs and gym memberships. We will also help clients to obtain support including providing access to a benefits specialist, and providing support and advice for work-related issues such as negotiating the payment of retraining costs or vocational rehabilitation.
