Brain injury - rehabilitation code of practice
Digby Brown Solicitors subscribes fully to the Rehabilitation Code of Practice. This is a simple document which, although not mandatory, set outs a framework in which both claimant's solicitor (Digby Brown) and compensator (likely to be Insurer) agree to a pre-determined framework which puts the needs of the claimant (the injured party) to the fore.
The aim of this code is to promote the use of rehabilitation and early intervention in the compensation process so that the injured person makes the best and quickest possible medical, social and psychological recovery. This objective applies whatever the severity of the injuries sustained by the claimant. The Code is designed to ensure that the claimant’s need for rehabilitation is assessed and addressed as a priority, and that the process of so doing is pursued on a collaborative basis by the claimant’s lawyer and the compensator.
What does that really mean?
In a great number of cases the question of who was to blame is not the argument, this can be fairly clear cut. The question is more of something called Quantum, we've established who is the wrong doer, we now need to establish what level of compensation is required to put the claimant (injured party) back in a financial position pre-accident and consider what financial requirements because of their injuries they will need in the future.
