At CFG Law, we understand the life-changing effect a serious injury can have on our clients and their families. We’re committed to accessing early intervention, support and access to rehabilitation for our clients with a compensation claim through our award-winning Client First Service.
As part of our commitment to our serious and catastrophic injury clients, we have a Client Support Management team who work alongside the wider legal team. They are highly experienced healthcare professionals who provide practical support and insight into clients’ and their family’s needs and are integral to delivering our Client First Service.
There are many benefits for our clients and their families of our Client Support Management service. These include:
Our Client Support Managers have expert clinical experience and can be involved as part of your team from the start. They can provide well-informed guidance on available support and treatment options, helping you and your family to make the right decisions for you, as well as plugging any gaps in the information provided by the treating team.
Your Client Support Manager can also liaise with your treating team to help with discharge to suitable accommodation, including arranging and facilitating care packages and sourcing aids and equipment to improve your function and independence.
They work in collaboration with health and social care, as well as charities to ensure everyone pulls together to enable you to achieve your best possible outcome and lead a fulfilled life.
Sustaining a serious injury inevitably has a significant psychological, as well as a physical impact on you and your family.
We understand that it is important that all psychological and emotional factors are given as much attention as any physical injury to achieve the best outcomes.
That is why our Client Support Managers will listen carefully to you and your family to identify any possible underlying psychological barriers and emotional needs and ensure they are addressed as part of your support plan.
Our Client Support Managers also support families who have been affected by bereavement, ensuring emotional support is in place.
