In 2007 a Rehabilitation Code was produced and is now part of the Personal Injury Pre-Action Protocol.

The purpose of the personal injury claims process is to put the individual back into the same position as he or she would have been in, had the accident not occurred, insofar as money can achieve that objective. The purpose of the rehabilitation code is to provide a framework within which the claimant’s health, quality of life and ability to work are restored as far as possible before, or simultaneously with, the process of assessing compensation.

The Claimant’s solicitor should consider as soon as possible whether rehabilitation would help the current or future situation. The same duty falls upon the Defendant also and the 2 parties should discuss the possibility of arranging an assessment for rehabilitation as soon as is practicable.

Usually an independent medical agency is instructed to assess the Claimant and draft a report setting out proposals for rehabilitation.

The Defendant will then be asked to put in place funding for the recommended treatment.
