If you or a loved one suffers a serious, life-changing injury, you may need help from different specialists to assist with your medical treatment, rehabilitation therapies and care and support.
Case management is a way to help you improve your day-to-day quality of life and regain as much independence as possible by coordinating these expert professional services.
A case manager will assess your needs and identify the best and most cost-effective solutions for you and your family. These will include your immediate medical and physical requirements and may also address any psychological needs you have.
After the assessment, your case manager will develop a tailored care plan that may include help so that you can do everyday tasks, assistance to get you out and about in the local community and taking part in activities.
What does a case manager do?
A case manager is a professional who works closely with individuals who have sustained a severe injury (such as a brain injury, spinal cord injury or birth injury). Their role is to assess, plan and coordinate any rehabilitation, therapies, care and support and any housing adaptations or specialist equipment that might be needed. They often have a background in health or social care.
Why might I need a case manager?
If you’ve suffered a serious injury, you and your family might find it helpful to have the support and additional guidance provided by a case manager. Their involvement may help make life easier for you and your family, saving valuable time and relieving stress.
Who pays for the case manager?
If you are involved in making a serious personal injury compensation claim, your solicitor will include the costs of a case manager within your claim. This often forms a substantial part of your claim and will include ongoing and future costs.
