  • About case management

    Case management is a process which involves co-ordination of rehabilitation, care and support of those with complex needs, particularly arising after serious injury such as head/brain or spinal injury, and who require assistance meeting their health, social care, educational and employment needs.

  • About case managers

    A case manager is a qualified professional, such as a nurse, occupational therapist or social worker, who uses their professionally acquired skills to carry out and coordinate therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation. They are frequently instructed in legal cases involving the seriously injured. It is very important, when serious injury arises as a result of an accident (road, work or other), medical negligence or assault that a specialist solicitor is contacted very early on so that they can assist in obtaining the necessary rehabilitation from the negligent party.

  • What do they do?

    The role of a case manager is to assess the needs of their clients and their families in order to ascertain the best and most relevant resources available, which will achieve the maximum benefit for the injured party.

    They will prepare and implement a support package tailored to the individual needs of their client and their families, by putting in place systems which co-ordinate health, rehabilitation, social service and other agencies and ensure that a tailor made programme for rehabilitation is provided to the injured party.

    Case managers will act as a point of contact for the client, their families and others, including therapists and legal professionals.
