Going the extra mile for serious injuries

Screen Shot 2015-12-07 at 13.10.51INDIVIDUALS suffering from serious injuries are set to benefit from a specialist team of lawyers trained in rehabilitation thanks to collaboration between TLW Solicitors and Pulse Community Healthcare, a provider of person-centred community based care and support services.

Newcastle-based TLW Solicitors’ team of serious injury lawyers have embarked on the training course with Pulse Community Healthcare to help understand the longer-term implications and needs of their clients.

With an extensive background in healthcare, the partnership was the brain-child of head of marketing and business development, Alistair McDonald, who believes a fuller understanding of a clients’ situation, allows the legal team to more easily identify their continuing requirements and provide a more person-centred service.

“Serious injuries is such a specialist legal area that we wanted to provide additional training for the team as compensation is only one part of the story,” he said.

“Solicitors often tackle individual cases from a legal viewpoint so with specific training in rehabilitation, our team can develop more of an understanding of longer term implications from a care perspective following an accident.

“Often it is not only the individual who suffers, but also the families struggling to get the correct rehabilitation, medical care and support they may need.”

TLW Solicitors has a wealth of experience dealing with serious injury claims since the firm established in 2000 helping many cases associated with ex-miners who suffered workplace injuries from the coal pits.

He continued: “We take all forms of training very seriously and continuously strive to get the best for our clients. With high demand for a specialist team in serious injury claims, we wanted to go the extra mile and learn about the clients’ long-term needs rather than look at it purely from a legal entitlement point of view.

“The team at Pulse Community Healthcare have been fantastic in really helping us to get a better understanding on some of the challenges faced by our clients who may have suffered life-changing injuries.

“Providing commissioned complex person-centred care packages for clients within the community, Pulse invited our team of solicitors to attend some of their specialist training courses provided to care staff before they commence working in the community.

“Training courses are often bespoke to each individual’s requirements and it was important for our legal team to understand exactly what is required to assist clients with their long-term care needs.

Service development manager at Pulse Community Healthcare Vicky McGurk said: “We work continuously to support a wide range of short and long term complex care conditions with our clients and we are delighted to help the team at TLW to truly understand the services our staff provide.

“Each individual is unique and it is important to be aware of the various implications people can suffer when they have experienced a serious injury.

“Many of our clients and their families don’t know where to turn when it comes to selecting a firm who can ensure their financial needs are catered for, so we hope that giving TLW a greater understanding of potential client care needs will help the legal team in offering a broader service to their personal injury clients.”

TLW Solicitors will be using specialist care advisors to help support the team on a case-by-case basis. The firm provides a comprehensive range of legal services across the UK and Europe to both individuals and business clients including professional negligence, personal injury, motoring offences and financial mis-selling.
