At Boyes Turner we aim to help our severely injured clients achieve their best possible recovery. We do this with rehabilitation.

Where our client has suffered a severe injury caused by an employer, public body or other road user’s negligence we can often obtain rehab funding from the defendant’s insurer. This allows our client’s rehab to get started straight away. Early rehab means better recovery.

In many cases, our early help ensures that rehabilitation follows seamlessly from the client’s acute NHS hospital care, building on the healing that has already begun.

Our clients deserve the best chance of recovery. Every small improvement that they gain from rehab gives them greater benefit and maximises their recovery. Small gains in function make a big difference after a devastating injury. For some, this means access to therapies to improve mobility, speech and cognitive function, overcoming isolation and dependence by using assistive technology to communicate with others, learn, access education, work or enjoy hobbies and entertainment. It can provide greater independence with adapted vehicles, specialist wheelchairs or custom-made prosthetics. It might allow the client to live independently in adapted accommodation with the guarantee of care and support. 

Once our client’s rehab is underway, we are in a stronger position to secure compensation to cover future rehab costs to improve every aspect of their life, based on a realistic assessment of their abilities and lifelong needs. Rehabilitation is not a substitute for compensation.  

Most of our clients and their families will be experiencing the devastation of sudden, severe injury for the first time. The sooner we are instructed after the accident, the sooner we can begin to support our client families and make a lasting difference.

In the worrying times which follow tragic accidents, Boyes Turner’s serious injury lawyers have the experience and skills to take swift action when it matters and make it count for our clients. This combination of experience, compassion and action is the key to our success in claims for serious personal injury compensation.

After I have sustained an injury, how will my lawyer help with the rehabilitation process?

Rehabilitation in serious injury claims frequently asked questions

What is rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation or ‘rehab’ is the process of restoring someone back to health and normal life, as far as is possible, through training and therapy. Ideally, rehab should follow as soon as possible after the immediate or ‘acute’ medical or surgical hospital/NHS treatment which follows a traumatic injury. If we are instructed early enough, we can often arrange a seamless transfer from acute care to rehab, to maintain and build on the healing that has begun to take place and maximise the potential for recovery.

Who pays for rehabilitation?

In the majority of our serious injury claims we are able to obtain funding for our client’s rehab from the defendant’s insurer. We aim to secure rehab funding as soon as possible after the injury to avoid any delay or gaps in our client’s treatment between NHS acute care and rehab.

Why is early rehab important?

Recovery is better and faster with early rehabilitation. The injured person has the best chance of regaining more function and independence if rehab continues on, without interruption, from the acute medical care which follows the traumatic injury.

Will rehabilitation reduce my compensation?

Rehabilitation does not replace compensation. Rehabilitation maximises recovery. Clients who participate fully in their own rehabilitation and recovery go on to live more meaningful and fulfilling lives with the help of compensation. Those who have not reached a level of recovery where they can benefit from available help do not receive the highest amount of compensation.

How we use rehabilitation to help our clients – the rehabilitation process

We understand severe and complex injury. Our clients have suffered severe physical and psychological injury, which is often made worse by chronic pain and fear for the future. Their recovery and their claims need experienced management to ensure that they receive their rehab at a time and in a way that is most effective, with proper support.

What our clients say


Kim at Boyes Turner was recommended to me after I had received ineffective service from another company. From the outset, Kim has been professional, reassuring and supportive. I have always had faith in her ability to get the best outcome, not only financially, but also in helping my rehabilitation from a traumatic brain injury. She is friendly and empathetic, with unquestionable professional integrity. She was quick to grasp the important issues in my case, was meticulous in her investigating the details and analysing them, realistic in what the outcomes were likely to be and achieved a successful outcome.

I would not hesitate in recommending her and Boyes Turner.

"Amazing people"

Almost 5 years ago my sons suffered a life changing brain injury accident. A new life for everyone, so many unknowns so many difficult decisions. I met Claire and the team shortly after the accident. So many questions answered but more than that, amazing lovely people. Claire has been guiding me and the family throughout this ordeal with such compassion, there every time I needed her we couldn’t of asked for a nicer person. I have met many others with in Boyes Turner and all have been genuine lovely people, I’m now working with Ruth and Lindsay from the court of protection. Again, I can't say enough about them amazing lovely people. They truly do won't the best for my son and they did and continue to do so.

"Personal Injury Claim"

Claire is exceptionally knowledgeable in the personal injury legal domain, especially in the specific area of my injury. From our very first conversation, she was clear in explaining the potential different routes that the process could take and provided me with expectations of what I could expect along the journey.

She ensured that all bases were covered, organising meetings, discussions and necessary specialist appointments, in order to bring together the case and take it forward. Claire was then able to use her extensive pool of contacts, to appoint an "area leading" barrister, to represent me.

Overall, I was very pleased with appointing Claire and Boyes Turner to act as my solicitor for the legal claim that I pursued. Thank you for all of your support.

"Boyes turner workplace injury claim"

I approached Claire Roantree of Boyes Turner in regards to making a claim about a workplace burns injury. It was something that had scarred me physically and mentally and taken a huge toll on the lives of me and my family. Claire wasted no time in finding out what happened and made sure I was treated by known experts and quickly finding an answer to my burns scarring and how I could be treated to help manage my pain. Claire also helped me by appointing a psychiatrist to understand my situation and help me cope with post traumatic stress disorder. As well as taking as much stress of the claim away, she was thorough in every situation, making sure I had the best possible claim, and handled it all expertly, I am so very grateful to her and her team. They have helped guide my life back into a positive direction and I can't thank her enough!
