Injuries can have catastrophic effects on people’s lives.
They can affect a person’s ability to work and potentially leave the person in need of specialist and continuing medical treatment, care and rehabilitation to assist with day to day living and recovery. It is therefore imperative that the right team of personal injury lawyers are working for you in the pursuit of your compensation. We believe that we are that team.
Our main focus is you, and helping you get your life back on track as quickly as possible.
Claiming compensation can be complicated. We are able to guide you through the process as quickly and smoothly as possible, making sure you are up-to-date every step of the way.
Everyone has different needs, which is why our dedicated team of legal experts will work with you to achieve the results you want within the legal framework. You will be part of the team in reaching those goals.
With access to many of the best providers, we will help you through the maze of medical and therapeutic rehabilitation and help you recover as much quality of life as possible, as quickly as possible.
We obtain interim payments where possible to replace lost income and help you access aids or treatment (not always available under the NHS).
We do all we can to speed up claims. We can ask the Court to make a decision on liability at an early stage and leave the valuation of the claim until the time is right. In a recent quadriplegic case, the time from accident to judgement on liability was eight months. Where cases take longer, we will focus on getting all the help and support you and your family need in the meantime.
We have a specialist Client Funds Management Team to deal with the affairs of clients who are unable to manage their own financial affairs, through injury or otherwise. Where a Receiver has been appointed by the Court of Protection, they deal not only with day to day running of households and care packages but also the long-term interests of clients. The team is also involved in ensuring that clients can and do receive independent professional financial advice when they receive their settlements so that the money is put to the best possible use to meet their needs.
Ashtons also have two Client Liaison Managers on staff who are experienced health care professionals with extensive experience assisting clients who have had serious physical and/or psychological injuries. Whilst assessing the individual needs of our injured clients, our Client Liaison Manager is able to work closely with our legal teams to provide the support and assistance which our clients may require, free of charge. This is achieved by working closely with NHS teams, local authorities, charities, and private health care professionals to assist our clients and their families. We also have rehabilitation specialists on board to assist in the early stages of the claim.
