Rehabilitation Code 2015
When you or someone close to you is seriously injured, there are a number of initial concerns that will run through your head. Mainly around how you are going to cope financially with the cost of rehabilitation.
Once a personal injury claim has commenced, there is the option of getting an interim payment from the defendant (usually through the other party’s insurer), but this can be a slow and laborious process. In the meantime, bills need to be paid and further health care is needed. This is where the 2015 Rehabilitation Code comes in.
Click here for more insight as to how the Code focuses on the use of rehabilitation and early intervention and investigations with a view to helping you recover quicker.
