Home adaptations or relocation needs following an injury or illness
An accident, injury or illness can severely restrict an individual’s ability to use their own home, resulting in significant disruption and a risk to the individual’s independence. At Lime we recognise how important it is for the injured individual to have changes made to their home environment and vehicles so that they can live day-to-day following an injury or illness in a comfortable and more independent way.
Where appropriate we will discuss home adaptations with you and include the costs of these adaptations within your compensation claim against the responsible party. We fight robustly to attain the adaptations needed and will seek early payments to alleviate financial hardship.
Our Personal Injury (PI), Medical Negligence and Industrial Disease lawyers work with specialist case managers and rehabilitation experts to explore what changes might be required to a property. Adaptations are tailored to the injured individual’s current needs and future requirements.
Common home adaptation needs
Common home adaptations can include but are not limited to:
- grab rails
- wet rooms
- stair lifts
- bath lifts
- through floor lifts
- appropriate seating
- chair raisers
- adapted kitchens, bathrooms, living spaces etc.
- sensory equipment
- adequate space to navigate around the home.
