Private Medical Treatment

In the UK, an accident claim can result in people pursuing personal injury claims, vehicle repairs , care , lost earnings and other things (see ‘things to claim’ for more).

Accident victims often claim for the costs of private medical treatment to help them recover more quickly. They find that the speed of private medical treatments and expertise provided make a real difference to their recovery.

Donoghue Solicitors, a specialist law firm dealing exclusively with compensation claims, is here to help. Our no win no fee solicitors routinely recover the costs of private medical treatment for people like you.

What is private medical treatment in an accident claim?

If you make an accident claim one of our personal injury lawyers will fully investigate all aspects of your claim with you. One area where you may be able to get valuable assistance is with rehabilitation and recovery. In our experience, the vast majority of accident claim clients wish the accident had never happened.

For those unfortunate enough to have an accident claim, they are most interested in getting their lives back to normal. Private medical treatment, such as physiotherapy, can help you do that. The treatment is provided by fully qualified experts, at a place and time convenient to the patient, and is planned around the patient and their particular needs.

For these reasons, private medical treatment can often be superior to that provided by the NHS.

What about if I already have private health cover?

Sometimes the medical treatment is provided through the client’s existing private medical cover, such as with companies like BUPA. In these cases Donoghue Solicitors can assist in recovering the additional costs for the medical treatment provided as a result of the accident, so that your premiums are not inflated on renewal.

How can Donoghue Solicitors help with my accident claim and recover my private health cover costs?

Donoghue Solicitors’ personal injury lawyers can arrange private medical treatment at no cost to you. They will ensure that any invoices are sent direct to your solicitor and included when claiming compensation from the insurers for those responsible. That way you receive the treatment you need, without the inconvenience of having to pay for it out of your own pocket. If you have already had medical treatments such as physiotherapy we will claim these back for you.

Our personal injury lawyers can also help with the out of pocket expenses such as travel to and from the private medical treatment providers (e.g. physiotherapists, doctors etc.), so that you are no worse off financially.
