Having an accident and suffering, a personal injury is a very traumatic experience. Getting the right help makes all the difference when it comes to recovery. Someone who gets the right support and treatment is far more likely to make a full recovery than someone who does not get as much help after they have been injured.

The kind of medical help you get is, of course, especially important. However, getting the right level of help, even from the health service is not easy.

Many people are very pleased with the help they get immediately after their accident, but find the amount of help available after that, via the NHS, a bit limited. It can be frustrating getting back your mobility or bringing pain under control when, due to long waiting lists you have only limited access to physiotherapy.

Many people feel they could make better progress with the help of alternative therapists, whose treatment disciplines are not widely available on the NHS. In most cases, people cannot afford to pay for alternative therapists or more physiotherapy sessions themselves.

This can be very frustrating. However, it need not be this way. Most people who suffer a personal injury as a result of an accident that was not their fault can make a personal injury claim and win compensation.

This compensation could potentially cover much of the cost of recovery including private treatments to help speed up the healing process. Therefore, part of dealing with a personal injury is getting the right legal advice.

In the UK, there is plenty of very good legal advice available, and it is free. It is available from firms of lawyers who specialise in making personal injury claims. They will speak to people who have suffered injuries because of an accident and tell them if they have a winnable case.

Whilst it will take time to make the claim and get compensation, it does mean that some people are able to dip into their savings and pay for additional help to recover more quickly from their injuries. There is no absolute guarantee that the case will be won, but the best firms win well over 90% of their cases, so the odds are very good.
