Case management
Results driven, care focused

What we do

We provide first class case management to enhance a client’s rehabilitation in a way that makes them feel supported with clear goals and you feel reassured on cost, quality and effective outcomes.

Our case management services support children from birth, young people and adults who have suffered catastrophic injuries through personal injury or clinical negligence. The services we provide support both claimant and defendant parties during litigation to ensure clients’ needs are paramount to a successful resolution for all involved. Instructions are accepted as single or joint instructions under the Rehabilitation Code (2005).

The work we do centres on a solution focused, pragmatic approach steeped in goal setting, open and honest communication and clinical knowledge. Choosing to work with us means you can rely on some of the most experienced, focused and respectful case managers in the medico-legal sector.

Our case managers play a pivotal role in accessing statutory services, therapies, managing family dynamics and complex environments.
