Helpful Organisations

Further support for you and your injury

There may be times when you need further support during your rehabilitation or when case management has finished.

Bush & Co are in no way affiliated to all of these organisations however we feel they may be suitable for your needs. You should always research into how these organisations could help and if they are right for you and seek guidance where needed.

Financial advice and support

There are a number of specialist firms who can assist you with financial matters. We recommend that you seek advice from an Independent Financial Advisor who has experience in advising people who have received compensation as a result of a personal injury or clinical negligence claim and vulnerable clients.

You can also visit www.financialplanning.org.uk for independent advice from the Chartered Institute of Securities and Investments.
