Riffat Yaqub, Partner, Hodge Jones & Allen
Riffat has 20 years’ experience of practicing in personal injury law handling complex cases involving serious injuries caused by negligence. These include brain, spinal and other complex injuries. One of Riffat’s clients commented “Thank you for the professionalism of both of you and your team that worked on my behalf…”
Both are partners in the Personal Injury Team, members of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and Law Society’s Personal Injury Accreditation Scheme. Anne and Riffat are focussed on ensuring the client’s rehabilitation is at the forefront of any claim for compensation. They work closely with all parties involved - families, case managers and all other organisations to ensure the best rehabilitative care and treatment for every client. Hodge Jones & Allen has been representing those injured by someone else’s negligence for 40 years.
A Client’s Journey Through Rehabilitation
Anne and Riffat are partners in the Personal Injury Team who together have over 40 years’ experience of dealing with serious injury claims, including complex brain injuries.
Anne and Riffat will give an over view of The Rehabilitation Code 2015 which is an approved framework within which the representatives of the injured person and the compensators (the insurance company) can work together for the best outcome for the injured person. The objective is to ensure that the injured person receives early and appropriate rehab to restore their quality of life as soon as possible.
This requires a collaborative approach rather than adversarial with the insurance company. A case manager will be instrumental in liaising with treating experts, clinicians and educational experts to put together a bespoke rehab package targeted for the injured person to look at the best social, medical, educational psychological and vocational recovery.
