Rehabilitation used in more personal injury claims

A recent report by the IUA-ABI Rehabilitation Working Party has found that the Rehabilitation code is now “a fully established part of the claims process”.
According to the report, 97% of the claims handlers surveyed, 93% of the claimant lawyers and 88% of the insurance lawyers say they use it at least some of the time.
The report also found that the use of rehabilitation when handling personal injury insurance claims has continued to rise.
There continues to be a variation between the different types of claim, however, with bigger injuries much more likely to receive treatment than those with a lower value. The quality of case managers and other care providers remains an issue, especially for insurers and their legal representatives, and may be holding back the use of rehabilitation.
