It is important that you get legal advice from a lawyer with the right experience to give you the best chance of getting not only the compensation you are entitled to, but the necessary rehabilitation to help maximise the prospects of recovery. You may also benefit from advice and assistance on other legal matters arising from your injury, including help accessing benefits and financial planning; employment law advice setting up a Power of Attorney and estate planning to help take care of your affairs.

Funding may be available to help you obtain immediate and long-term medical treatment and rehabilitation to help you make the best possible recovery and to minimise the impact of any disability. Interim payments can often be obtained at an early stage, to help relieve financial pressures on you and your family.

At Day One, we recognise that approaching a lawyer may be a daunting prospect. To make things easier for you, we have partnered with a group of specialist law firms to provide free legal advice to major trauma patients. Each of the firms has been through a rigorous selection process to ensure that they have a strong track record in Personal Injury work and associated areas of the law, as well as the required accreditations.

Our legal partners share our commitment to giving every patient the utmost care. They will do everything they can to secure interim payments as quickly as possible and to obtain funding for additional rehabilitation treatment, including any aids or equipment that will improve the quality of your life. Day One legal partners will fight your corner on the legal front, so that you can focus on your recovery.

How It Works

Through a rigorous selection process Day One has partnered with three exceptional legal firms, each with a wealth of experience and expertise in relation to traumatic injury cases.

We have ensured that each law firm shares our commitment to treating every patient with respect and compassion and to supporting your recovery journey as effectively as possible.

Our current legal partners were selected in May 2019 and we review this regularly to ensure that we have the right breadth of skills and expertise working with us.

When you make an initial enquiry about receiving legal representation provided by a Day One legal partner you will be contacted by whichever legal practice is on the rota to deal with enquiries that week. They will provide you with a free and no obligation assessment of your case and give you their professional opinion on the prospects of success and the potential financial outcome for your case. They will also advise you on whether they will be able to put in place support for your ongoing rehabilitation and secure early payments to relieve financial hardship.

You can speak to any of the other legal partners before making your decision about whether you want to proceed with the legal process and with their help. If you decide not to choose one of the legal firms associated with Day One this will not affect the other services and support that you can receive from us.

Funding Legal Advice and Claims for Compensation

The initial advice provided by our legal partners is completely free of charge and without any obligation.

Should it be possible to pursue a claim for compensation and you wish to use one of our legal partners, this will be on the basis of a ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreement, so you do not face any financial risk.

Any charges that may arise from related legal services such as obtaining a Lasting Power of Attorney will be clearly explained, so you can consider whether you wish to proceed with such an option in addition to a Personal Injury Claim.
