R T Disability Consultants Ltd is one of the leading established companies which provides an expert witness service to solicitors, insurers and Courts of Law involved in personal injury litigation.
We are able to assess your client quickly and effectively to establish what their immediate needs are. Our customers tell us that they value this service particularly in establishing costs when seeking an early interim payment. This can be undertaken on a single or jointly appointed basis as well as outside of the litigation process.
For some people, their injuries are severe enough to need intervention from a case manager to provide support and assistance to help them to achieve their optimum potential in rehabilitation and to maximise their quality of life. Depending on the nature and complexity of the injury, some people will only require support from a case manager in the initial phase of rehabilitation, whilst others will need life long support.
It is not enough for someone to tell you that they understand what you and your family are going through. Help from someone with personal experience can be invaluable. We know the importance of sorting out, as quickly as possible, those problems that seem insurmountable. Lack of a suitable wheelchair, accommodation, transport or personal support worker can exacerbate your disability, but this is something that can usually be sorted out fairly quickly and easily.
Our considerable research, experience and knowledge enable us to offer a wide variety of presentations and training programmes. We have developed several presentations which attract continuing professional development points and we also welcome commissions to produce individually designed training packages.
