Our serious injury team are helping John McConville, a former army sergeant, to access the rehabilitation he needs following a road traffic accident.
John’s accident happened while he was stationed in Cyprus. He suffered a serious head injury and orthopaedic injuries. The injuries were so severe that he was unable to carry out his duties in the army and was medically discharged.
Our serious injury team have helped many clients with similar injuries to John’s. He has problems with memory, struggles to carry out more than one task at a time and is easily fatigued.
We recognised that working with a rehab team was crucial to John’s recovery. While his claim is still ongoing, the rehab team and our head injury specialists are helping John to trial living independently.
Having seen the work of his care team, which includes an occupational therapist, case manager, a neuropsychologist and a support worker, John has completed an NVQ in health and social care. He hopes to be able to get back in to work in that area in the future.
