Our guide to property purchase and adaptation following a serious injury

PotterReesDolan Solicitors is proud to have supported for almost 20 years individuals with serious injuries and disabilities and their families and loved ones. As a result of our experiences, we have a real insight into how compensation claims work and how they can make a huge difference to our clients’ lives.

Perhaps understandably, many people see only the large headline figures of compensation awarded to individuals without realising what the money is to be used for or how hard everyone involved had to fight to get it. Some people have even suggested that compensation is a ‘lottery win’. We know that this is not the case.

We are dedicated to helping our clients recover the quality of life they deserve. But we are also equally dedicated to raising awareness of how it feels to go through this experience – the demands on those involved, the reasons individuals deserve every penny of the compensation they are awarded, and the challenges they face in every area of their personal lives.

In this guide, we wanted to focus specifically on the experience of buying and making adaptations to your home following a serious injury - a huge, stressful and often unseen undertaking - and to offer practical information and advice for those of you who are in a similar situation.

We have expert insight from specialist disability architects, advice for new carers, examples of adaptations you may want to consider, case studies, and much more.
