Case Manager

One definition found on Google is:

‘Case managers are healthcare professionals who serve as patient advocates to support, guide and coordinate care for patients, families and caregivers as they navigate their health and wellness journeys’.

In litigation, case managers are usually brought into use when admissions have been made and quantum or interim stage is entered. Within medical litigation Case Managers (CM) are paid for by the deputy or litigation solicitor if they are holding the claimants interim funds. 

The Purpose of a CM is to support the family in putting together a regime of care and therapist that will benefit the claiment. During the interim they help to prove costs the child will need for the rest of their life.

A CM should bring in various therapists as needed, in reality all cases appear to have the same – SALT, OT and carers. A good CM will support the family.
