Post-freedom day medical reporting and rehabilitation support in event of claimant’s personal injury journey
July the 19th has been and gone, and as set out in his road map out of lockdown, prime minister, Boris Johnson oversaw his own mandate to significantly relax the remaining Coronavirus rules on the much-anticipated ‘Freedom Day’.
For the first time in 18 months, the British population are now able to go about their business (leisure and pleasure) without being legally obliged to wear face coverings in enclosed spaces - although actively encouraged to be personally responsible for upholding this ‘new normal’. Particularly in supermarkets and on public transport.
Homeworking will now only be optional as opposed to compulsory where possible to enforce during the height of the pandemic, while elsewhere, places where it’s physically impossible to maintain social distancing measures, can reopen their doors to customers. Such as nightclubs and traditional sports venues, and ‘vaccine passports’ being introduced in September.
Increased risk of personal injuries will see claimant representatives reaching out to medical reporting agencies
Of course, the more we begin to interact with both each other and once-familiar work or public access settings, then the potential for accidents increases accordingly. From employees returning to places of employment to roads becoming busier to hospitality venues welcoming back customers, as we seek to pursue more familiar working and social patterns with it comes the heightened risk of personal injury.
Covid-19 fears aside, the more we mix with others in workplaces and public spaces, the greater the likelihood of personal injuries befalling us. Which in turn will lead to the sourcing of medical reports as claimant representatives look to determine events and clarify clinical aspects directly relating to accidents which cause both physical and psychological injuries.
