We understand that organising and planning the legal aspects of your finances can be daunting. It can be even more challenging if you or a loved one has been seriously injured or harmed due to someone else’s mistakes or negligence.
If you are in the process of making a serious personal injury, medical negligence or asbestos-related disease claim or have already received your compensation, you may have concerns about how to protect any interim payments or funds that have gone into your account, so that you and your loved ones are as financially secure as possible.
Perhaps you need the added reassurance of knowing that should the worst happen, your wishes will be carried out and your family and close friends will be taken care of. Or you may be worried about losing the capacity to make your own decisions in the future.
It may be that you care for a vulnerable family member who has a brain injury or other type of mental impairment (such as mental illness, dementia or learning difficulties) and have responsibilities granted by the Court of Protection and you want to protect their long-term financial security.
Whatever your situation, our specialist Wills, trusts and estate planning team can help whether you are interested in setting up a Personal Injury Trust to protect your means-tested benefits after receiving compensation, want to make a Will, need advice on inheritance tax, are looking to apply for probate or have questions about Lasting Powers of Attorney.
Our specialist services include:
- Wills advice and preparation
- Probate and estate administration
- Inheritance tax planning
- Lasting Powers of Attorney
