Clinical Negligence / Catastrophic Personal Injury Planning

Our practical and compassionate approach to Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence cases has helped many of our clients manage the personal and financial legacy of catastrophic injury or disability.

Our Personal Injury team, led by Partners Susan Tait and Alex Hatfield, advise individuals, Trusts and deputies with highly specialist knowledge and over 25 years collective experience. Our team ensures that lifetime-care plans are met through careful and measured investment strategy, tax structures, Disability and Personal Injury Trusts, and a continuous and thorough ongoing service.

We work with clients who have received single and/or periodic/multiple lifetime awards, those who may lack the capacity to make their own decisions or who may not be able to work again. We also work with clients pre-settlement, to ensure and assess the viability and/or appropriateness of Personal Injury or Disability Trusts and other vehicles appropriate to their settlement and circumstance.

Our considerable experience also extends to Court of Protection cases and we have a long history of working with and for lay and professional deputies.

When assessing Clinical Negligence or Personal Injury cases meeting an individual’s income requirements over their lifetime is always our priority.

Our specialist advice in this sector often includes looking at means-tested benefits, retaining flexible cash holdings, and assessing tax efficiency thus ensuring that your award lasts as long as is necessary whilst also helping to mitigate the significant financial risk and personal burden associated with investing a lifetime award.
