Life changing personal injury
Our personal injury team, led by Partner Susan Tait, is able to offer a range of support to you and your legal team in relation to clinical negligence. We can help before a settlement is reached by providing an independent assessment of the viability of the potential settlement, or afterwards when guidance may be needed on the most suitable settlement structure and investments.
What is clinical negligence?
Clinical negligence, formerly known as 'medical negligence', is the process by which a patient takes his or her medical attendants to a civil court for compensation.
A practical and compassionate approach to Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence cases has helped many of our clients manage the long term personal and financial consequences arising from such an event. Our considerable experience also extends to Court of Protection cases and we have a long history of working with family members in a variety of capacities, as well as professional deputies.
Our goal is to ensure that lifetime-care plans are met. We do this through careful and measured investment strategy, tax structures, Disability and Personal Injury Trusts, and a continuous and thorough ongoing service. Specialist advice in this sector often includes looking at means-tested benefits, retaining flexible cash holdings, and assessing tax efficiency, whilst also helping to mitigate the significant financial risks and personal burden associated with managing a lifetime award.
If you have had a life changing injury and are expecting a large financial settlement, please get in touch.
