Personal Injury Trusts
If you have sustained a brain injury you may not be able to work as a consequence. As a result, you may need to rely on state help and claim benefits. Many benefits are means-tested, which often means your benefits stop when compensation is received. Our team includes personal injury trust solicitors who can help you to safeguard any compensation award you receive.
Our Personal Injury Trust expertise
Both our Brain Injury and Private Client teams are experienced in dealing with compensation claims that can benefit from the use of a trust. In particular, our trust experts can set up and advise on the practical day-to-day aspects of running the trust.
How we can help
We act on behalf of many clients who use trusts to protect their compensation and benefits. Even if we didn’t handle your compensation claim, our solicitors may be able to advise you on how a trust might be of benefit to you.
We can deal with the necessary paperwork on your behalf and also take the necessary steps to inform the Inland Revenue and local authority regarding the existence of the trust.
We can assist you with the yearly management of the trust to include filing Income Tax returns, reviewing investments and taking further investment advice if necessary, together with the general management of the trust.
