Compensation Protection Services

Williamsons understands that obtaining an award of compensation following personal injury or clinical negligence is only the first step of a long journey. The second step is ongoing protection and management of that award for life.

You may be able to manage your award without assistance.  However, if you need ongoing support or your circumstances are more complex Williamsons can offer you assistance

Compensation Protection Services

There are many different reasons why a Personal Injury Trust is created. The most common reason is due to an award of compensation resulting from a personal injury or clinical negligence claim. The money received is often substantial and the Trust provides protection for your ongoing needs.

A Personal Injury Trust protects your award from assessment for means-tested benefits. This means you will not lose that entitlement. Even if you do not currently receive means-tested benefits you may in the future and if your damages are held in the Trust then they will be disregarded for assessment.

If you have an ongoing compensation claim with Williamsons, we can work with you and your compensation specialist to manage your award. We understand that every client’s needs are unique and require individual consideration on a case-by-case basis.

WE CAN HELP IN A WIDE RANGE OF WAYS INCLUDING

  • Applying to the Court of Protection to appoint a Deputy or Williamsons as a Professional Deputy;
  • Creating and administering Trusts whilst litigation is ongoing and upon settlement;
  • Applying to the Court of Protection (if necessary) to authorise the creation of an appropriate Trust to hold an award of compensation;
