Court of Protection & Medical Negligence Compensation Claims
The Court of Protection is placed to make financial decisions in the best interests of an injured person who has lost the mental capacity to make their own financial decisions.
Whether this is a result of personal injury or medical negligence, such as a brain injury, a Deputy can then be appointed by Court Order to manage the financial affairs of the individual concerned.
This Deputy is usually a Court appointed professional due to the wide ranging and time consuming decisions and responsibilities that need to be undertaken.
These decisions are taken while liaising with the family of the individual but the primary concern of the Deputy is to act in the individuals best interests.
Whilst the costs expended for the professional Deputy’s charges are paid from the person’s on assets, these charges are usually recovered in the claim for compensation.
Due to the fact that the individual concerned will lack mental capacity, the Deputy can also assist in wills and probate matters.
