after the settlement
Once the compensation payment for your personal injury or disability has come through, you will have some important decisions to make.
Your priority is to work out and plan how to access the settlement and use it to create an environment that will help you heal, the way you need to. No two injuries or disabilities are alike.
you may need to:
- appoint a manager, administrator or trustee
The court appoints a manager, administrator or trustee in cases where the injured person doesn’t have the capacity to make their own financial decisions.
- choose a financial partner
You need to work with a financial adviser who you feel comfortable with and who has the right skills and experience to guide, support and protect you.
- choose those who will support you
You may need to have your home assessed and some alterations made. You may need a carer, therapy, counselling and equipment to help you manage.
