Post-settlement Advice for Personal Injury & Medical Negligence Awards

Personal injury and medical negligence awards are often substantial in size and the injured or disabled person will frequently have complex needs that put pressure on the capital available. Furthermore, recipients of personal injury awards will likely be entitled to State Benefits; part of our role is to ensure that, where possible, the impact of the award on future entitlement to State Benefits is minimised.

Where large lump sum settlements are concerned, the Court expects that the award will be invested in an appropriate manner with a view to ensuring that future needs can be met over the course of the injured or disabled person’s lifetime. In this respect, the investment portfolio should be designed to achieve sufficient returns such that the last pound is spent on the day that the recipient draws their last breath.

Furthermore, it is essential that risk is controlled when managing investment portfolios for recipients of personal injury and medical negligence claims. The Gresham Wealth Management Investment Committee have many years’ experience of constructing and monitoring investment portfolios with a view to targeting a specific level of risk.

There are many considerations that are made when managing investment portfolios for recipients of personal injury and medical negligence awards, but at a high level, the goal is to improve the ability of the award to meet future expenditure requirements (by achieving a certain level of growth) whilst continuing to meet the injured or disabled person’s short term needs in all market conditions.

    Before I chose Gresham I spoke to a number of IFA’s but none of them gave me the same confidence I had when I spoke to Morven.
