Pre-settlement Advice for Personal Injury & Medical Negligence Awards

Gresham Wealth Management are qualified to act as an Expert Witness in personal injury and medical negligence cases prior to settlement. We are experienced in providing guidance in respect of the following:

Form of Award’ Reports

The report will assess:

  • the pros and cons of settling on a PPO or lump sum (or a combination of the two),
  • the extent to which the claimant’s ongoing expenditure needs may be met under each form (accounting for the tax position of the claimant), and
  • the impact that contributory negligence will have on the financial position of the claimant.


Longevity of Capital Reports (where a PPO is not included)

The report will illustrate:

  • the rate of return (critical yield) required for a lump sum settlement to provide a specific level of income,
  • the level of sustainable income that a lump sum settlement could provide the claimant with over the course of their lives, and
  • the extent to which the Ogden tables can be relied upon to capitalise an income need.
  • Loss of Earnings & Pension Losses Reports

 The report will project loss of future earnings and pension entitlements to help ascertain the appropriate lump sum on which to settle.

    Thank you so much again for your time and brilliant advice.
    Just a big thank you for all you have done for our family. We do appreciate it.
    With great thanks for all your reassuring attention over the last year. It means more to me than I can express in a few words.
    I just want to thank you and your team so very much for all you do for me throughout the year. It is a real comfort to know that my investments are in such capable hands. I literally couldn’t do it on my own.
    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. Everything, both written and spoken, is explained in an easy to understand way. All my pensions have been dealt with extremely efficiently and I am very happy with the service I have received from everyone at Gresham.
    A very personalised service… All advice is tailored to my needs with great consideration to issues I may not have thought of myself. I feel confident about my future finances.
    Thanks again for your advice, you have given me the kick I needed to take control and I’m very grateful for that.
    You’ve solved that dilemma for me… Thank you for being so clear and honest as always.
    We feel we can phone at any time during office hours if we need anything clarifying. Our financial adviser knows our personal circumstances and is in tune with our goals and lifestyle. His advice has been and continues to be excellent.
    We are both very grateful for the time you spent with us in explaining various options. We certainly feel we now both have a much better understanding of our situation & the decisions which we need to consider moving forward.
