Court of Protection - medical negligence

Our probate team is frequently instructed by family or parents who have appointed our clinical negligence team. The person injured as a result of medical negligence is often not able to manage their own finances and compensation awarded or  make the optimal decisions for themselves. 

Where this is the case we as solicitors can be appointed as Professional Deputies or we can advise the person likely to look after the person's affairs on all aspects of Court of Protection. The Court of Protection's primary role is to protect those who cannot manage their own decisions and finances in their best interest. Additionally it seeks to regulate those that are appointed to look after a vulnerable person's finances.
