Deputyship Compensation Claims

If you have a claim which is ongoing at the moment, now is exactly the right time to discuss your case with a professional deputy. If it was your accident that caused your brain injury, then the cost of obtaining the help you need from a professional in managing your money should be recoverable as part of your claim.

This means that you won’t be out of pocket by using a professional deputy because the defendants will have to pay for the costs of the deputyship when they work out what your damages should be.

If you’re not sure whether the solicitor making your claim has budgeted for a professional deputy, just ask them. If they haven’t already allowed for it in your claim, why not ask them to speak to one of our experts today to find out how much could be claimed towards professional deputyship costs?

Our team regularly puts together schedules showing all the different costs associated with deputyship that your solicitor should cover off when making your claim. We would be happy to chat this through with you or your solicitor to make sure that you are claiming everything you are entitled to.

If you would like to have a chat about your options or how we may be able to help you please contact a member of the team, complete our call back form or contact us directly at your local office.
