Personal injury trust

Personal injury trust

If you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault then you may be eligible for compensation. A personal injury trust is designed to protect you against losing your state benefit entitlement if your claim is successful.

Why do you need a personal injury trust?

Depending on the level of the payout you may lose your state benefit entitlement. Putting your compensation award into a personal injury trust means that your benefit entitlement will remain as it is.

You will be able to draw from your trust as and when you require without affecting any state benefits you are currently receiving.

If you are concerned that you may lose state benefits due to your compensation award then contact our team at Tayntons. It is key that you seek legal advice to ensure that your compensation award is protected. You only have a 52-week window in which to place your funds into a personal injury trust, so don’t delay.
