WE WERE APPOINTED TO ACT AS DIANNE'S FINANCIAL DEPUTY AND WORKED WITH THE TEAM MANAGING HER CLINICAL NEGLIGENCE CASE UNTIL IT WAS SETTLED.

Dianne

Dianne is a lady in her 30’s who suffered a severe brain injury when she was born. We were appointed to act as her financial deputy and worked very closely with the team managing her clinical negligence case until it settled.

Dianne lives with her family in the South West of England in a house owned by her mother. When her award was finalised, significant adaptations needed to be made to her mother’s house. In order to protect Dianne’s investment in the house the deputy applied to the court of protection for authority to secure the investment by way of a secure loan against her mother’s house. This meant that Dianne could live in a house specifically adapted for her needs, and also have her investment in the house protected, which was in her best interests.
