Towry Law approved to advise personal injury client in Northern Ireland
In Northern Island when a patient is awarded damages the money is transferred to a court funds office and is managed by the court. If the patient or the family want the compensation to be managed by an outside company they can apply to the court to have it transferred.
Towry Law says previously, approval has only been granted to a small number of firms in Northern Ireland.
Towry Law senior wealth adviser Bob Fraser says: “We are delighted that the investment service we provide to personal injury clients has been endorsed by the Office of Care and Protection. We now expect to gain approval for many more personal injury cases in Northern Ireland, as we have done in England and Wales where our service is regularly approved by the Court of Protection.
“Providing financial and investment advice to personal injury clients is an important part of our business in Northern Ireland and we are aiming to strengthen our links with personal injury lawyers to provide the best service to their clients.”
