Case study 2
Julia Morrill was brought on board due to her experience as a clinical negligence lawyer and Professional Deputy. Julia was highly recommended by the QC handling the civil claim on behalf of the youth.
The solicitors conducting the civil claim were less experienced and required guidance on the interface between civil claims and Court of Protection Deputyships.
A full 24/7 care package was managed and the adaption of a property.
This was a tricky case because the civil claim only recovered 60% for damages. Difficult decisions therefore had to be made in order to balance the current needs of P whilst taking into account the long term needs.
