Traumatic Brain Injury or Head Injury

One of the most interesting and rewarding aspects of my job is dealing with personal injury cases that involve a head injury. I have dealt with a number of non-fault accident cases where the injury has involved a blow to the head. The effects of this type of injury to a person is profound and when we come across such a claim we look into how the injury has affected the client’s family and friends, how their work and career is affected and what their future is likely to hold for them so that we can secure the best compensation for them.

Jointly owned property – The benefits of including a Property Protection Trust in your will

If you own property with somebody else, you will probably be aware that there are two ways of owning property jointly: as joint tenants or as tenants in common.

‘Joint tenants’ means that the co-owners own the whole property together. If one co-owner dies, the whole property passes to the surviving co-owner(s) by survivorship. This tends to be the most common form of co-ownership.
‘Tenants in common’ means that each co-owner owns a share of the property. This might be in equal or unequal shares. When a co-owner dies, their share will form part of their estate and therefore pass under the terms of their will (or under the rules of intestacy if the individual has not made a will).
