Court of Protection Deputyship matters are very common in brain injury and personal injury cases generally where compensation and damages awards need to be managed to last the lifetime of the injured party.
Managing Court of Protection matters and complying with the regulations and reporting requirements can be an onerous task for family members and carers who might look to professionals for support – whether to take full or partial responsibility.
