Personal injury compensation claims can take many years to settle.
We appreciate that during this period you and your family will be under financial stress and at times be feeling quite uncertain about the future.
When your Lawyer starts the negotiation process to reach a settlement, you and your family will need to find a Financial Adviser with the expertise to work with you and your Lawyer to assist with process.
Once settlement has been reached, you will need your Financial Adviser to help you manage the money to ensure that it can provide financial security for the rest of your life.
This is where Fitzpatricks Private Wealth can help.
