Protecting an injured Husband’s damages payout

Clive acted for a Husband who had suffered significant injuries in a road traffic accident and who had subsequently received substantial damages for those injuries.

The Wife now sought to make a claim for a lump sum payment based upon her perceived entitlement to some of the compensation monies.

Clive successfully persuaded the Court that as a matter of law and fact this would not be appropriate and the Wife’s claim was dismissed.
