Personal injury trusts for Scotland
Personal injury trust for those with personal injury compensation in Scotland
Living in Scotland
Those living in Scotland can set up a trust for personal injury compensation. I can prepare the trust for you. The information on this website applies to those in the UK generally, because the benefit rules are the same throughout the UK.
There are differences in trust law and terminology between Scotland and the UK generally, but this is not a problem.
The various benefit regulations simply refer to a trust. I am a solicitor qualified to practice in England and Wales, but there is no reason why someone in Scotland cannot have a trust written under the law of this jurisdiction.
I used to be concerned that bank branches in Scotland would expect to see trusts drawn up under Scottish law. The banks play an important role in the operation of trusts, but there have been no difficulties for our clients.
If you have received compensation from an accident or injury in Scotland, or now live in Scotland, a personal injury trust can be prepared for you at a fixed fee of £480 including VAT.
You will find an explanation of trusts for personal injury compensation and the benefits below.
You can also read about my approach and how I work.

Review from August 2022
Could not be happier with the service we received
Mark was very professional and helpful throughout the full process of opening our personal injury trust.
We are based in Scotland and were initially apprehensive about using an English based service however this caused us no issues whatsoever and could not be happier with the service we have received.
If anyone is looking to open a trust account of any kind we would highly recommend Mark Thompson, five star service from start to finish!
