I’m concerned about keeping my childs settlement or judgment award funds safe if I die before my child is old enough to administer the funds. Is there anything my child’s lawyer can do to ensure the funds are protected?
A:Yes, every parent of an injured child should take measures to protect the childs settlement or judgment funds. If you pre-decease your child while they are still very young or if your child is brain-injured, they will have a decreased capacity to manage the money wisely. To protect the funds, your injured child’s attorney should consult with structured settlement specialists, probate lawyers and special needs trust professionals.
