    Can I keep money from a personal injury claim if I am discharged bankrupt


    Can I keep money from a personal injury claim if I am discharged bankrupt

    Given the recent economic turmoil and the toll this has taken on everyday people we often get enquiries from people who have financial troubles or have been declared bankrupt. In some cases we even hear from people who have incurred a personal injury which has been so severe, perhaps requiring expensive medication and treatments and preventing them from working, that one of the repercussions has been bankruptcy.

    Thus one of the questions we are often asked at Accident Advice Helpline is “Can I keep money from a personal injury claim if I am discharged bankrupt?’

    Below we attempt to help answer this increasingly common question.

    Personal Injury Compensation and Bankruptcy

    If you are discharged bankrupt and you are awarded compensation for a personal injury claim you will not have to give up this money. We would recommend that you declare any money that you receive in the form of compensation as it is always best to be open and honest about financial matters in order to avoid any further problems or penalties. However, there is no reason why you should not be allowed to keep this money.

    Therefore in answer to the question ‘can I keep money from a personal injury claim if I am discharged bankrupt?’, we can tell you that yes you can keep the money so why not contact us now and begin the process of claiming? Such an award could perhaps help alleviate your financial difficulties.
