Decision making is a fundamental part of adult life and the right to decide your own future should be respected and safeguarded as a personal freedom.
The Mental Capacity Act 2005 and the Code of Practice created from it was specifically enacted to promote decision making for people of all levels of mental capacity and to assist those carers or family members who are looking to add their support by finding and promoting the right measure of legal intervention.
Ideally, you or your loved one will have anticipated the risk of a decline in decision making function by preparing Lasting Powers of Attorney but if you have not or are facing an unexpected outcome, then you may be left to engage the Court of Protection for their guidance on how best to proceed.
You may even need to give thought to immediately safeguarding the proceeds of a compensation claim for any injury or medical negligence affecting mental capacity adversely to ensure that the full benefit entitlement is not compromised.
We at Quality Solicitors Acklam Bond put care for safeguarding the legal rights of our clients at the forefront of everything we do and our professional legal experience means that we are best placed to ensure that you get the most you can from engaging the law and its legal processes.
