Positive outcomes for successful claims.
Settlement Trust provides a superior service to both attorneys and clients
Attorneys and their clients are only too aware of the emotional and financial toll that unexpected events can have on individuals who have suffered as a result of a road accident or medical malpractice. The Fedgroup Settlement Trust solution was designed to ease the administrative burden on both parties in the event of a favourable court claim.
The trust is registered quickly after a court order is issued and funds can be accepted as soon as possible and invested to contribute towards a better life for claimants. Any interim shortfalls can be bridged by the cash advance. Beneficiaries also know exactly what to expect, as they are kept up to date via regular SMS messages. The additional services that are offered, free of charge, add further value to their lives. In addition, all beneficiaries are entitled to a free Will drafting service by the Fedgroup fiduciary specialists.
