I'm looking for advice on my personal injury claim. I was injured at work 18 months ago. I wont bore you with the details and to cut a long story short, i am due £4000 for pain and suffering. I only started my IVA in february this year and wondered if i had to declare it to my Case officer?. Our house is in dire need of re decorating and several major appliances need replacing. Our 3 year old daughter also needs to move into her own bedroom. I have heard that you have to pay any windfall into your IVA, but is this classed as a windfall?. I cant seem to find anything in my IVA proposal to clarify the situation. I am with payplan, who my creditors recommended to me.
Any help and advice would be very much appreciated.
I think it depends on what your claim is for but you do need to run it past your IP.
It may be classed as a windfall but your IP csn help you with this.

Thanks for your quick response. I have e mailed my case officer. I think that is my IP?. I await her reply, but being a bank holiday i probably wont hear anything till tuesday at the earliest. I hope we get to keep at least some of it because we desperatly need some house maintenance. In regards to the accident, i had a plate of steel fall from a crane above. I was knocked unconcious and for several months i was vomiting with headaches and nausea. I only had sick pay for one week, so the majority,(if not all) of the claim was for the pain and suffering. Thanks again for your input guys.
Thanks Lesley, Much appreciated. I hope so too cuz i think the mrs has spent most of it in her mind already!!. I told her not to keep her hopes up though because i have a bad feeling they will take it all!!...Like you say, Fingers crossed!!.
