..windfall. Quiet rightfully, they would like to have some satisfactory explanation for the disparity.

Why? Are you saying a persons assets ought to be consumed for their care? IOW dump the welfare state? Surely if you pay into it you ought be able extract from it.

I think he means that a payout awarded from medical malpractice calculated on the basis of a normal life expectancy shouldn't just be handed to your relatives if you die, which is perfectly reasonable. Periodic payment orders are now on the way instead.

As far as I know it's the solicitors making the big bucks from percentages on individual PI cases, as the barristers get paid something a bit like day rates.

There really isn't a "legal profession" in this country, the two professions are regulated and organised separately although there are occasional migrants from one side of the fence to another.
