As a general rule1, damages obtained by a bankrupt in an action in respect of a personal injury or personal inconvenience or damage to reputation after being made bankrupt are not property which the trustee may claim for the estate2. Where, however, the bankrupt uses his damages to invest or purchase property, that investment may be claimed by the trustee3.
