Claimant secures compensation despite being told he had no prospects of success.
In this instance the Claimant came to Aequitas Legal after being told by his previous firm of solicitors that his case was being closed as he had no prospects of success. Upon a review of the file of papers it was apparent that the alleged lack of prospects had arisen as a result of the previous solicitors’ failing to relay the Claimant’s instructions to the medical expert. I took over the case and immediately rectified the situation directly with the medical expert. The Defendant failed to make offers despite disclosure of evidence and proceedings were issued. With the added pressure of proceedings the Defendant entered negotiations swiftly and a settlement was secured shortly thereafter. It’s always worth getting a second opinion from a different firm of solicitors if your file is being closed by another firm.
