Thanks for your question. Please kindly RATE my answer when you are satisfied
May I clarify please have you received via your lawyers a written offer for 50% of the damage? you mention you accepted this. Could you confirm that you did not accept this as full and final settlement of all your claim but merely that you accepted this amount is the extent of that individual's liability but reserved your rights in respect of other parties liability for the damage?
are your solicitors fees covered by your insurance policy or have you instructed them privately?
