Customer:

hi jenny, even if his claim was for his own pain and suffering and further operations, and the claim was for him and only him i was told that ..how true is this,plus one more thing how long is a claim opened as my husband passed away 6 months,

Customer:

his own solicitor told me that i did not have a case should i get my own solicitor, kind regards jennifer.

taratill :

Hi I am surprised his solicitor has said that. The damages for pain and suffering have a value to your late husband's estate and can be claimed.

taratill :

If you want to take this on it is worth instructing a solicitor.
