Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Could you explain a little more about the background to your query please
In that case yes if you think you have a case then you can ask a solicitor for advice, and if they think you have a case then you can issue a Claim.
If it is defended then a Judge will eventually decide whether or not your case is valid.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
What kind of claim?
In that case you take what evidence you have to the solicitor.
The solicitor will decide if there is a chance of a claim succeeding
If there is and a claim is issued then unless agreement is reached then it will be for the Judge to decide both whether the claim is valid AND how much the compensation should be
