Hello jamie thankyou for responding my name is ***** ***** jumped to Dan. I'm just wondering if I was fairly represented or whether they might have cut my claim short , so they could get their payment quickly so they leave their position when they wanted and whether £11000 was a fair payout for a spinal injury I'm still suffering from and 7000 went in unpaid mortgage and bills due to the accident as I was self employed leaving me £4000 for 7 months of hell???

I still feel the area of my back that was damaged . I have feelings of someone pouring cups of hot liquid down my thighs and they go numb for long periods of time .I get caught so short I sometimes wet myself a bit .

You may have a claim for negligence against the Solicitor, but what you cant do is reopen the case against the Defendant.

What is the prognosis for your back according to the medical expert?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I would have to see a specialist and get one if I was to take this further. I now feel that the solicitor was leaving and rushed my case through to receive their commission prior to leaving the company , at no point did the solicitor say to me that they were leaving.
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 7 months ago.

Its hard to say without knowing. But the 2016 guidelines are this:

Up to 1 year - £2,050 - £3,630

1-2 years - £3,630 - £6,600

After 2 years but not permanent - £6,600 to £10,670

Prolonged acceleration £10,450 - £23,120

Does that clarify?
