What would you like to know about this please?
Well, it depends.
On the face of it there is a claim.
If your solicitor is saying that it is a weak one though then probably his answer is more reliable as he has had full vision of the case and I have not.
The fact that you were drinking per se is no defence although I suppose it may be part and parcel of an allegation that you were negligent. That would lead to a reduction for contributory negligence but I don't know if that is the purpose to which this is being put.
You should take very seriously though the advice of your solicitor.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Ok. Good luck.
