Could we have the background detail and what you want to know about this please?
They may have settled the case but if they have not settled it as well as they may have done, or not got you the complete result that you wanted or as much as you wanted then depending on the reason for that, you may still have a negligence claim.
You don’t automatically have a negligence claim if you don’t get the result that you want, only if the solicitor has actually been negligent in dealing with your case.
I’m going to opt out of this for another expert. Best wishes.
