Hi, I'm Lea and I have reviewed your query.
Who obtained the medical documents - the solicitor or your daughter?
What was revealed that should not have been? Was it pertinent to the case?
The other solicitor is not permitted to use this information in court. A) it was not asked for by the court and B) it is not about a party to the court case.
Your solicitor should be writing to the other solicitor to point that out and to ask for the information to be recovered from their client and destroyed.
If the matter is not resolved by that action, then your solicitor will no doubt raise it in court and all reference to that information will be disregarded by the court.
The other aspect is that your solicitor should not have released that information in the first place and you have every right to complain about this. Your client care letter will give you details about who to complain to.
Does that assist?
Do you require any further assistance with this?
Could you kindly take the time to rate my response as that is how I am paid for assisting you. Thank you.
