This answer was rated:

I had a personal injure claim settled last year,but since then the solicitors who handeled my case have wrote to me to inform me that whilst carrying out an audit they have noted that in my case file I was not given the full details of the claim,was miss advised and the cut off date I was given about the offer would be withdrawn if not excepted was not correct and they had no record of this.

Do I have a possible case against this company?

Customer: i can e-mail the letter I revived if you would like to have it

Customer: They have stated that the settlement figure would have been higher if I was given the correct advise and not given an incorrect cut off date
