Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a qualified lawyer happy to help you today.
If liability has been accepted can your solicitors not ask the other side for an interim payment? That would mean you obtain money before the case finishes.
If the creditors are applying for a charging order, you can oppose it - what have your solicitors said about this?
OK, the report will confirm the diagnosis and prognosis (time you will have symptoms for) and whether the time off work is justifiable, etc. Normally you can ask for an interim payment if it represents a proportion of the overall likely amount of damages. There's nothing to stop them asking the insurers - I would make this request.
In terms of the charging order there will be a hearing - the court will not allow a charging order if you can show you have money coming in at some point so you could present the medical report to them and the admission of liability - to demonstrate that you have an ongoing injury claim. That should at the least suspend any application for a charging order. If you want to go to the hearing yourself then fine but if you want an advocate then you can ask LPC Law or Clerksroom to send one - it would cost around £300 or thereabouts to oppose the charging order application.
