Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, this is Jim, thank you for the question - I will resolve this for you.
Sorry to hear of the issue. The solicitors may have stopped acting for you as they think your credibility is in question. If a medical expert says you are unable to do work, then if the insurer films you working (when you said you were unable to), this severely damages the claim. I have dealt with both claimant and defendant cases in the past. Insurers pay for surveillance and they check social media posts in serious injury cases to try and catch out a claimant. If the insurers have footage, it diminishes the prospects of success of you recovering compensation, as the insurer will advance a defence of fundamental dishonesty and they will look to get all or part of the claim struck out. Insurers do this every day of the week, but another law firm may well still take on your case.
I am not sure if court proceedings have already been issued. Normally there is a 3 year period before you need to issue a claim unless you were under 18 at the time of the accident or if you lost mental capacity due to the accident. I note you are in Manchester and there are a few large firms there who could take on your case. My view is you try any of the following :
I hope this helps and answers the question - please feel free to ask me anything else.
Have a good day,Jim
