Is this a personal injury case?
We cannot take the case here, this is general online advice only.
You are free to change lawyers at any time. However, how are you funding the current law form? Are you paying them or is it no win no fee?
Then before looking to change them, you need to take a long hard look at the terms and conditions of your instructing them. In almost all cases of no win no fee, there will be a clause stating that if you terminate them before the end of the case, then they can invoice you for the work carried out and that would be at private client rates. So you could face a bill for thousands that would be legallay payable.
Solicitors often do a lot of work behind the scenes. Also they do not up date on a daily basis, they will do so when there is something to inform.
Personally injury cases can take many months or even several years to conclude. This is common especially if ongoing treatment is taking place.
I am not a doctor . I cannot answer that but the lawyer cannot be responsible for what an independent person says.
Maybe he was wrong, maybe you are not as I’ll as you think, maybe what is wrong with you now is not related, in a legal context there could be many reasons that could be argued. But as advised personally injury cases take a long time.
It is not simply a matter of saying this or that has happened so I want this amount. Cases can take a number of years as I have already said especially if ongoing treatment is happening.
bit to go back to your question, yes you can use a different lawyer. You can pay privately or find a new no win no fee firm, but do be prepared to pay a large private client bill to the current form is you stop using the .
