As a self-litigant after almost seven years of ongoing PI claim for PSTD which was initially for 40k. My barrister took over my case 2years ago and elevated my claim to 90k. We had two days hearing. I prepared the bundle and delivered personally to his office a week before the date. I asked for his skeleton argument, he replied, that is my own side, I will deal with it. Hearing date the defendant barrister handed his skeleton argument to my barrister my barrister said he didn’t know he had to do one. He borrowed my Ipad and held the court for 1.5 hrs pretext of negotiating. Yes, there was negotiating but only took 5 minutes. The judge rubbish his skeleton argument and he look like idiot when he was asked to comment on the defence case law. I gave her my legal cost for 13k for her to give copy to defendant and the judge. He took it, saying not now, ‘we have not won the case yet.’ Before the hearing defendant offered 12k settlement because they believed that the case was worth 5k. My barrister said it was too low. After the first day hearing which went very bad for the defendant., I asked my barrister to push for more and reluctantly for my barrister the defendant offered 20k, my barrister said no he would get at least 40k for the claim My Barrister won his case and was awarded 5K . I quickly told him to slip my schedule of cost in for the judge to sort it out since he has not prepared one for himself instead he was cherry picking my legal cost. By reading over to the judge. Total pay with cost 7k while I have legal cost of almost 15k for this case. We are still within the week of the decision, can I re-present my cost or go after the barrister. I have waited 7years for this case .
