My friend was injured in February in a car crash in which she was a passenger, in the no fault car, she started a claim with a local solicitor but he is taking a age with everything and now claimed he cant do anything until the doctors say my friend is no longer in pain due to whiplash etc. then he will claim for the accident. If she pulls out and goes with a specialist firm will she need to pay this first solicitor anything for his poor service?

My wife was involved in an accident when a driver ran into the back of her, this was in August of last year, she has just been seen by a specialist, these do take time unfortunately.....

Your solicitor was quite correct in saying that he needs to await the Doctor's confirmation that all pain has gone and that there are no lasting effects. If the solicitor does otherwise and agrees a figure now and then the injured party never fully recovers or suffers a condition that was directly attributable to the accident then he would open himself up to a claim for negligence.


If you are having financial hardship right now and need some money ask your solictor to request an interim payment, this will get you some money now but it's not a full and final settlement.

No she wont have to pay but the second solicitor would probably have to provide a written lien that they undertake the first solicitors costs.


To be honest... it will take some time. If he was injured in Feb then it wont be cleared up yet. I know most firms look to settle within 6 months for their own targets but its not always possible if other things are thrown into the mix.
