Hi Everyone

My partner had an accident whilst at work 14 months ago and now she as been told she is all but retired, this will mean she will lose out on 11 years earnings amounting to around £550,000 gross.

without any increments or promotions added. This would be in addition to her other injuries.

 

She as also lost 20 years of memory and the family problems that's created.for her.

 

She suffers constant pain in her head and neck.

 

We approached our Household Insurers who agreed for our local solicitor to act on our behalf and the other sides insurers have accepted liability. She attended an assesment by a consultant some 6 weeks ago, but our solicitor has not received the report and seems reluctant to chase the consultant for it, so we are no closer to actually establishing a claim.

 

Is there anything we can do to get this claim completed sooner rather than later and try to get our lives back to some form of normality, living on benifits is very hard and our arrears with the mortgage and utility companies are growing.

 

I have trying to sell my specialist equipment and tools used in my trade to help pay the household bills, can this be reclaimed from the othersides insurers?

 

I feel if we went to specialist accident solicitors now, we would be landed with a big bill from our current solicitor, isthis correct?

 

Any help and advise would be much appreciated.

 

Thank you

These claims can take months to sort out. 6 weeeks in nothing, settle in for a long wait. NHS consultants write reports when they have time and you are not a priority or an emergency case. Was it NHS or a private consultant?

 

Was your partner employed, if so how long for, and have they been ill health retired with or without immediate pension?

 

The pension is a seperate issue to any insurance claim for damages.

Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

I used to work in personal injury, before I reclaimed my soul from the devil...

 

Anyway, 6 weeks for a medical report is standard. You can't really hurry it up, but your solicitor should chase it if you tell them to - they're there to take your instructions.

 

There's a pre action protocol to follow, so timelines are standard, all you can do is sit tight and wait to see how much the claim is valued at and whether liability is admitted or not.
