Hello

 

My friend made a personal injury claim after a car accident at the beginning of last year.

 

The 3rd party & insurance company accepted 100% liability.

 

She made a claim for personal injury due to neck pain/whiplash through Irwin Mitchell.

 

In July 2018, an approximate settlement was made to the value of £3000 odd. My friend received £2700 and the rest was taken in fees by IM.

 

On Saturday she received a letter from IM with a copy of court documents headed 'EUI Ltd v ********' - the papers state that they are not disputing liability but they are disputing the amount paid to her for 'special claims' and want to recover that money plus costs - amounting to around £3400.

 

She spoke to IM who said that it 'probably' won't go to court. Not very reassuring, to say the least. She is really scared that they will take it to court and make her pay that money back (which she doesn't have as it has been spent!).

 

I thought that once the case was settled and a settlement paid out, that was it? I think I might not be as educated as I think I am!

 

Any thoughts? Incidences of this happening before? Outcomes?

 

All help greatly appreciated. Thanks :smile:

It is settled. SOunds like IM are shrugging responsibility. The lawsuit should be aimed at them , not your friend. Especially if it was an agreed settlement.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

Thanks for your reply.

 

What do you mean that IM are shrugging responsibility? Not sure why they should be sued. Could you explain a bit more please?

They're the ones who negotiated a settlement so should be the ones defending you.

 

Something doesn't sit right. They don't agree to a settlement, pay out then go... nah we changed our minds

Sounds like they could have obtained evidence that the injuries were exaggerated or even faked all together.

IM will know what they're on about.
