UNDER-SETTLEMENT

Medical Reports: If your solicitor has settled your personal injury claim without obtaining a medical report you may not receive all the compensation that you deserve.

Medical Expertise: Your solicitor should obtain a medical report from an expert with the appropriate experience and skill to assess the nature and extent of your injury and to provide a prognosis.

Early Settlement: Your solicitor should wait until the experts have given a final prognosis with all aspects of your injury investigated before settling the claim. Early settlement could mean under-settlement.

Financial Losses: Your solicitor should ask you about your financial losses and expenses arising from the accident which may include claims for loss of earnings, travel and damaged items.

Long Term: You solicitor should consider your need for future support, assistance, medical treatment, care and equipment as well as loss of earnings and job prospects.
