Not sure who knows on here about the accident i had a few years ago,but anyways,i had an rta 4yrs ago and was a passenger crossing the road....i had multiple injuries and was lucky to be alive....these were my injuries...
Ocepitial fracture if the skull..healed afeter 8 months-12
Torn (ACL)..crucial ligament
Damaged Patella (knee cap) my right leg
Loss of feeling in my right knee
And slight injury to my back..but thats healed now
since then ive had three operations on my left leg,two arhtroscopys and an anterial cruiate ligament reconstruction..you may remeber the last one,i have had 3years of physio and about 18months fr work in total following the accident..now developed arthiritis on both knees and will need further surgery in the future.
my dad got in touch with a solicitor for me 4weeks after accident,found out the man who hit me was driving a land rover with bull bars on the front,he hit me i went over the car and landed at the front of the car behind that hit my slightly...i cant remember the accident i have amnesia..lots more to it than this but,the insures of the driver admitted liability..but i had to accept 50/50 due to my memory,my solicitor gave me bad advice and pushed me into it,so after this i waited 3 1/2 yrs fior my solicitor to build my case for compensation,i gave him everything he asked for...proof that i had a uni placement to start trsining to be a general nurse and all my nvq docs in care..however,
3 plus yrs go by,he refuses tom let me see my files,says im not allowed,gives me bad advice then sends me a letter adv that the insurers have paid 12,500 inot court....i told him this is a small amount and was offended,in front of two witnesses he told me it was best if i took the offer and he wouldnt take none of it,lots more to this but in the end after 3 hr meeting i accepted,never saw any documents fr the insures to propose this offer....asked to see my files again,he declined.
i got a cheque for 7,000...he told me he had to pay some bills with 2,000 which i had to pay for and was witholding 3,000 until the insures pay their bill..told me the most he would take would be 500,i waited until now and he sends me a cheque for 1,900..and he has kept the 1,100 left. he sayd that the insurers didnt pay all the bill and i had to pay the rest with what i had left.
no letter from insurers again,just a nice to have acted for you ''have a nice life letter'' final. i ahve sighned nothing other than wtrite my solicitor a letter to say i accept the intial amount.
he has screwed me over from the start and i dont know what to do,in total i have had 8,900 for the accident. pitifull amount
what can i do or who can i speak to..and do you know any contact num's,he wont release my files,he says i can have the documents i sent him but i cant have rutherfords,it is their property.
help please,its driving me crazy,i have been leagally taken for a mug, and i want to know what/how much he has screwed me over for and if i could get it back.
