Areas of Law / Personal Injury

I am currently claiming for a whiplash injury. My solicitor wrote stating that the third party insurers had made an offer of £5,000. Then three days later he sent a second letter saying that he’d made a mistake and the offer was actually £4,000. I turned the money down, and have now been examined by the insurer’s doctor. If I’m not offered £5,000 can I expect the solicitor to make up the difference?

If you had acted on the information contained in the first letter you may have been able to take action against your solicitor but since the error was corrected quickly and you were able to make a decision based on the facts you can’t hold the solicitor responsible in any way.
