My daughter had serious injury in 1993. No win no fee solicitor appointed as she was 14.5 years "working" at pcyc during Xmas hols. She suffered dreadful injury to her leg, finished year 12, but got into drugs. In 1998 she appointed another solicitor in her own right and instructed him to keep me out of the loop as she was now 18. Our relationship had broken down and I was unable to legally communicate with the new solicitor. New solicitor negotiated out of court settlement with pcyc insurance co. I believe $250000. New solicitor did not pay previous legal to longstanding solicitor who learned about payout and told me about it and threatened to bankrupt me unless I paid the outstanding fees even though I had received nothing from the payout. I had to sell my house to pay him approx $50000. As I had signed next best friend as my daughter was under age at time of the accident. I met new solicitor who told me he had to act according to his clients instructions (my daughter) who did receive payout but gave no instructions for paying her legals but he did not give her all the money in one hit but in smaller figures as he knew she was an addict. By law he could not tell me the payout figure. Can i make a claim against either the solicitor or the insurance company in my own right? Is there a statute of limitations on time? I was unable to do anything due to the mess she created. I am only just now getting over it.
