Hi, I have a question but first a brief history of my problem. My husband injured himself at work some time age. The personal injury has been dealt with by Workcover and medical expenses have been settled. We went to a solicitor to see if we could get compensation. Due to the time frame of the incident, they explained that we could be outside the timeframe to apply for compensation. After a few months of them reviewing his case, told us that it was a 50/50 chance of success and they advised us that he would need another orthopedic examination and report which was needed if it went to court, although there had already been 3 done, 2 by workcover appointed drs. The solicitor paid the bill, we were reluctant to take on the debt as the injury severely impacted on out income, which the solicitor was aware of, and we said that we couldn't afford to pay the bill. We have since been told that the injury is outside the time frame allowed to make a claim and now they asking for their $5000 repayment of the dr report. My question is, since the solicitor knew of our financial status and that the claim was not guarranted to be successful, can they make us pay the doctor's bill? We didn't want to take on the debt in the first place, but they assured us it was necessary.
