CICA Claim at review stage, should I take on a solicitor now?
I have been in a constant battle with the CICA to get to the point I am at now whereby I have received my closing offer to the claim. The offer they sent me was not only not enough, but actually insulting! So I have been in contact with some legal services for advice, however I am worried they are being somewhat biased to get the business.
They have advised me that they would take on my case for a percentage of the final award, minus the monies I have already been offered. They have also advised that in their professional opinion I am due a considerable amount more than I have been offered and that they would be able to achieve much more on my behalf than I ever could alone.
So my questions are as follows:
1) Is the information they are giving me correcting and accurate? (I am aware you have limited information about the case)
2) Is there anything I need to look for in regards to which solicitor to choose?
And finally any advice/information you could offer further to the questions would be greatly appreciated
