Please ensure that we receive a letter of instruction prior to the appointment of your client. In the instruction letter you must confirm that you agree to, and will be responsible for, my reasonable fee. The letter of instruction must confirm that you agree to my terms and conditions – see below.
It is also useful if you include your client’s details and the date of the accident. If there are any specific issues that you wish me to consider please include these in your letter of instruction.
If the case is a relatively minor soft tissue injury, medical records may not be required. If the injuries are more complex, in defence cases and in medical negligence cases records are almost always required. Ideally, it is better if these can be provided in advance of the appointment so that my review of the documentation can be included in the report.
