Does the existing report need to be disclosed to the other side if a new expert is appointed?

sorry another quick point, the doc involved that admittted negligence said at the time, he will not contest my claim as it was plain to see that there was negligence resulting in my sons death.

Can I ask my solicitor to sit tight and wait for their investigations / report to come in... he may admit everything in writing? would i still need my own expert if that happens?

I think you need to find a good solicitor, and start again.

The starting point is "no". But the circumstances may give reason to depart from that.

I would love to find a good solicitor, but worried I am running out of time. If I complain to the insurers about the solicitor i have do you think it is possible for them to pass me to another?

Thanks again for all you advises. x

Choose a firm yourself if possible. Research firms/individuals specialising in clinical negligence:

Like I said I know nothing about these things. I was aware that it was Maz's insurer, isn't in their interests to employ a Solicitor who won't take the case forward? Who selects the Solicitor?
If you can't talk about the problem, how are you ever going to even start talking about the solution?

Are you suggesting that an insurer sells a policy and takes a premium, while Intending to avoid paying valid claims?
