Can I Change Solicitors to Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors?

When making a claim for medical negligence, you deserve to feel confident and satisfied with your legal representation. The last thing you want is to feel that your solicitors are not handling your claim in the right way, potentially wasting the time you should be spending recovering, and failing to get you the compensation you need to move on with your life.

Deciding to change solicitors is a significant decision that should not be taken lightly. However, there are several circumstances under which changing your legal representation might be necessary to ensure the best possible outcome for your case:

  1. Unsatisfactory handling of the case: if you feel that your case is not being given the attention it deserves, or if mistakes have been made that affect your claim, seeking new representation could be beneficial.

  2. Lack of communication or updates: if you find yourself consistently out of the loop or struggling to get timely responses, it may be time to consider a change.

  3. Lack of specialised knowledge: if your current solicitors do not specialise in cosmetic surgery claims, switching to a firm like Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors, which has a dedicated focus on these types of claims, will most likely improve your chances of a successful outcome.

Before making any decisions, weigh the reasons for changing solicitors against the potential impact on your case. Understanding why you are considering a change can help ensure that moving to a new solicitor is in your best interests.

Can you change solicitors?

You have the right to change solicitors at any point during your legal claim if you feel it is necessary for the success of your case. This right is an important aspect of the client-solicitor relationship, allowing you to seek the best possible representation for your needs. However, there are certain points to consider:

  • Timing: while you can change solicitors at any time, it is generally more straightforward to do so before major legal steps have been taken. Changing solicitors can be more complex during advanced stages of a case, but it is not impossible.

  • Your current contract: before changing solicitors, review your agreement with your current legal representative. Some contracts might include clauses related to changing solicitors, so understanding any potential financial or legal obligations is crucial.

It is essential to make an informed decision when considering changing solicitors. If your current representation is not meeting your needs, and you believe a change could positively impact your case, it is worth exploring this option further. Discuss this with our team today and we will help you to understand your circumstances and options.

Can I change solicitors halfway through a claim?

When is it too late to change solicitors? it is never 'too late', but the process can become more complicated as your case progresses. If a trial date has been set or if your claim is nearing resolution, changing legal representation might lead to delays. However, if changing solicitors is in your best interest, such steps can still be warranted and beneficial.

If you decide to change, it is important to communicate your decision to your current solicitor respectfully and formally. You do not usually need to explain your decision, but doing so can facilitate a smoother transition.

We will handle the transfer of files and information from your previous solicitor. It is essential to ensure this process is conducted efficiently to minimise any delays in your case.

How to change solicitors

The process of changing solicitors can be straightforward with the right approach. Every case is unique, so this process may vary depending on your circumstances, but here is a general guide to what you may expect:

  1. Initial steps and considerations: before making any decisions, evaluate why you wish to change solicitors. If specific issues can be resolved, discuss them with your current solicitor first. If resolution seems unlikely, begin searching for a new solicitor who better suits your needs.

  2. Securing new representation: research and select a solicitor who specialises in cosmetic surgery negligence, like Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors. We have the expertise to understand your case's nuances and want to hear from you. When you contact us, we will have an initial consultation to understand your situation and needs, and to explain how we can help you.

  3. Formalise the change: once you have decided to change solicitors and have chosen a new solicitor, inform your current solicitor in writing. We can help draft this communication, ensuring it is done professionally and within legal standards.

  4. Transfer of documentation: we will arrange to transfer your case files from your previous solicitor. This process should be seamless, with your new solicitor handling the majority of the logistics.

  5. Understanding costs: be clear on any costs or outstanding charges from your previous solicitor. We will provide a transparent breakdown of any new costs associated with taking over your case. Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors offers no win, no fee agreements on all of our medical negligence claims, so you can be confident that no surprise costs will arise as we proceed with yours.

By following these steps, changing solicitors can be a smooth process, allowing you to move forward with your claim with renewed confidence and support.
